Mandy has been picked on at school for as long as she can remember. That's why she is delighted when cheeky, daring, full-of-fun Tanya picks her as a friend.
Mum isn't happy - she thinks Tanya's a BAD GIRL and a bad influence. Mandy's sure Tanya can only get her out of trouble, not into it... or could she?
"Jacqueline Wilson writes with great skill and humour about the reasons and results of bullying... Very readable... Tanya and Mandy will remain in readers' minds long after they close the book. Nick Sharratt's illustrations capture the mood of the book, using some delightful details to show everyday scenes and fantasies"
