Book Description

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!

5.0 out of 5 stars real and funny book 16 Aug. 2001
By A Customer
This book is one I read many years ago and still read sometimes today as it is a sweet and funny book with interesting characters and a main character who you really come to feel for and like. It's a typical 'coming of age' 'entering high school' book but still more original than a lot of them out there.

1.0 out of 5 stars horrific 21 Jun. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
this was a horrendous read. it made me feel as though anyone who is a bit different is an outcast and if you are a bit fatter then no one wants to be seen with you. put ideas into my daughters head about diets and hair dye just to make others like you. not worth the money do not buy this.
