The first book in the Primrose Leary trilogy from the multi-awarding author of Tangleweed and Brine.
Primrose Leary has just started high school. Likes: her pet rat, Roderick; her best friend, Joel; being a little bit different (but not in the weird different sense – she wouldn’t like to be the only bald girl in her class or the only girl who always smelled of ham, or anything). Dislikes: living with Fintan (her moustachioed dad); the boy-school that Joel’s toddled off to without her; not having her mum around any more.
"The best children’s-fiction debut I’ve read in a long time … one of the most entertaining books that I’ve read this year."
Anna Carey, The Irish Times
"Written with a light touch and a good ear for teenage vernacular. It should strike a chord with girls who know just how hard it is to be 13."
