Does anyone ever really want to 'fall' in love? Knowing me I'll just trip over it and graze my knee on the gravel of humiliation.
Haylah Swinton is fairly confident she's brilliant at being a girl. She's an ace best friend, a loving daughter and an incredibly patient sister to her four-year-old total nutter of a brother, Noah. But she has a secret.
She wants to be a stand-up comedian, but she's pretty sure girls like her - big girls, girls who don't get all the boys, girls who a lot of people don't see - don't belong onstage.
That hasn't stopped her dreaming, though, and when the seemingly perfect opportunity to write routines for older, cooler, impossibly funny Leo arises...well, what's a girl to do? But is Leo quite as interested in helping Haylah as he says he is? Will Haylah ever find the courage to step into the spotlight herself? And when oh when will people stop telling her she's 'funny for a girl'?!

a winner from my two favourites!!
absolutely adored this book and this series. i have been struggling with a sudden early loss of my best friend dog, sadly i did not get her to the vet in time. and this has absolutely helped with comfort through this grief and the complicated feelings im left with.
this was like a warm hug.
family relationships, coming of age, and in a way i did not find irritating, considering i usually hate any books that go into teen angst. i was invested and was shouting out loud at times to tell her to smell the coffee! but she got there in the end and i loved it. trigger warning for some fatphobia in the beginning, which was normalised in the 90's but obviously now must be referenced for kids.
loved it. and eagerly awaiting what rebecca brings out next, very much recommended. and i will re read!
