Dear Diary, I'm in despair! My name's Tia, I'm fourteen and I'm in exile!

I'm stuck here in the remote countryside, left to the mercies of one very unfortunate mutt, a bunch of locals who think that wearing black is a sin, Bob (master of the armpit fart!) and Jackson – a guy who believes that just because he dances like a film star he's God!

Without Jenny – who is the shiniest, happiest girl in the world –life here would be unbearable.

Oh well, between the two of us I'm sure we'll manage to have some fun this summer!

Welcome to Tia's summer, which ends up being much more exciting than she imagined!

'It’s a sharp, clever page turner, ideal for the 12-going-on-16-year-old in your life'

Irish Independent

'Light and chatty and written in journal form, [Blue Lavender Girl and Copper Girl] also reflect the concerns of the mid-teens.'

The Sunday Independent

'If your idea of a good time involves an unputdownable book and a duvet then we suggest you get your hands on any of the Journal series from O’Brien Press - and hit the sack! The three (so far) books are written in the form of diaries and are witty, funny and seriously good. And you can quote us on that.'

KISS magazine

'Journals is a series of clever and engaging books'

'I would rate Blue Lavender Girl 10-out-of-10 as it is a wonderful story about how you can turn your life upside down in a good way when you think you are useless or dull, and it is funny at times as well as a bit emotional ... I would recommend this book

Reader Reviews

Blue Lavender Girl is an amazing book. It is about never judging a book by its cover, about how you can find friendship and love in the most unlikely of places and that it's never too late to change

This is a great book. It only took me a day to read, I just couldn't put it down. Five gold stars and a thumbs up from me
