AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'It really all started with The Pain. He officially came into my life exactly nine weeks and one day before our Year Ten Graduation Dance. And despite my very best efforts to wipe the day from my mind, I can still remember it clearly. It was a Friday. The thirteenth day of the month. Notice anything there? Maggie Butt is facing not only a stranger taking over her mother's life but her own as well, and she is not going to let that happen. But then there's the one-eyed snaggle-toothed cat, senior subject choices, the dream date and Cyber Boy, the geek in the library to contend with as well. Its going to be an interesting year.'

'Maggie Butt has just three goals for the new school year: make at least one friend, get an A for English and find a date for the Year Ten Dance. Sounds relatively straightforward, right? Life’s not quite that simple for the slightly delusional Maggie, as she lurches from major embarrassment to epic disappointment on a regular basis. But with enthusiastic support from her mother’s annoying new boyfriend (The Pain), Maggie begins to see the world from different perspectives. She has to deal with mean girls, tough teachers and an ugly, orphaned cat—amongst many other obstacles getting in the way of her ‘to do’ list. ...'
