Summary
"Funny and heartfelt. I loved it." Melina Marchetta You know those movies where teenagers have the summer of their lives? This summer is probably not going to be that. Here lies Maisie Martin, dead from embarrassment, aged sixteen. The last thing Maisie Martin thought she'd be doing this summer is entering a beauty pageant. Not when she's spent most of her life hiding her body from everyone. Not when her Dad is AWOL for Christmas and her best friend starts going out with the boy she's always loved. But Maisie's got something to prove. And she's not going to let anything or anyone - including herself - hold her back. SHORTLISTED FOR THE READINGS YOUNG ADULT BOOK PRIZE 2019 PRAISE FOR WHAT I LIKE ABOUT ME "Teens are gonna LOVE this book. Such a sweet coming of age tale." Clementine Ford, bestselling author of Fight Like a Girl "I wish I could have read this when I was fifteen - it would have changed everything." Claire Christian, author of Beautiful Mess "Heartfelt and unexpectedly deep under its sparkling exterior, this novel features an authentic teen voice, a diverse cast of genuinely likeable characters, a distinctly (and refreshingly) Australian ambience, and a charming protagonist." Readings "Coming of age in the new age requires fresh narratives in unsure times, and Guillaume chooses to uplift rather than shoot teenagers in a barrel. She teaches body positivity, support networks and shuns not talking about your problems. And that's laudable." Artshub (starred review)
