The first book in the Primrose Leary trilogy from the multi-awarding author of Tangleweed and Brine.
Primrose Leary has just started secondary school.
Likes: her pet rat, Roderick; her best friend, Joel; being a little bit different (but not in the weird different sense - she wouldn't like to be the only bald girl in her class or the only girl who always smelled of ham, or anything).
Dislikes: living with Fintan (her moustachioed dad); the boy-school that Joel's toddled off to without her; not having her mum around any more. Hilariously and cleverly written, Prim Improper is the debut novel from Deirdre Sullivan.
`Hilariously written, very clever and an original, addictive read.' - Mary Esther Judy, bookseller
`So original ... It had a sort of addictive quality to it - like you couldn't put it down!' Brid, 14
