That is a brilliant book - it's so funny!
And Im of the opinion that anything that makes a child read, considering the falling standards in literacy, can only be a good thing.

as long as they dont aspire to it then it'll be ok!

They look really funny, having read the reviews may order them for my DD.

Well the synopsis makes me smirk. And I probably would put my judgy pants on for anyone who actually bought it for their daughter...

But have to agree, if it gets a reluctant reader to pick up a book (especially one whose life isn't all ponies and private school), then it's done its job!

Its about a girl from a slum estate who has aspirations to do her A levels and manages ..... what did the OP think it would be about?

I know its not what I think - I read the synopsis and it looks better than I imagined - its the title that shocked me.
