More About the Author

My name is Jen Smith - I write teen books under the name Jenny Smith, and books for 7-10 year olds under the name J.L. Smith.

I live in Buckinghamshire, where I work as a freelance copywriter.

In 2006 a good friend said to me: 'You're funny, you should write funny'. This led to the first draft of 'Diary of a Parent Trainer', which was accepted by Scholastic. It was published in 2011, followed by 'My Big Fat Teen Crisis' which came out in 2012.

2013 saw the publication of 'The Abominators' series for children aged 7-10. The books are illustrated by Sam Hearn, who brings the stories to life with his hilarious line drawings.

I have a blog where I review books and talk about writing and life in general called: www.writingaboutpants.wordpress.com

Last year I read Diary of a Parent Trainer and I thouroughly enjoyed it, when I found out that Jenny Smith had a new book I was thrilled and immediately ordered it. As soon as I started to read I was gripped by the life of Sam and constantly wanted to know what would happen next! When I got near to the end of the book I limited myself to how much I could read as I didnt want to finish it as it was so good! I would definitely recommend this to any teenage girls from 13-16 as it is amazing! I hope she has a new book soon as they are brilliant.

I really enjoyed Diary of a Parent Trainer last year, so I was thrilled when I heard Jenny Smith had a new book out and I bought a copy right away. I can happily report that My Big Fat Teen Crisis is just as great!

Thirteen-year-old Sam Wallis is a loveable character who tends to see the funny side of life; her dad's nickname for her is 'Smiler'. But life takes a turn for the worse when her best friend Gemma moves to the Outer Hebrides and Sam has to face school without her. At the same time, an old childhood friend reappears in Sam's life, and she develops a sudden intense crush on a new boy. Soon she decides that she needs a whole new look - and possibly a slightly altered, more dramatic life story, too.

I loved all the characters in this book - except Tania, of course, but I was happy with the way things worked out in that part of the storyline.
Sam and her faraway best friend Gemma both had a brilliantly quirky outlook, and the ups and downs of their friendship rang absolutely true, as did the various messages and Facebook-style updates that appear throughout the book. I was thoroughly entertained by the inclusion of comedy goats, ironic sweatshirts, poorly sheep, knitting, music festivals, teachers with odd habits, parents going through mild mid-life crises and so much more. The story had a satisfying and touching ending. I finished this book a few days ago and I keep remembering small details and laughing to myself.

An adorable story, guaranteed to put a smile on your face.
