Improper Order by Deirdre Sullivan


Improper Order by Deirdre Sullivan

It's all most improper. Ciara has stopped eating her hair and is practically married to Syzmon. Even Ella has fallen for someone who is not a cat or a ferret. And Joel and Kevin are going for coffee after Mixed Martial Arts, but it isn't like a date or anything, but wouldn't it be great if it were? Eh - no, actually, that wouldn't be great at all. Can Prim defeat the evil Karen, find True Love (and cake) but without losing her best friend - and get to be a cruciverbalist? And how come the dog is called Wayne Rooney? 'Primrose Leary is a smart, funny and beautifully drawn character and her teen escapades will charm the socks off any Louise Rennison or Anna Carey fan' Sarah Webb, author of the Ask Amy Green series 'Deirdre Sullivan is my favorite Irish children's writer, and Primrose's second outing is just as funny, sad and convincing as her first. More, please!' Anna Carey, author of The Real Rebecca and Rebecca's Rules The sequel to Prim Improper (shortlisted for the Children's Book Ireland Bisto Award 2010-11) is just as funny, touching and brilliantly entertaining as its predecessor.
