Funny, sassy, witty and wry, a first novel that crackles with the gossipy fascination of celeb magazines - and now available with a brand-new, cutting-edge look! Octavia Clairbrook-Cleeve wants just one thing: to be normal. But what chance of that at Darlinham House School - where tai chi, feng shui and media studies are the biggest subjects on the curriculum and where shes surrounded by the Darlings - loaded blonde pygmies like India, Asia, Twinkle and China! Octavias mum - star of a US sitcom - despairs of her daughters lack of hunger to be photographed at the right party, in the right dress, on the arm of Mr Right. But then Octavia meets handsome, A-list Alexis - and finds herself catapulted suddenly, horrifyingly, right into the glossy, name-dropping world she has tried so hard to avoid. Can an over-sized, under-glamorous girl like Octavia ever really belong at the top?
