Lottie Brooks Bundle

Summary

Lottie Brooks is in her first year of secondary school, and not be dramatic, but her life is ALREADY over.

She's too flat chested to wear a bra, she doesn't have glamorous swooshy hair and she is expected to start her new school without any friends!
Dive into the boxset of Lottie's first two books:

The Extremely Embarrassing Life of Lottie Brooks

Lottie is 11 ¾ and about to start secondary school- though she'd rather go into hibernation with her hamsters, Sir Barnaby Squeakington and Fuzzball the Third.
Join Lottie as she navigates the perils of growing up in her fantastically funny story of friendships, embarrassing moments and KitKat Chunkys.

The Catastrophic Friendship Fails of Lottie Brooks
Lottie's back for spring term, and ready to face anything. And also is determined to no longer be known as Cucumber Girl.
She plans to kick start the new term by impressing her mega-crush Daniel in the school musical as a singing crab. But as friendship woes take over her life, it looks like school isn't going to be as easy as she hoped.

Praise for Lottie Brooks

'As the mother of a ten year old hoodie gamer girl, it is a joy to see the screens off. No amount of coaxing about the utter joy of a book had worked before, but Katie has managed to capture what this group think and feel in a positive, gently parent-mocking, life-affirming fashion.' Becci, Amazon

'My daughter is 12 and I cannot get her to read. However, I bought her a copy of The Extremely Embarrassing Life of Lottie Brooks . . . and she's hooked!' - Vickles, Mumsnet

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.
