All About Mia

Publisher: David Fickling Books

Review

Mia is a troubled 'middle child' whose veneer of confidence hides unspoken insecurities. For years, she has felt overshadowed: by her brainy, beautiful, practically perfect older sister, Grace, and by little sister, Audrey, destined for Olympic success in the swimming pool.

Although appearing super-confident and self-assured, Mia has been relying on booze and defiance to feel in control. When Grace drops a bombshell, it tips Mia over the edge - and she finds herself making mistakes that could cause her to lose everything she cares about.

Mia's comical, infuriating and touching story will draw you in and keep you hooked. Despite her character flaws, she is also funny, feisty, loyal and immensely likeable. Mia's vulnerability beneath a tough persona has an authenticity that will resonate with many teens, as they navigate the challenges of young adulthood.
