This book is amusing from the first page and hilariously identifies with a girl’s first steps into the teenage world of boys, friendships, school and musical productions. Anna Carey’s easy style will resonate with any young girl for whom friendships are all important and self esteem is taking time to emerge. Written in the first person, in diary form, it is broken into easy sections so picking up and putting down the book won’t be a problem. Aimed at the 12+ year olds, this is spot on, with an easy chatty vocabulary and a strong storyline set in the familiar surroundings of school and the school production, which all young girls will recognise. This a realistic, gentle book that won’t shock or distress but is written by an author who clearly understands the insecurities and self analysis that girls go through. Highly recommended.
