Susie K likes science instead of netball and has the class goldfish for a best friend. But Susie's mum finds it hard to believe that she's happy that way. She's constantly trying to push Susie (with the best of intentions, of course!) to be something she's not. And the last thing Susie wants is to disappoint her mum. Susie's mum is thrilled to hear that Susie is going to Clementine's party... except she hasn't been invited yet.

So even though Susie would much rather stay home to read about endangered animals, she uses all her problem-solving skills to become the life of the party! In this fresh new series find out how Susie's unconventional problem-solving skills + Mum's optimistically high expectations = hilarious results.



Acclaimed author Shamini Flint is launching a new series aimed at reluctant middle year girls. Full of great illustrations and speech bubbles, this is a really fun and fast read.

Susie K is a bit dorky and she doesn’t make friends easily. She is blessed with a Mum who is the opposite and wants to push Susie to be just like her… this is never going to happen.

How Susie, the amazing problem solver, deals with her issues is the highlight of the series. In this first book she needs to get an invitation to the super popular Clementine’s birthday party, and you will love the inventive way that she approaches this problem!

Girls from ages 7-11 will love Susie K, and be awaiting her next problem to solve.
