Charming But Insane

Written by Sue Limb

Charming But Insane Synopsis

Girl, 15, Charming But Insane, huge bum, massive ears, seeks . . . Well, seeks Ben Jones, but failing that, large Muslim-type burka garment to cover her deformities. Life can be trying when your best friend is a goddess, you are a woeful underachiever, and Ben Jones won't even look in your direction. Painfully spot on, Girl, 15, reveals with Technicolor precision the agony and the ecstasy (and the embarrassment) of being a teenager. With razor-sharp observation and deadpan humour we are offered a privileged peek at the life of Jess, 15, charming, but most definitely insane. This novel has a unique voice and humour that will make you want to read it again and again - if you can bring yourself to put it down in the first place.

Charming But Insane Press Reviews

Praise for the Jess Jordan stories: Limb's heroine is cleverer than Rennison's, less bonkers than McKay's, but just as captivating * The Times * Hilarious and spot-on how it captures those boyfriend blues * Mizz * The writing creates really enticing and endearing characterisation and brilliantly funny set pieces * School Librarian * Amidst the slapstick, Limb weaves such themes as friendship and rivalry, the importance or not of appearances and so forth . . . this is pink lit that girls (and boys with a copy in a plain wrapper) will love. * Books for Keeps *
