Charm School Reviews

"Anne Fine is an excellent writer with strong feelings where it really matters. Her latest novel tears into the whole tacky business of juvenile beauty pageants . . . Facts as well as fur fly as the whole silly business is brought to its knees" * Independent *
"Assured and lively . . . A comical clarion call against the idea that girls should simply be decorative" * The Sunday Times *
"This ultra-modern tale sparkles and crackles from page one to a dramatic finale" * The Bookseller *
"All of Fine's usual pace and verve" * TES *
