Secondary school’s a whole new world!
Alice and Megan are starting secondary school; with new subjects, new teachers and new friends, it’s going to take a bit of getting used to. And when Megan meets Marcus, the class bad-boy who’s always in trouble, but doesn’t seem to care, things really start to get complicated.
At least she has Home Ec class with Alice – the worst cook in the school – to look forward to, so school’s not all bad!
Alice’s ill-fated Home Economics adventures will have readers in stitches.
