Description of this Book

A delightfully witty page-turner, brilliantly observed, with a sophisticated point to make about gender stereotypes - from internationally bestselling author Dyan Sheldon. From the writer of Confessions of A Teenage Drama Queen and My Worst Best Friend comes this hugely entertaining teen read, all about what it really means to be a girl. ZiZi likes to think of herself as a girly girl: her wardrobe is almost exclusively pink, her daily makeup routine can take upwards of an hour and she loves a bit of a flirt. Her best friend Loretta is very different: all of her clothes are black, she doesn't wear any makeup whatsoever and she doesn't like the way ZiZi dumbs herself down for boys - or her old-fashioned ideas about a woman's place . One day, they decide to make a bet. Can ZiZi stand looking like Loretta for longer than Loretta can bear dressing like ZiZi? As their summer unfolds - often hilariously - the pair are surprised to find they have a lot to learn from each other.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review [...] a sharp, sweet satire. [...] Sheldon has a brilliant ear for teenage diction, and makes comic yet convincing characters of each. [...] Here, as in her other novels, her skill lies in her ability to inhabit the teenage perspective, and to satirise without sneering. [...] gripping read. * The Daily Telegraph *
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 3 stars (out of 5)
