Happy publication day to Clementine Florentine by Tasha Harrison!
An ingenious ‘reverse Parent Trap’, this illustrated comedy centres Clementine and her school nemesis Callum, who have to join forces to break their respective parents up - before they fall in lurrrve and Clementine and Callum end up as siblings! It’s extra high-pressure because they both have a talent for poetry, and are determined to be the best writer. But then an unlikely friendship with an ageing punk icon - along with her chatty pet parrot Viv - helps Clem to start seeing things differently.
Imagine a female Tom Gates, with a touch of a young Adrian Mole and the warmth of Jacqueline Wilson, and you’ve got Clementine Florentine!
