I am NOT going to Charm School.... But Bonny’s mother needs her to take a one-day class and Charm School is all there is.

The Bookseller

Kirkus Reviews, Starred

“Fine outdoes herself here.”
The Horn Book Magazine, Starred

“Completely absorbing.”
School Library Journal, Starred
"Anne Fine is an excellent writer with strong feelings where it really matters. Her latest novel tears into the whole tacky business of juvenile beauty pageants ... Facts as well as fur fly as the whole silly business is brought to its knees" Independent "Assured and lively ... A comical clarion call against the idea that girls should simply be decorative" The Sunday Times "This ultra-modern tale sparkles and crackles from page one to a dramatic finale" The Bookseller "All of Fine's usual pace and verve" TES

The Children's Laureate from 2001-2003, Anne is also very funny and young readers love her lack of hypocrisy about the family and her honesty about how people can behave. She lives in the North-East. 'One of the sharpest and most humorous observers of the human condition writing today for the young' School Librarian 'She is translated into 26 languages and has regularly won every major children's literary award in the land, including the Carnegie Medal twice and the Whitbread Children's Novel award twice ... There are few more influential, or more unfailingly intelligent, authors at work' Scotsman 'A subversively wicked gift for exploring family tensions' Independent
