Finding Cassie Crazy by Jaclyn Moriarty


Finding Cassie Crazy by Jaclyn Moriarty

Cassie, Em and Lydia are best friends in Year 10 at Ashbury High. Ashbury students claim that all the kids at downtown Brookfield High are drug-dealers and psychopaths. Their English teacher, encouraging the Adventure of the Scary and the New and the Joy of the Envelope, starts a Pen-Pal Project. The hilarious letters between the girls and three unknown Brookfield boys lead to an escalation of the war between the schools, to secret romance, and to Cassie learning to face the dark fears that she hides from her friends. Finding Cassie Crazy is the brilliant sequel to Jaclyn Moriarty's bestselling debut novel, Feeling Sorry for Celia . Told entirely in the form of letters, e-mails, diary entries, reports and notices on the school bulletin board, this fabulously feel-good story is both funny and scary, happy and sad, and full of the confusions of teenage existence. ' Feeling Sorry for Celia proved that this author was not only in touch with the preoccupations of the teenage mind but that she could write with enough humour and sensitivity to produce a believable and poignant story. Her sequel proves equally persuasive' - The Bookseller .
