Hey, hey, hey! Welcome back to the Big Kids Book Club.
It’s Thursday, so what should we talk about today? How about new books!
Today we look at a book that’s either just been released or soon to be hitting shelves, but either way they should be on your wish lists!
This week: Clementine Florentine by Tasha Harrison
Publisher: Uclan Publishing
Release Date: 06/01/2022
Meet Clementine Florentine – a talented poet with a strong passion for Custard Creams! In an ingenious reverse ‘Parent Trap’, Clementine and her school nemesis Callum, have to work together to break Clem’s dad and Callum’s mum up, before they fall ‘in lurrrvee’ and the two poetry rivals end up step brother and sister!
However, an unlikely friendship with ageing punk icon Lyn Ferno and her chatty pet parrot Viv helps Clem to start seeing things differently. But by then, is it too late to undo the damage she’s caused?
Imagine a female Tom Gates with a touch of a young Adrian Mole and the warmth of Jacqueline Wilson, and you’ve got Clementine Florentine rolled up in one.
