Dear New Diary,
I have a surprise for you. It is a BIG surprise. So, are you sitting down? No, you are lying flat on my desk while I write in you. Obviously. Okay, just breathe deeply, and try to stay calm.
The hand that is writing in you now, belongs to... BATHESHEBA CLARICE DE TROP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yes!! Yes yes yes yes yes!!!!!!
But you never thought you'd belong to a celebrity did you?
Bathsheba Clarice de Trop's life is so super starry. Or is it?

The story bounces along at a nice pace, and the jokes and clever happenings seem to be queuing up for your attention. At the centre of the whirling world Bathsheba inhabits, though, is a genuinely engaging and believable character.
I highly recommend this book, especially for older children, but also for anyone who fancies some memorable laughs, meeting some memorable characters, and reading a writer who clearly enjoyed herself while she was writing the book.
Top notch stuff.
I think this book is more for girls but boys might like it aswell, between 7 and 13 years probably. The pictures are great, and I love the way it's written, it's funny, sad, exciting and full of all the emotions a book needs.
