"My name is not actually Penny Dreadful. It is Penelope Jones. The 'Dreadful' bit is my dad's joke. But I do not see the funny side. Plus it is not even true that I am dreadful. It's just that sometimes my brilliant ideas don't work out completely brilliantly. Like, I didn't mean for my cousin to end up bald and covered in superglue, and I also didn't mean to steal our neighbour's dog and make him speak Russian. It is not my fault. I can't help it. I'm just a Magnet for Disaster"--Back cover

The queen of bloody everything by Joanna Nadin( Book )

"Have you ever wished for a different mother? Dido has ... Dido Sylvia Jones is six years and twenty-seven days old when she moves from a London squat to suburban Essex and promptly falls in love with Tom Trevelyan, the boy next door. It's not just Tom that Dido falls for, though: it's also his precocious sister, Harry, and their fastidious, controlling mother, Angela. Because Angela is everything that Edie--Dido's own mother--is not. The Trevelyans are exactly the kind of family Dido dreams of: normal. Dido wants to be normal more than anything else in the world. But it's the very thing that Edie can never be, as Dido and the Trevelyans will eventually learn the hard way. Like the very best families, Joanna Nadin's The Queen of Bloody Everything is funny, warm, tender and heartbreaking in equal measure. Part love story, it's ultimately about mothers and daughters: about realising, however long it takes, that family might be what you make it, but you can't change where you come from."--Publisher description
