Diary Of A Parent Trainer

Diary Of A Parent Trainer - blog post image

Katie is an expert on operating grown-ups. She knows exactly how to get the best out of them, so she decides to write a guide to help the world's long-suffering teenagers do the same. But then Katie's mum starts dating the awful Yellow Tie Man. Suddenly Mum's acting completely out of character and totally out of control.

My Thoughts

I picked this book because I was lucky enough to meet the author and she was such fun it made me believe her book would be great too and it didn't disappoint! It is a lovely read that I think will appeal to pre and early teens, particularly those who enjoy diary style novels.

Diary of a Parent Trainer pokes affectionate fun at parent's funny foibles through the eyes of thirteen year old Katie Sutton, The story is very well observed and extremely funny, then it catches you by surprise with its poignance, particularly around the issue of family life.
