An excerpt from Maryrose Wood's screamingly funny Why I Let My Hair Grow Out, on her site.
Also, I have been revising madly and doing this and that, and have failed to blog about some freaking awesome books I hope to blog about soon. So: more details on them later, but I love:
King Dork by Frank Portman
Beige by Cecil Castelluci
Elsewhere by Gabrielle Zevin
Magic's Child by Justine Larbalestier
Get thee to a bookshop or library and read these babies.
