She might as well give up now and go into hibernation with her hamsters Sir Barnaby Squeakington and Fuzzball the Third.

Lottie navigates the many perils of growing up in this fantastically funny new illustrated series for a 9-12 audience, filled with friendship, embarrassing moments and plenty of lols.

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 ready to face anything. No more trying to impress mean girl Amber. And absolutely no more being nicknamed Cucumber Girl.

A lead role in the spring musical gives Lottie a chance to dazzle her mega-crush Daniel with her talent as a singing crab but it's not all singing and dancing at Kingswood High. Lottie's friendship with Molly and Jess seems to be falling apart no matter how hard she tries to keep her BFFs together.

Is Lottie on track for another epic friendship fail?

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.

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 eve

Lottie Brooks continues to navigate the many perils of growing up in this fantastically funny illustrated series for a 9-12 audience, filled with friendship, embarrassing moments and plenty of lols.

Woe is me. So much is wrong in my life...

Still look like a tomato
Am stuck indoors whilst my friends go bowling without me (rude)
My parents are leaving me to go out on a 'Date Night.' GROSS!

After a summer of meeting handsome French boys and getting a tiny bit sunburnt. OK, fine - a lot sunburnt, Lottie's heading off on a week-long residential school trip. A whole week away from embarrassing parents and Toby's tasty air biscuits!

But the trip soon turns into a total disaster. The other girls staying at the camp are MEGA-MEAN, best friend Jess is spending all her time with new girl Isha, and Lottie's diary gets stolen!

Who knew a school trip could cause so much DRAMA?!

#5 - The Completely Chaotic Christmas of Lottie Brooks
#5 - The Completely Chaotic Christmas of Lottie Brooks
From hilarious bestselling author, Katie Kirby, comes a brand-new Lottie Brooks story. This time it's CHRISTMAS!!!

Dear Santa,

For Christmas this year, I would like:

Two hundred KitKat chunkies (full-size not multipack)
Baby Bella to stop shouting 'BUM' in public spaces
A new brother who doesn't fart on me and call it a 'tasty air biscuit'
Antoine or Daniel (I can't decide!) to surprise me on Christmas Day with a grand romantic gesture
Cash (lots of it!)
A new diary (I'm really getting through them!)

Lots of love,

Lottie xxx

PS. Please could you put a chocolate orange instead of a real orange in my stocking this year?


Lottie Brooks LOVES Christmas - there's presents, all the KitKat Chunkys you can eat AND no school for two weeks! But this year, Christmas might be a bit more chaotic than usual. The whole Brooks family are visiting for the festive break (along with some surprise visitors . . .), there's a Secret Santa to organise, and the hammies won't stop attacking Gavin, the Elf on the Shelf!

Will Lottie survive the festivities intact or will she have to hide in the fort of shame until it's all over?

#6 - The Majorly Awkward BFF Dramas of Lottie Brooks
Lottie Brooks is BACK and she's as BRILLIANT as ever!

At long last Lottie and Daniel are an official couple and everything seems to be going brilliantly (except for Amber being increasingly mean and jealous, but what's new there?).

Meanwhile Toby's new year's resolution is to get a dog, and for once Lottie and him see eye to eye. Pot Noodle, the cockapoo, becomes the newest member of the Brooks family. He's VERY cute but also not toilet trained AT ALL.

Lottie soon finds having a new boyfriend and a new dog means she has little time for anyone else, leaving her best friends pretty upset. How is Lottie meant to keep everybody happy and stop Pot Noodle from pooing on the carpet?!
