ABOUT THIS BOOK

INDIE KIDD CAN'T wait to be a cool grown-up. Actually, she wants to be a cool grown-up right now. Lately Indie's mother has been acting weird and treating her like she's a little kid. Indie thinks it would be cool to get a job and live wherever she wants, just like Caitlin, who rents a room in their house. She even wants to hang out with Caitlin rather than her own friends, who aren't grown up enough to understand how she feels. Little does she know that trying to be a cool grown-up could get her into a whole heap of trouble.


From the Trade Paperback edition.

She lives in North London with her very Scottish husband, her daughter, a demented cat called Dizzy, and Biscuit, the button-obsessed hamster.
