A fantastically funny wish fulfilment story for 8+

Young readers will find lots to relate to in this laugh-out-loud novel by bestselling author Beth Garrod


We couldn't help but fall in love with Nelly, a super relatable heroine who we know young readers will adore. This is funny middle grade fiction at its best.

~Emily

Secondary school is ninety-eight days away, which means I’m running out of time to break free from my totally embarrassing nickname Breaking News Nelly . . . Why did it have to be me who tripped playing netball and smashed a TV camera during the live report on our new sports hall opening?! I desperately need a relaunch, but it's hard when you have the worst luck in the world!

At least I have my best friends Clara and Jas. Even though nothing ever seems to go right for us, we’ve always been in it together. Like the time we wrote down our ultimate wishes but knew they wouldn’t come true . . . until they did!

Now more and more of our wishes are being granted, and we’re having the best time ever! Maybe my fortunes have changed and I have the chance to ditch my old identity and become Totally Cool Nelly. Surely absolutely nothing is about to go wrong . . .?

Beth Garrod is the author of YA, middle grade and graphic novels for children of all ages. She currently lives in east London.
