    Product Code: BQOIK
    Paperback
    A tender, witty ghost story - and an exciting new direction for the internationally bestselling author of Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen. Celeste and Sorrel, Reuben and Orlando: high school friends who hang out together all the time. When Sorrel gets hit by a car one rainy night, it's not surprising the others fall apart in various ways. But it's not just grief they're struggling with - it's parents. Unfair, demanding, challenging parents who are, quite frankly, making their lives a misery. That's why Sorrel decides she's not going to be properly dead till she's sorted out her friends' lives and can leave them with a clearer sense of what they want out of life. From the bestselling author of Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen, this is a tender comedic ghost story which touches on some important issues, like bullying, coming out, and the life-denying way the old want to live through the young and impose their failures on them. It's about the importance of being the person you want to be - or else, being miserable. "Dyan Sheldon is smart and generous, tough and funny." The New York Times

    Dyan Sheldon

    Product Code: BGKZP
    Paperback 11 years +
    A delightfully witty page-turner, brilliantly observed, with a sophisticated point to make about gender stereotypes - from internationally bestselling author Dyan Sheldon.From the writer of Confessions of A Teenage Drama Queen and My Worst Best Friend comes this hugely entertaining teen read, all about what it really means to be a girl. ZiZi likes to think of herself as a girly girl: her wardrobe is almost exclusively pink, her daily makeup routine can take upwards of an hour and she loves a bit of a flirt. Her best friend Loretta is very different: all of her clothes are black, she doesn't wear any makeup whatsoever and she doesn't like the way ZiZi dumbs herself down for boys - or her old-fashioned ideas about "a woman's place". One day, they decide to make a bet. Can ZiZi stand looking like Loretta for longer than Loretta can bear dressing like ZiZi? As their summer unfolds - often hilariously - the pair are surprised to find they have a lot to learn from each other.

    Product Code: BDYZA
    Paperback
    A genuinely funny story about adolescent friendship - with some excruciating moments! Jenny and Amy are best friends, they do everything together. Now they're about to start High School and Amy says it's the perfect opportunity to reinvent themselves and get in with the popular set. Jenny doesn't understand why Amy is so desperate to fit in all of a sudden - she thought they both enjoyed being unique. At first she tries to keep up with Amy: she diets, goes to the school dance, even dyes her hair (unsuccessfully!). But the harder she tries to be tall, thin and blonde the more miserable she becomes, and the two drift apart as Amy spends more and more time with the popular Rosie Henley and her followers. Jenny finds that a group nicknamed "the Martians" - due to their unfashionable appearance and oddball behaviour - appeals to her more. Finally she gets involved with the non-conformist brother of one of the Martians and commits social suicide by dressing as a frog to protest against unnecessary dissections in Biology!

  • One or Two Things I Learned About Love

    Dyan Sheldon

    Product Code: AEGGR
    Paperback
    "The Love Diaries" is a wise, sometimes hilarious, always witty new novel from Dyan Sheldon, in which our heroine learns that 'love' is not always what it seems...Hildy D'Angelo is seventeen and this is the summer she falls in love for the first time. She isn't what you'd call experienced when it comes to boys, but Connor is good looking, smart, charming and sweet (with a melt-that-ice-cap smile). Hildy is a sarcastic and funny, down-to-earth girl with lots of friends, and yet she proves to be a little bit of a fool for love. When Connor uses the L word, Hildy, already half in love with the idea of falling in love, releases her hold on the Earth. And because it's all very new to her, she thinks that Connor's irrational bursts of jealousy are signs of affection. Teething pains. No big deal. She ties herself in knots trying to appease him and not let on to her suspicious friends (or herself) that there is anything wrong. Until, finally, poor tortured Connor goes a step too far - and Hildy sees the truth at last...
