‘Lots of fun and a really cool read!’ – Cathy Cassidy

Emily Sparkes thinks having your best friend move to Wales at the same time as your parents decide to have a new baby is probably more trauma than anyone should have to cope with. But things go from bad to worse when she’s paired with revolting Gross-Out Gavin for the school trip! Emily is determined to escape him, and when glamorous new girl Chloe Clarke turns up it seems her prayers might be answered.

Unfortunately, everyone has gone Chloe Clarke mad and Emily finds her ‘sworn enemy’ Zuzanna has had the same idea. Getting and keeping Chloe as a friend proves a lot more troublesome than Emily anticipated and leads her into a whole new set of disasters . . .

Emily Sparkes is amazingly funny. I thought it was hilarious when Emily named her new baby sister Yoda!

Cathy Cassidy, bestselling author of The Chocolate Box Girls series
I laughed and laughed at Emily Sparkes and the Friendship Fiasco! She's like a younger Georgia Nicolson.
Susie Day, author of Pea’s Book of Best Friends (Pea’s Book series)
I thought this was side-splittingly funny and very realistic. Emily Sparkes is someone I'd want to be friends with!

Lots to appeal to fans of Cathy Cassidy and Dork Diaries in this funny new series
The Bookseller
More satisfying than much junior chick-lit
The Observer
Once you start reading this book you won't be able to put it down. It's true to life and very funny. Emily Sparkes is everyone's dream best friend!
Alice, 12
This is a good read
Carousel
Utterly hilarious and utterly relatable, Ruth Fitzgerald just gets all of the awful problems associated with being eleven years old. Everything in Emily Sparkes's life is a crisis, and each crisis is funnier than the last. Bring on the next book!
Robin Stevens, author of Murder Most Unladylike (Wells and Wong Mysteries)
