Mad, Rich and Famous
By Sophie Parkin
‘In the hall there were huge paintings encased in ornate gold frames of some of the ugliest people in fancy dress I’d ever seen, a magnifique staircase…it dawned on me and Bea that what we’d thought was a museum was in fact their idea of a home….’
In the first of the Lily saga our plucky heroine was sent off to summer camp by her chaotic divorced parents – and it is there that she met Blake. Now he has invited her to stay at his “estate” in Norfolk. Is it a council estate, she wonders? No, it turns out, it isn’t.
Lily has invited best friend Bea along to keep her company. But she soon finds out that best friends and boyfriends don’t always mix. Lily and Bea, two very London girls, must navigate the bizarre behaviour of posh people together…
This second instalment of Sophie Parkin’s The Life and Loves of Lily series keeps the pages turning, with Lily’s engaging personality and hilarious turn of phrase a delight for teenage and adult readers alike. Perfect for readers of Jacqueline Wilson and Louise Rennie.
