Lottie Biggs is NOT Tragic by Hayley Long

Published by Macmillan Children’s Books

This is the third book in the fab Lottie Biggs series but the first two books don’t have to be read in order to read this.

15 year old Lottie Biggs lives with her Mum in Cardiff; her Dad had moved away years before and Lottie’s college sister is situated far away from Cardiff.  Lottie has a best mate called Goose (she hates her real name Gail) and she has Gareth, (who she’s convinced she will marry in the next few years of her life).

She’s happy all of the time and never has any problems… until her Mum starts seeing a man called Stevie.  Lotties world is torn apart at this because her Mum really loves him but Lottie just can’t stick his daughter; Lois.  Shes an emo who only dresses in black, wears too much mascara and loves giving Lottie a bad time –  or so she thinks!

Later on, Lottie finds out that Lois’ Mum actually died when she was little.  Lottie’s made a bit of a mess of things, and needs to sort them out- but can she?

This is a fantastic book for about 11 to 17 year olds and I really recommend it…
I hope there’s another one, Hayley Long!
