Crazy Daise

Sue Hampton

Read by Laura Coban

Rowan is fifteen, and likes what the mirror shows her. Life is messy but she's not the kind to talk about it. When her hair begins to fall out, her French granny, Sylvie, takes her to Paris clinics and salons, but her new chic style soon falls apart.

School resumes after the summer but Rowan can't face her friends or the boy she fancies – even before she loses the last hair on her head. But at an Alopecia UK support group, she meets Daisy Waterhouse. Passionate and unafraid, Daisy is an activist with ideas that challenge everything Rowan's always taken for granted. And her best friend is a boy called Flame who's more exciting than anything on any screen.

Soon Rowan finds herself caught up in much bigger dramas – because Crazy Daise is a liability and there's no stopping her.

A sequel to The Waterhouse Girl.
