Bonny has no choice. If her mother is to keep her new job, Bonny must take a one-day course at Charm School. One day at Charm School turns out to be every bit as bad as Bonny had feared. The other girls are scratchy and self-obsessed, and will do anything to win the "glistering tiara".
Anne Fine has won many awards for her children's novels, including the Whitbread Award, the Carnegie Medal, The Guardian Children's Fiction Award and The Smarties Prize.
