With appeal to fans of "Geek Girl" and Louise Rennison, it was won as part of a hotly-contested auction, and the author has comedy writing credentials and journalistic experience. Ages: 11+. Reissue.
Katy Birchall is the exciting debut author of The It Girl. She also works at Country Life magazine where she is currently the Editorial, Travel, Social Media and Schools Assistant. Katy won the 2011 24/7 Theatre Festival Award for Most Promising New Writer. Her three pet Labradors are the loves of her life and she is mildly obsessed with Marvel comics, Jane Austen and World War II spy biographies. She currently lives in Brixton with her (apparently) much cooler and funnier housemate.
