The Mega-Complicated Crushes of Lottie Brooks

The Mega-Complicated Crushes of Lottie Brooks

Summary

Lottie Brooks is BACK for more extremely embarrassing adventures as she goes on holiday and gets her very first boyfriend!

THINGS THAT ARE RUBBISH IN MY LIFE:
· Have the most disgusting little brother in the entire world
· Have to get braces when am on the brink of having my first kiss
· Mum is making cottage pie for dinner. VOM.

Finally summer has arrived and Lottie has BIG plans - scrolling through Instagram, dreaming about MEGA-crush Daniel and sunbathing by the pool on their family holiday to France.

Then Lottie meets new CRUSH Antoine. The language is a tiny bit of a barrier but does it matter when he's THAT good looking?

Readers LOVE Lottie Brooks:
My daughter couldn't put it down and read it in 2 days. Read at breakfast, walking downstairs, tea time, in the bath.
My 9-year-old daughter devoured it in two nights, and all I could hear from her was giggling and the occasional "Mum! Listen to this! This is SO me!".
My 12 year old reluctant reader took this book, read 100 pages in one night and proclaimed it 'the best book ever'
Katie has managed to capture the essence of what this group think and feel in a positive, life-affirming fashion.

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 Extremely Embarrassing Life 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.
