"Britain finally has an answer to Jeff Kinney and his Wimpy Kid! if you haven't heard of Laura Dockrill before now then expect her to become a household name sometime in the next year." (Bookzone for Boys)

"Definitely, DEFINITELY beg your parents, siblings, cousins, friends, for this book!" (Awkward Donkey Blogspot)

"I want to lay out a red carpet and hire an orchestra to announce the arrival of this book! Darcy is a quirky, hilarious, mischievous, kind and cool all at the same time.

Originally posted on Serendipity Reviews
I wouldn't normally write a review so early, so this is a rarity for me, but I feel I want to lay out a red carpet and hire an orchestra to announce the arrival of this book. I may spontaneously combust if I don't talk about it now and get it out of my system.
I heard about this book back in June at the Random House Children's Books blogger party where I was lucky enough to meet the author, Laura Dockrill and hear her reading the first few pages from the book. (If you ever get the opportunity to hear Laura read, then I strongly suggest you take it - as she is a very talented performer.) So I have waited really really patiently until I could stand it no more and I had to read the book.
This is Darcy Burdock's story, she is a quirky, hilarious, mischievous, kind and cool all at the same time. She is a really strong character, which many children will easily identify with.
The book is told in first person and is interspersed with hand written stories by Darcy as well as really cool illustrations by Laura herself. Darcy is the lovable child we all see hidden in ourselves - the one that is still trying to make sense of the world and deal with life. She isn't perfect and she doesn't try to be, she just learns to overcome her issues by trying to occasionally do the right thing.
This book is both heartwarming and funny at the same time, as you follow Darcy's episodic events while writing everything down in her journal. She reminded me a little of Harriet the Spy but without the nosy, snooping tendencies.
The writing in this book oozes personality and is extremely refreshing to read. Darcy's voice is unique and original, keeping you entertained all the way through the book.

Daisy (12) for [...]

Darcy Burdock is one of life's thinkers she sees the amazing in everyday life around her. She thinks about everything and has a very active imagination. She often writes inventive stories and uses lots of people from her own life in these stories. She is a friendly character and you tend to fall in love with her because she's so friendly and I love her because she also likes Glee!

She tells about her hectic life and how growing up as a tweenager (a between teenager- not quite a teenager or a child) affects her. Her life is quite normal but she has problems at school, nosey neighbours, annoying boys, rubbish siblings and equally annoying girls as well.

My favourite part in the story is when her sister doesn't get chosen for a dance school and Darcy realises how important her sister is to her. Also there is a part whenever she walks into a room her parents stop whispering and her best friend Will is ignoring her. She feels really left out. Turns out they were planning a surprise birthday party for her.

Darcy Burdock is a very nice story with memorable characters but it's quite short, I read it very quickly, and it ends very suddenly. It's for younger tweens- about 9-11, and because I am 12 and it seemed like a book for younger children.

Verdict: If you are a fan of Lauren Child you would enjoy this book.

Review: wow! Just wow! Such a super fun, children friendly, adult friendly book! I loved this book from cover to cover, having read the majority of it out loud to a group of eleven year olds! We were all laughing at points and on many occasions I had to wait for their hilarity to dissolve before continuing with the story! Darcy Burdock is an amazing character and such a fun character because she is just like them. She is a girl so the girls can identify with her clothing and her hair issues and yet she is a tomboy who wants to go on adventures and stands up to bullies to the tomboys and the adventurous boys could also identify with her! She is the oldest of three and has problems with her siblings and yet she plays at being characters as if she was an only child-something I could identify with!

The storyline is this is wonderful because it is in little short bursts, really suiting readers of this age groups and yet each chunk is in depth enough that they cry out when you have to stop reading because it is the end of the day, such a page turner! The story of Darcy herself is interspersed with stories written by Darcy and poems written by Darcy which are completely off the wall and fabulous and also give you an insight into what is going on inside Darcy's head! They're funny but they also have a really strong message of family values and doing the right thing and are about Darcy growing up and how she handles that, something which is a key theme for children leaving primary school and moving on to different secondary schools!

Overall I just can't find fault with this book, it is realistic yet fun, childish and yet grown up and having met the author, there is so much of her in there, you can tell that she had a lot of fun writing it. I would recommend this book to anyone.

I bought this book to read as part of expanding my knowledge of 'current' reads in children's literature. I really enjoyed it. It was fun in parts and I can see a lot of young children lapping the story up!
