The second installment of the Primrose Leary trilogy from the multi-awarding author of Tangleweed and Brine.

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?

'Deirdre Sullivan is my favourite Irish children's writer, and Primrose's second outing is just as funny, sad and convincing as her first. More, please!' - Anna Carey, author

'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
