“Properly interesting – a teen novel about creativity, confidence and upcycling clothes. About time!” – Dawn French Screw waiting for life to hand me a fairytale… I’m gonna earn it! Kat is broke. Bullied by ‘mean girls’, blanked by her cool boy crush, and trapped between her warring parents, she has one escape: to sew. From scraps and cast-offs, she creates gorgeous designs she models for her mates down their dingy backstreet. But when her parents can’t afford the heating bills, dare Kat sew her own gown for the Winter Wonderland Ball? Or will the haters rip her to shreds? The Swish is a funny, honest story of one girl’s attempt to transform herself through hard work, creative cheek and the flash of a needle. Turning rags to (kinda!) riches, can ‘alley Kat’ storm the catwalk – and rock the ball? Free to download from Friday the 28th of July until midnight on the 1st of August 2023!
