Her diaries over a five year period have been enjoyed by millions of children worldwide and now with the culmination of the series, we felt it was time to bring them all together to ensure that a new generation doesn’t miss out on them. There are 10 titles culminating in this final Princess Diaries, Ten out of Ten, which features Princess Mia, aged 18.
Ally Kennen's observations of teenage life, along with the themes of dysfunctional families and the people who fall between the gaps in society, are what define her as one of the best authors writing for young people. In Bedlam Ally Kennen has once again been supremely clever in delivering a plot that will make your blood run cold whilst at the same time delivering dead pan humour. It's absolutely gripping but not everyone will be brave enough to read it. This is the third chilling teen title from Ally Kennen. Berserk and Beast are the 2nd and 1st respectively.

But violence from the past threatens to rob her of the future she craves while her friend Tobey is thrown off the course of his life by the escalating violence of the gang culture that surrounds him. A fast paced thriller, Double Cross also takes a thoughtful look at the escalating violence of contemporary society. ~ Julia Eccleshare
