About the Book

The hilarious and deeply moving 11+ debut from critically-acclaimed and bestselling adult author Alex Barclay, this might just be the funniest book ever to make you cry your eyes out…

Ellery Brown says NO to sadness. And yes to HER CRAZY NEW LIFE.

This is the diary of me, Ellery Brown, aged 16 and a half. I think I’m supposed to use it to record my feelings about my Mom, since she died.

So why do I keep thinking about who my dad might be, instead…? My best friend has narrowed it down to three authors my Mom knew. (She was an author too.) But they’re not just in different countries: they’re on different CONTINENTS. Which means fake IDs, passports, disguises, plane tickets, and somehow getting away from my self-obsessed grandmother.

One thing’s for sure: this year is going to be INTERESTING.
