The Catastrophic Friendship Fails of Lottie Brooks



The hilarious new sequel to The Extremely Embarrassing Life of Lottie Brooks by the bestselling creator of Hurrah for Gin.

Lottie Brooks is back for spring term at secondary school and with her best friends Jess and Molly at her side, she can face anything.

No more trying to impress mean girls Amber and Poppy. And absolutely no more being nicknamed Cucumber Girl.

Plus, the spring musical means Lottie can dazzle her mega-crush Daniel with her talent as a singing crustacean. But her friendship with Jess and Molly seems to be going off the rails however much she tries to keep them all together.

What's she going to do? Three isn't really a crowd . . . is it?

About the author

Katie Kirby

Katie Kirby is a writer and illustrator who lives by the sea in Hove with her husband, two sons and dog Sasha.

She has a degree in Advertising and Marketing and after spending several years working in London media agencies, which basically involved hanging out in fancy restaurants and pretending to know what she was talking about, she had some children and decided to start a blog called 'Hurrah for Gin' about the gross injustice of it all.

Many people said her sense of humour was silly and immature so she is now having a bash at writing children's fiction. The Reinvention of Lottie Brooks is her first novel.

Katie likes gin, rabbits, over-thinking things, the smell of launderettes and Monster Munch. She does not like losing at board games or writing about herself in the third person.
