Praise for It's Yr Life

I loved this book so much . . . My favourite character was probably Milla. She had some very funny, classic moments.

Hannah, age 14, Random House Australia Book Buddies

I really enjoyed this book! I thought it was funny and exciting! I found I could really get in touch with the characters. My favourite was Sim because he was the one who made me laugh the most and I liked his finger issue.

Lucinda, age 12, Random House Australia Book Buddies

I couldn't put it down. Exciting things happened all the time in this book . . . It is good because it portrays the teenagers of today's society extremely well. Also shows how our slang and constant abbreviations of words are a major factor of our lives nowadays.
