Charming But Insane

“Girl, 15, charming but insane, huge bum, massive ears, seeks… Well. Seeks Ben Jones, but failing that, large Muslim-type burka garment to cover her deformities…”

Life can be awkward when your best friend is a goddess, you are a woeful underachiever and Ben Jones won’t even look your way. But that’s the situation Jess is in… so she needs to do something about it! Join Jess in this painfully funny, wonderfully spot-on account of her life. It reveals with technicolor precision the agony, ecstasy and total embarrassment of being a teenager in search of first love!
