Teenage Book of the Month
Prim Improper by Deirdre Sullivan
Prim Improper is a hilarious yet touching novel for young teens.
Primrose Leary has just started secondary school. Her closest friends are her pet rat Roderick and Joel, the boy she has been friends with forever.
Her world has changed since her mum died. She’s
had to suffer the “feeling sorry for her” looks from her classmates
and teachers and even worse she now has to talk about her feelings to
Dr. call-me-Triona whom she describes as the queen of bland.
Primrose speaks directly to the reader giving a true
and accurate evaluation of life as seen through the eyes of a 13-year-old.
Prim Improper is the debut novel from Deirdre
Sullivan and has been shortlisted for the Bisto Book of the Year Award.
