LoveReading View on Urgent Message of Wowness

A funky novel, complete with funky title and funky cover from a bestselling author who is just brilliant at getting under the skin of that nearly teen market. It’s bursting with humour and charm despite the sometimes fraught friendships between family and friends.  We also rate another novel of hers highy and it’s called Bliss.

Urgent Message of Wowness Synopsis

Somebody stop the mayhem. Heather thinks everyone in her family comes from Planet Perfect. Everyone except her, that is. Then dad drops a bombshell, and the world turns upside down. Life's become surprising, exciting and just a little bit mad - but is this topsy-turvy new family somewhere Heather can fit in?
