Humour for ages 11 to 16 published by Bloomsbury Children’s Books
Mrs Mad's humble opinion
10/10 Excellent work. Well done!
What's it about?
The trials of teenage love and having a best friend who is the best looking girl on the planet!
What happens?
Jess desperately wants to be gorgeous but unfortunately her best friend Flora, has that role sewn up. Jess decides to focus her attentions on Ben Jones but he doesn't seem that keen, in fact he always seems to ask how things are going between Flora and his best mate. Why is Fred who Jess has known forever the only boy who actually makes any sense? And why are there so many questions in life?
Is it easy to read?
Girls will love this!
Anything else?
This is one of the funniest books I have read in a while, Sue Limb has caught the teenage angst perfectly. The need to look good and impress, the impossibility of saying the cool thing at the right time and the confusion about who you actually fancy. I have to say the bit with the breast implants being groped is definitely the funniest thing I have read in a long time! This is a must for your summer reading! Enjoy!!
Who says so?
This review by Mrs Mad.
The publisher reckons...
Life can be trying when your best friend is a goddess, you are a woeful underachiever, and Ben Jones won't even look your way. 'Girl 15' reveals the agony, ecstasy and embarrassment of being a teenager through Jess, 15 and charming, but most definitely insane.
