$17.00 Inc GST

The fourth book in this hilarious bestselling series full of friendship, family and first experiences from the creator of Hurrah for Gin.

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?!

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 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.
