Product description


'A funny, highly readable romp. Jess is inventive and smart and there are plenty of good, often surprising, jokes, and some neat observations' --Observer

`The novel is a delight with its cliffhanger chapter endings, incidents of nail biting tension and pacey humour. This is pink lit that girls (and boys with a copy in a plain wrapper) will love.' --Books for Keeps

"There's laughter all the way and a good old dose of romance" --Sunday Express

"With Girl, 15 we have a real star...the writing creates really enticing and endearing characterisation and brilliantly funny set pieces" -- School Librarian

`This is a hugely enjoyable and hilariously funny novel: just the ticket for summertime' Adele Geras --Guardian


Girl, 15, Charming but Insane, huge bum, massive ears, seeks - well, seeks Ben Jones, but failing that, large Muslim-type burka garment to cover her deformities. Life can be trying when your best friend is a goddess, you are a woeful underachiever, and Ben Jones won't even look in your direction. Painfully spot on, "Girl 15" reveals with Technicolor precision the agony and the ecstasy (and the embarrassment) of being a teenager. With razor-sharp observation and deadpan humour we are offered a privileged peek at the life of Jess, 15, charming, but most definitely insane. This novel has a unique voice and humour that will make you want to read it again and again - if you can bring yourself to put it down in the first place.
