A cringey and forced diary-account of a girl trying to make friends at her new school. The language used had me rolling my eyes and I couldn't help but snort as the 'goodbye forever' text towards the end. For a thirteen year old girl, Tabitha was surely behaving like Karen from the first few series of Outnumbered. Also, the mother and daughter relationship was pitiful. Blogging about how terrible your daughter is for the whole wide world to read is the worst idea ever. And to think she hasn't se [...]

No offense to fans of this book, but i thought it was quite awful. The main character just seemed so ughh and way too desperate for attention. I immediately hated her. Not gonna finish this book. And i was only like 25 pages in.

This is the first book about thirteen year old Tabitha Baird who at the beginning of the story finds herself having to start at a new school and get used to living in her Gran's house with her mum and younger brother. Luckily Tabitha does it all with a smile. of the time!This was such a funny, light-hearted and entertaining read. Arabella Weir has created a fantastically irrepressible character who I enjoyed laughing along with, as well as seeing how she extricates herself from one muddle after [...]

'When 13-year-old Tab Baird starts at a new school, she's determined to be the coolest, most popular girl there - whatever it takes. She adjusts her school skirt so it's just the right length. She has enough attitude to make it into the in-crowd But it's not easy being uber-cool. No one must find out that her mum, brother and her have moved into her gran's house, so she tries to persuade Gran to pose as a house-keeper. And if anyone discovers her mum's blog - about her teenage daughter - it'll b [...]

I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest reviewI will keep this short to avoid spoilersI just finished this this weekend and it was hilarious. I found Tabitha and her little brother, Luke, so weird and funny that this is a book you can't help but enjoy and, at times, laugh out loud - which means that this book is not bus- or train reading material, unless you like when people look at you funny.This book is definitely targeted towards a younger age group but I f [...]

I think every girl, regardless of whether they are now 13, or remember those years, will relate to this book quite well. Especially if they were a bit weird and awkward (cough)me(cough). Tabitha is an immensely likeable character, I found her very witty and quirky, even when she was being a real brat at her new school there was still humour there, and she was still a great character.The main thing that stood out for me about this book was the diversity. It was done well, which isn't something I [...]

I was having a particularly awful day and needed something to cheer me up. The Rise and Rise of Tabitha Baird was the book to do it.Tab never really fitted in at her old school, so while she might not be thrilled about the circumstances leading to her mum, little brother and her moving in with Tab’s grandmother she wants to fit in at Heathside Academy. Things start out well, Tab makes friends but determined not to lose her status means she had to come up with more daring ideas.The Rise and Ris [...]

For tweens. A story told in diary-style about life through the eyes of a 13 year old British girl. It's an easy read and illustrates the thoughts a middle school-aged female very well. Most of the characters are spot on (with the teenaged exaggerations included), although the mother's obsession with her daughter's weight kind of diminished the story a little. By the end of it, mom moved on to other things and redeemed herself (maybe dad will in the next book). Overall, a decent read for fans of [...]

I won this book on First Reads Giveaway.My 15 yr old granddaughter started to read this book virtually as soon as it dropped through my letterbox. Although I haven't had the chance to read it myself yet, I am basing this review on what my granddaughter had to say. She said that she loved it and it was the best book that she had read for a long time. She is now wanting the next book!

This wasn't my thing - I like middle grade books, but I think even at the time I was the right age for this, it probably wouldn't have been my thing. But I'm sure it will work better for others - I feel like it would work for Jacqueline Wilson fans and Louise Rennison fans.

This book was really really good! It made me laugh and I can certainly say I could relate to some of the characters in the book! Can't wait to read the next book!!!
