in Suzy P and the Trouble with Three, Suzy Puttock and her great chum Millie are reluctant participants in a multi-family camping holiday. Danny and Jamie, their respective boyfriends, aren't coming but promise to keep in touch constantly to make the whole thing seem much more bearable.
But they haven't counted on terrible mobile reception... frayed tempers... misunderstandings... rain... Not to mention Suzy's pregnant older sister. Or her obstreporous younger sister. And the challenges of a Talent Show.
What can possibly go wrong?
Karen Saunders' debut novel, Me, Suzy P was published to great reviews and won an immediate fan following amongst teen bloggers who compared the writing to such authors as Louise Rennison, Jacqueline Wilson, Cathy Cassidy, Cathy Hopkins and many more.
'HIGHLY entertaining romp of good-natured fun. Suzy is a wonderful, snarky, klutzy, lovable narrator and I absolutely flew through this book' - Winged Reviews
Karen is fast becoming recognised as one of the UK's foremost comic writers for teens, but alongside the comedy, reviewers and readers repeatedly refer to the authenticity of her characters and the ease with which they can identify with them - their hilarious highs and their dark lows.
Last year Karen appeared at the Edinburgh International Book Festival and the Bath Children's Literature Festival and schools and libraries where she had her audiences laughing along with her as she revealed that Suzy is not-so-very loosely based on her own exploits.
If you've had any experiences you'd be prepared to 'lend' Karen for the third Suzy Puttock novel - Karen's working on it right now and would love to hear from you. Visit her website here.
