Red Dirt Diary
Blue Weston′s life is spiralling out of control.
Her parents are sending her to boarding school next year.
Her mad twin brothers are building pig chariots in the back shed.
Her best friend has been abducted by zombies and replaced with a boy-crazy tween.
And then there′s the drought that′s showing no signs of ending soon ...
It′s New Year′s Day, and Blue has resolved to keep a diary of the year′s events. It will be another hard year of dust storms and drought on her family′s farm -- with the odd leech attack and bagpipe-loving pig thrown in for good measure!
Red Dirt Diary is the hilarious tale of eleven-year-old tomboy Blue Weston, who lives with her family on a property outside Dubbo. Illustrated with black-and-white diary doodles throughout, it′s the perfect book for fans of Robin Klein′s Penny Pollard series and of Louise Rennison′s Georgia Nicolson series.
This is one of the best diary books i have ever read! It is filled with lots of laughs, and some very clever detailed illustrations. This book was being told by blue, an ordinary girl's point of view and how she tell's the story makes you reflect on alot of things, and i can totally relate to the story living in the country side. The books descriptive words makes it sound like you were actually there, in the book. I recommend it to everyone, but mostly older children.
I really really loved this book. It is interesting and very funny! Here is a bit about it; their family is in the middle of a drought and her Mum and Dad are sending her to boarding school next year. She has these mad twin brothers Was and Fez that always annoy her! My favourite character in the book it is Blue, she is funny and it feels like she is talking to you
I recommend this to a girl or boy aged 9-12.
I really hope you enjoy it!
