Once I started reading The Amazing Edie Eckhart, I could not stop! This book is as funny and warm as a sausage roll. I loved it!

The funniest book I've read all year!

This book is inspiring, original, and full of funny anecdotes that any Jacqueline Wilson fan would undoubtedly adore.
Edie is a real and relatable character, flawed, fearless and funny, who just happens to have a disability. A hugely enjoyable read.
