Cursed by the initials BUM, saddled with woolly liberal-minded hippies for parents and an UNDYING love for the Proper Real-Time HOT Felix Winters, BLOSSOM UXLEY-MICHAELS is a seething mass of sexual frustration and political confusion. But when she s invited to work on the school radio, Blossom s convinced her status is about to rocket from Weirdo to Winner . . .

Longlisted for the UKLA Book Award and selected for  The Summer Reading Challenge Young Adult List where it was featured as one of the 10 ‘must reads’ for 14+


“A perfect fit for fans of Louise Rennison and Sue Limb who, in my eyes, are the Queens of Comedy.  It’s laugh-out-loud funny, clever and quirkier than on of Paloma Faith’s hats.”
