The lives and loves of Lou Brown, Girl Out of Luck.
Poverty sucks. Dad's timing the family's showers and refusing to turn on the heating. Mum has arranged for Lou to get lifts to school with Drippy Dermot and his eccentric mother in the Van of Doom. And lentils seem to feature in EVERY SINGLE MEAL. Lou is still coming down from her brief moment of TV super-stardom and getting to grips with the fact that - hold the news - SHE HAS A BOYFRIEND, but with both parents out of work, life isn't all plain sailing. Throw in Hannah's obsession with the school prom, Dad's strange shed activity and Lav's brief flirtation with a modelling career, and suddenly training a dance troupe to swim underwater seems like a walk in the park.

"[...] a humorous and relatable teen read [...] I absolutely love Luurtsema's writing style: this read is full of humour, and if grinning to yourself at killer one-liners whilst reading on public transport is any measure of success, this one's definitely a winner in my eyes." * Life Of Pippa *
