An over-the-top and absolutely lightweight but additively readable account of a year in the life of Hattie Moore who has much to worry her. She wants to be a Hotness Goddess but is thwarted by the other components in her life - her missing father (she doesn’t really even know who he is), her irritating small brother, her unusual gran and a dog with a small but entertaining part to play in the plot. Also she doesn’t seem totally sure exactly what a Hotness Goddess is supposed to do…Not a priority purchase but many 12 and 13 year olds (girls only I think) will love it.
Year 8 up/ Age 12 up
