So far my favourite Pitcher book, I was amazed at how she was able to capture the character of Tess perfectly and realistically. I would not choose to read books about teen girls but automatically the character of Tess was likable and kind, with, for once, an understandable reason to her "silence" later on in the book, I read on and thoroughly enjoyed the story. The cleverness of the plot with the stories of the teachers at school who manipulated Tess, with her friends and her father was gripping and the outcome led me to rejoicing out loud. Through the story we saw Tess' growth and the end was a pride worthy moment (I won't spoil it!) I would definitely recommend it as a book as firstly, its a great depiction of secondary school and the struggles of a teenager in this age.

A classic Cathy Cassidy book- she writes with a great understanding of teens and engages her audience with amusing, sensitive and realistic story lines. This has a unique plot and is very addictive. I also love her own little chapter illustrations which go throughout and the characters she chooses have great stories to tell. I love your books Cathy and recommend them not only to teen girls but teen boys as well and parents of teenagers.
