• "Anne Fine is an excellent writer with strong feelings where it really matters. Her latest novel tears into the whole tacky business of juvenile beauty pageants . . . Facts as well as fur fly as the whole silly business is brought to its knees"

  • "Assured and lively . . . A comical clarion call against the idea that girls should simply be decorative"

    The Sunday Times
  • "This ultra-modern tale sparkles and crackles from page one to a dramatic finale"

    The Bookseller
  • "All of Fine's usual pace and verve"
