Social Squad

Social Squad

Summary

*The incredible new book from the author of A Different Sort of Normal!*

Izzy Johnston would really like two things in life:

1) At least ONE friend
2) A starring role in her favourite TV show, 'The Outsiders'

The world isn't an easy place for Izzy. Her brain is different from the other kids at school, and her mum is annoying (yes, most are, but Izzy's mum is REALLY annoying). Her dad isn't around much.

So at least one friend and a part on 'The Outsiders' (even the part of best-friend-turned-sassy-sidekick) would be really helpful and make everything a bit better.

Then one day, Izzy gets a call that changes her life.

She is going to take part in trying out a new amazing social media app - Social Squad. It's sort of a competition, and the winning prize is . . . a part on The Outsiders.

But things immediately go wrong for Izzy when on her first day at Social Squad when she mistakes the toilet for an office, and forgets how to speak in front of the Big Boss.

Then Izzy meets Morgan. They share a flapjack and crisps and start to chat. And Izzy realises that maybe - just maybe - life is going to give her something amazing . . .
