By (author) Mo Johnson
Three lifelong mates, dealing with girls, families, growing up and drifting apart. Will their friendship survive such momentous – and inevitable – change? When their English teacher sets an assignment to write a letter as Mr Darcy from Price and Prejudice, it gives Tom Sweeney the chance to prove that he is definitely not a boofhead. Getting inside a chick’s mind isn’t rocket science – he can ‘do the sensitive male thing’ with the best of them. To prove his point, he becomes an agony aunt for his mum’s new magazine, Pink. Using the pseudonym Carrie Edwards, he ropes his best mates, Casey and Ed, in to help execute his dastardly plan. But being Carrie Edwards is harder than it looks and the three amigos’ lives begin to spiral out of control. Has it all come to an end for the Boofheads? Mo Johnson has a strong, contemporary satirical voice. This title presents an accurate depiction of the mind and language of teenagers that both boys and girls will enjoy.
Mo Johnson was born in Glasgow, Scotland, but moved to Sydney in the early 1990s. She currently works as an English/Drama teacher at an all-boys high school. Her next book for Walker Books will be the picture book, Noah’s Garden.
