This award-wnning novel from emerging author Catherine Austen is a sure-fire hit for tween girls.

CATHERINE AUSTEN's first novel for children was nominated for the Canadian Library Association Book of the Year for Children Award, the Quebec Writer's Federation Prize, and the Manitoba Young Reader's Award. Catherine lives with her family in Gatineau, Quebec.

Editorial Reviews

"Becky Lennox...is a character that readers will love right from the hilarious opening paragraph. I love the message the story delivered: if you have a sense of humour, an annoying family, and an open heart, you already have everything you need to survive."
