‘I read your book and loved it! I couldn’t put it down. The characters were very realistic, and Louise is just like a real teenager. I really enjoyed it.’


‘Karen knows how children think and talk, and in Louise she has created an authentic teenage girl: obsessed with her friends and her diary, occasionally stroppy, and desperately insecure.’
