Brilliantly warm, strangely wise, and absolutely laugh-out-loud funny, prepare to meet Haylah Swinton - a girl you'll never forget!

About the Author

When Rebecca was six, she precociously pronounced that she wanted to be 'an artist and a writer'. After a 'brief' detour from this career plan involving wanting to be Stephen Fry, a degree in philosophy and a dull office job, she fulfilled her dream in 2001 when she became a full time children's book illustrator. Ultimately proving, if nothing else, that once her mind is made up she really can't be bothered to change it. Since then she has become an award-winning and bestselling author of over 30 books for children, including her ongoing series Owl Diaries which has sold over 6 million copies worldwide. If she's not story-making Rebecca can be found reading, podcasting with her comedian best friend, drumming or singing in her band, making something (normally a mess), or just hanging out in sunny Suffolk with her gorgeous children, permanently frantic dog Frida and sarcastic cat Bernard.

Reviews

In Haylah Swinton, Rebecca Elliott has created a funny, vulnerable, relatable teenager . . . This book is jam-packed with heart and humour, meaning you'll fly through the pages to see what happens to Haylah. Featuring perfect female friendships and jam-packed with laugh-out-loud moments, this is a brilliant debut. * Askew & Holts *
Elliott writes teenagers well, refraining from trying to use any slang . . . and just focusing on the issues that seem to come up for all teenagers, no matter what new tech is added to their life. It's also so refreshing to read about a young woman with ambition and passion that is not, say, a vampire/werewolf love interest . . . [Haylah] is a realistic character I believe plenty of teenagers would identify with . . . I wish this book had been written when I was a teenager! * Funny Women *
