What's New, Harper Drew?
Welcome to the totally hilarious and utterly daft life of Harper Drew and her VERY eccentric family – from her totally hair-obsessed would-be internet celebrity brother, Troy, to her Uncle Paul, who swears he’s making a film starring Leonardo DiCaprio (well, he’s got a red carpet at least).
It’s queen bee Maisie’s birthday party coming up, and the whole class is invited – but while Maisie is sometimes friendly to Harper, sometimes she says things which ‘make her teeth itch’; unkind things that make her feel about two inches tall. There’s a lot of pressure to get everything exactly right for Maisie’s big day, and Harper definitely doesn’t want to look like a weirdo. That’s easier said than done though, if her family’s big trip to France is anything to go by. How many families have a burning wig, a colony of bats, and 50 tins of chicken chasseur to deal with in the space of one holiday?
With the help of her real friends and her perfectly imperfect family, can Harper find the inner confidence she needs to stop trying to impress Maisie and just be herself?
This laugh-out-loud diary is perfect for fans looking for their next Diary of a Wimpy Kid or The Extremely Embarrassing Life of Lottie Brooks. Gorgeously expressive illustrations by Aleksei Bitskoff and some seriously surreal escapades make this a fabulously fun read about being true to yourself, ideal for readers aged 9+.
