Mud is a funny and touching story based on the author’s own adolescence, with strong themes of loss and grief, friendship and parental breakdown filtered through the lens of a 14-year-old-girl’s diary.

Mud

It’s 1979, and thirteen-year-old Lydia has no idea how she’ll cope when her dad announces that the family has to sell up and move onto a Thames sailing barge in Essex. With his girlfriend. And her three kids.

Between trying to keep her clothes dry in a leaky cabin, disastrous hair-dye attempts, awkward encounters with local boys, and coping with her suddenly enormous and troublesome family, Lydia fears she’ll sink rather than swim . . . At turns heartbreaking and uplifting, through Lydia’s innocent and perceptive voice we find out that while the mud may stick, the tide can turn – and in unexpected and joyful ways. Perfect for fans of Louise Rennison, Hilary McKay and Rae Earl
