Bonny is certainly not keen to spend a day at Charm School but her mother has to sit an exam and can't find a babysitter so she bites the bullet and heads off for a day of sheer agony.
As the delightfully nasty Charm School girls--prissy little tinkerbells with fluffy hair and glittery dancing shoes--rev up for the competition to win the glistering tiara of Miss Supreme Queen, the confused and self-conscious Bonny finds herself in the middle of an out-and-out, no-holds-barred, war. Anne Fine has never fought shy of digging for emotional truth in her work and here the author of Madame Doubtfire and Goggle-Eyes doesn't fail the reader for one second as she skilfully takes one day in the life of a group of little girls and gives an exquisite, achingly sad yet robustly comical insight into what makes us all tick. --Susan Harrison [via]
