Becoming Bindy Mackenzie by Jaclyn Moriarty
Bindy Mackenzie is the smartest - and kindest - girl at Ashbury High. She likes to share her knowledge of common teen anxieties and offers lunchtime advisory sessions in a relaxed setting (the locker room). But when Bindy discovers that, despite all her hard work, nobody likes her, benevolent Bindy is banished - ruthless Bindy is about to be unleashed.
Bindy records every moment of her new rebellious life in a project - from The Philosophical Musings of B. Mackenzie to extracts from her essays. But her scrapbook is also the key to a bizarre mystery - with Bindy herself at the centre. Only her friends can help her now. If only she had some.
Becoming Bindy Mackenzie is the original sequel to Feeling Sorry for Celia and Finding Cassie Crazy. As ever, Jaclyn's writing is funny and scary, happy and sad and always fabulously feel-good!
