Spotlight – The It Girl by Katy Birchall

The It Girl

I am so excited!  Yesterday, 7th May 2015, marked the release day of the hilarious The It Girl by debut author Katy Birchall!

I first heard about this book at the Electric Monkey Blogger Day back in February 2015 where Katy did a fantastic reading with her lovely editor Lindsey and they had us all in fits of laughter!

I have been wanting to read this book ever since and I finally have a copy thank to the wonderful Emily over at Egmont!! *screams in joys and stokes the book*.  Thank you Emily!  I cannot wait to read this!

Today I am over the moon to bring you a brilliant extract from the book, a Q&A from the book and a hilarious video from Katy!

And it doesn’t end there!

The lovely people at Egmont have asked me to run a giveaway so YOU could win 1 of 3 copies of The It Girl!

Just brilliant!

A huge thank you to Egmont for the kind permission and providing me with the extract and the three giveaway copies of the book!

So kick back, relax and enjoy a sneak peak into the world of Anna Huntley….The It Girl!

Don’t forget to enter the giveaway!

I also had a fab guest post from Katy Birchall about 10 things she has learnt since becoming an author – it’s hilarious – check it out here

The It Girl

Hilariously funny and deliciously romantic ‘clean teen’ fiction for teens. Perfect for fans of Geek Girl and Louise Rennison.

Everybody wants to be a famous It Girl. Don’t they?

Anna Huntley’s aims in life:

1) Must keep my two lovely new (and only) school friends by not doing anything in usual manner of socially inept dork and outcast.

2) Train Dog (my labrador) to high-five. This is probably the most ambitious life goal on this list.

3) Do not set the school’s Deputy Queen Bee mean girl’s hair on fire (again).

4) Work out whether 2) and 3) constitute being socially inept or outcastish.

5) Go to Africa and give out rice.

6) To hide in a cupboard FOR LIFE with Dog now Dad is engaged to one of the most famous actresses EVER, the paparazzi want to spash my face all over the papers and everyone in school (and The World) is soon to discover the level of my social ineptitude.

7) Is rice a bit done now? Maybe I can give out chocolate in Africa too. I do like chocolate. Must work out how to do it from the cupboard…

    Hi Michelle,
    Thank you for such a fab giveaway. I am really looking forward to reading this book, it reminds me of Attachments with the comical emails.
    Im keeping everything crossed.
