My Best Friend and Other Enemies


When Jessica’s best friend goes off with new-girl Amelia, Jessica is hurt but determined not to take it lying down. She has a plan, and a secret weapon – her felt-tips. The pen is mightier than the sword, after all, and having a sense of humour wins Jessica far more friends than she loses.

A funny, wise story that will touch a nerve with everyone who reads it from author and stand-up comedian, Catherine Wilkins.

Take a look inside

“Catherine Wilkins’ funny but wise story about the ups and downs of friendship is sure to touch a nerve and win plenty of sympathy votes … Wilkins’ warm, witty and perceptively honest story is guaranteed to charm and inspire.”

“This is a hilarious look at pre-teen friendships, which carries a positive and sensitive message about relationships. The contrasting characters of Jessica and Amelia are well depicted and Jessica is a likeable character who will appeal to the reader. Humorous and acutely observed, I really enjoyed this realistic book with its feisty heroine.”

“This book is hilarious!”

– Harry Hill

“I totally loved My Best Friend and Other Enemies – brilliantly funny and painfully true.”
