The Book That Made Me: David Almond 20/03/19
Secrets of a Teenage Heiress
Flick isn’t the least bit interested in the day-to-day running of her mum’s prestigious hotel – although she is very excited about the latest VIP guest, teen pop sensation Skylar Chase.
But just when she has the chance to hang out with Sky and her glamorous friends, she gets grounded. And technically, it wasn’t even her fault that the incident with the prince and the selfie stick ended in disaster.
So should Flick stay in with only her dog, Fritz, for company? Or sneak out and risk the consequences?
This first book in a new series about Flick’s life gives an interesting snapshot of celebrity culture and lives lived in the media spotlight. Overall, it offers engaging, entertaining escapism with a liberal helping of humour and some thoughtful observations about friendship, responsibility and human nature.
