May 2016 Debut of the Month A brand new, innovative and fun series that's pitch-perfect fiction for aspirational vloggers, digital devotees and readers with a passion for all things online! There’s always a demand for contemporary fiction for young girls that explores in a positive, reassuring way some of the concerns they might have – worries about friends, fitting in, changing emotions. Lucy Locket Online Disaster is just such a book. Lucy has moved to the UK from America and is faced with making new friends not just in a new school but a new country. On top of that, Lucy has a stammer which gets worse when she’s under pressure. It’s all pretty stressful, but creating a regular vlog – video diary – offers Lucy a way to relax and be herself. Comments from other young people on the vlog show that she’s not alone in sometimes feeling insecure. It’s a lively, fun read, the vlogging theme putting a fresh spin on the tried and tested diary format.
This will appeal to fans of Cathy Cassidy, Karen McCombie and Gwynneth Rees. If it inspires any would-be vloggers, as is quite likely, Super Skills Blogging & Vlogging published by Usborne is a practical, helpful and appealing guide. ~ Andrea Reece
