The unpredictable and hilarious final book in the acclaimed Blondes series: In Beyond Blonde sixteen-year-old Sophie Kandinsky’s world erupts: Papa leaves home to get sober; Mama retreats within herself; her first love, Luke, is forced to get married; and even her refuge in basketball is threatened. To make matters worse, her own body betrays her at every single turn! Luckily, Sophie’s adored Blondes and audacious Aunties are there to help her navigate the cascading catastrophes and shocking secrets with humour and heart.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Well-Crafted Plot But Trivializes Sexual Harassment I have to start off by saying this because it's important. There is a scene that counts as sexual harassment because someone kisses the protagonist without her permission. Although there is no doubt in the writing of the scene that this is unacceptable, the ending of the book seems to trivialize it. This is something that bothered me throughout the novel. If that scene was not part of the story, I would applaud the plot twist. The plot of the whole series is well-crafted but I cannot, in good conscience, overlook the trivialization of sexual harassment. That's why I'm giving "Beyond Blonde" one star.

Editorial Reviews

“[Me and the Blondes] is delightfully original, peopled as it is with uniquely hilarious characters and a quirky, down-to-earth protagonist. Readers can’t help but root for Sophie.” - Children’s Book News“Wonderful, zany characters, laugh-out-loud humour, and common adolescent concerns make [Me and the Blondes] a book to be passed from one friend to another until all have enjoyed it.” - Brandon Sun“[Better Than Blonde] is a delightful follow-up that may just surpass the original in brilliance and entertainment value.” - Ontario Library Association“Young readers will fall in love with [Sophie’s] over-protective aunties … They’ll cry and laugh with her, and in the end celebrate her discovery that better than being one of the blondes is being Sophie Kandinsky.” - The Globe and Mail
