Tammy's summer is going to be different and amazing. If she got the chance, she could do something great and surprise everyone. One of her resolutions is to spend more time at the stables – if only that moody Martin wasn't always there!
My name's Tammy and I'm 15 years old.
I've decided that this summer I am going to spend more time at the stables – sometimes I think the horses are the only ones who get what I'm all about. If only moody Martin wasn't always there, but I suppose I can put up with him. Just. He's not so bad really.
My other resolution is to do something that is not a) embarrassing or b) boring!
If Dad would let me have an actual, real LIFE instead of working in the shop, I just might surprise everyone. Even me.
'If your idea of a good time involves an unputdownable book and a duvet then we suggest you get your hands on any of the Journal series from O’Brien Press - and hit the sack! The three (so far) books are written in the form of diaries and are witty, funny and seriously good. And you can quote us on that'
'Light and chatty and written in journal form, [Blue Lavender Girl and Copper Girl] also reflect the concerns of the mid-teens'
'Journals is a series of clever and engaging books'
'The characters were very real and believable because they described very well. I would recommend this book to other readers because I found it exciting and interesting'. Maria Horgan, Age 13
