Chris Higgins successfully gripped the reader with her strength of storyline, brilliant teenager characters and terrific descriptions of situations with her first novel 32C That’s Me. It really had the wow factor with many teenage girls who read it. Now, his second novel, Pride and Penalties is out – and yes it’s even better according to my 13 year old daughter, with a strong plotline, characters you can really relate to and the right mix of emotional tension and romance, so, as a parent if you want your daughter to spend some time with a book then I can almost guarantee she’ll love this.

Soon, they're both keeping secrets and so is their mum! Good thing she's known as Spider, she'll need all the help she can get to untangle this web.
