Pea's Book of Best Friends

Meet eleven-year-old Pea and her definitely not ordinary life! When Pea’s dizzy but dazzling single mum becomes the super-selling author of the Mermaid Girls series, everything changes overnight. It’s time to leave their tiny flat in Tenby for a fancy house in London, and a whole new life! Pea likes the red front door, and the attic bedroom all to herself. She even likes her hideous school uniform, in a masochistic Malory Towers sort of way. But something is missing. There’s an empty chair beside her in every lesson, and no one seems to want to fill it. In the absence of volunteers, Pea is going to have to acquire a best friend…

    This book is really great. It follows the story of Pea, a girl who’s just moved all from Wales to London because of her mum’s job through her struggles to find not only a friend but a best friend. This book is really really funny.

  • Susie Day

    Susie Day grew up in Penarth, Wales, with a lisp and a really unfortunate first name.

    Her many careers have included guiding tourists, professional nappy-changing, teaching small people how many beans make five and taller people how to interrogate the beans from a post-structuralist perspective, and herding boarding school students – but she always wanted to be a writer. She firmly believes in the dictum “write what you know”, which is why this book is about cake, watching telly, and helpless romantic flailitude.

    Susie lives in Oxford, and is probably drinking a cup of tea right now (she usually has one around this time of day).

    Her first novel, BIG WOO!, was published in 2008: “I honestly don’t think I’ve ever laughed so hard while reading … very highly recommended” Chicklish.
