for review

Publication Date: June 12th, 2012


A must read novel for anyone requiring tips on how to control this bizarre species by (undiscovered) genius Katie Sutton - a fabulous, funny new teenage character who rivals Georgia Nicholson with her wit.

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 is acting completely out of character and totally out of control! For everyone's sake, Katie needs to use all her expertise to get rid of him - and quick!

Written in the diary viewpoint of Katie Sutton.  Kattie offers advice on how to "train" your parents, remember, it's been sooooooo long since they were kids, they can't remember what it's like!
This is a middle grade (young) book.  More for a girl than a boy. 
Katie is a likable character, full of life and fun, but some of her advice didn't work for me.  My mom, unfortunately, knows all the tricks.  Can't pull anything over her eyes!
I don't understand British humor, so I missed out on some of the funny stuff. 
I think this book will appeal to young girls, but probably not to boys.
