The Chronicles of Narmo by Caitlin Moran

Sixteen-year-old Caitlin Moran is already impressing the big name authors.

Terry Pratchett thinks she is wonderful and so will you after you have read her book!

Inspired by her own childhood and written when she was just 15, Caitlin tells the story of Morag Narmo who doesn’t really want to go to school anymore. She and her siblings would rather feed their heads into the waste-disposal unit than “do the academical’’.

So they are all stunned when their parents whisk them out of school and embark on a home-schooling experiment, but with five children, two unruly pets and some extremely eccentric attitudes, the educational experiment soon descends into chaos!
