And when Megan meets Marcus, the class bad-boy who's always in trouble, but doesn't seem to care, things really start to get complicated. At least she has Home Ec class with Alice - the worst cook in the school - to look forward to, so school's not all bad! Alice's ill-fated Home Economics adventures will have readers in stitches. Ireland's answer to Jacqueline Wilson. Perfectly written stories of friendship and growing up ...these sweet stories are a joy . (Irish Independent).
