Being good hasn’t gotten her anywhere, so why not try being bad for a while? It certainly looks a lot more fun and what’s a few detentions here and there? But going bad is a slippery slope and soon things are starting to spiral out of control. Can Ella get things back on track? Or is she going to end up with egg on her face?

What the critics said

” A laugh-out-loud take on early teenage life by the stand-up comedian and author of My Best Friend and Other Enemies.”

 i News

“Heartwarming and humorous, Ella’s story wittily deals with everyday teenage angst – friendships, frenemies, clueless parents and, ultimately, doing the right thing.”


“This highly-relatable, funny read from comedienne and writer Catherine Wilkins is an excellent look at a young teen fitting in at school, and finding her own place at home, as well as working out which identity she’s going to carry through her teen years.”

K and O: Bonkers About Books (blog)
