Book Information: The little black book of information that every teenage girl should read.

Everybody knows high school can be tough.  There are days when your favourite teacher tells you off. When the person you have a crush on fails to notice you even exist. When your best friend behaves more like your worst enemy. And when even the C-grade netball team thinks you’d be a dead weight and have the defending skills of a stapler. So how do you get through it? Glad you asked.  From the author of The Girl Most Likely comes Find Your Tribe (and 9 other things I wish I’d known in high school), a practical, humorous, guide for girls to help them negotiate their teen years and beyond.

Laugh along with Rebecca as she reveals a few of her own less-than-shining-high-school-moments (like the time she accidentally set fire to her fake finger nails) but know that whether it’s finding your tribe, your classroom or your confidence, this little black book will be an invaluable guide.

Brief Bio: In 1993 Rebecca graduated from QUT with a Bachelor of Business (Communication) and started writing media releases, feature articles, speeches and newsletters for a living. After three years on magazines (and a dodgy Vegas wedding under her belt), Rebecca decided to have a go at writing her first novel. The Girl Most Likely is a comedy about a former travel writer who tries to put her life back together after secretly getting married in Vegas. The novel was published by UQP in March 2003 and spent 16 consecutive weeks in the Mary Ryan’s Top 10. AFI award-winning Australian actress Pia Miranda (Looking for Alibrandi, Garage Days, Secret Life of Us) has optioned the film rights with Icon Films and hopes to turn the book into a feature film.
Rebecca’s second novel, The Year Nick McGowan Came To Stay, is the prequel to The Girl Most Likely and was released in May 2006 in Australia and April 2008 in the US. It debuted as a stage play at Brisbane’s La Boite Theatre in May 2007. Rebecca’s third novel, Joel and Cat Set The Story Straight, was published in August 2007 and co-written with her good friend Nick Earls.
When she’s not writing novels, Rebecca writes a weekly column for The Sunday Mail newspaper and she gives motivational talks and runs writing workshops in schools and businesses across the country. Rebecca is an Ambassador of War Child Australia and The Pyjama Foundation.

Book Information: When you were 17, what did you think your life would be like when you hit 27?

At 17, Rachel Hill was the girl most likely to succeed. At 27, with an Honours degree and a career as a travel writer, she wonders if marriage is the only thing missing from this perfect trifecta. But one disastrous life decision changes everything. Suddenly Rachel is living back at home in her childhood bedroom – a room still celebrating 1987. She’s also working as a nanny for a surly six-year-old, proof reading erotic fiction and crucifying movie theme songs on the piano.

With Su-su-sudio in the cassette deck, Rachel tumbles head first into a quarter life crisis. As she revisits her idea of perfection, she finds that happiness is living the life you want to live, rather than the one you’re expected to.

Book Information:

Everyone knows that Joel and Cat hate each other. Then they end up partners in a writing assignment. By the second paragraph they’re in the thick of an all-out tandem story war.

Then Cat’s dad and Joel’s mum start dating, and they can finally agree on something – it’s got to stop. But will sparks fly between Joel and Cat for all the right reasons as they go about setting a few things straight?

A very funny, very clever “tandem” story but two of Australia’s favourite authors.
