Front Cover
Epigram Books, 2014 - Young Adult Fiction - 103 pages
Dear Diary,

Life in New York was looking great. Summer vacation was around the corner, and I’d FINALLY turned 13! Then Mom announced we’d be moving halfway around the world to Singapore, where she grew up.

Now it feels like my life is SO over. I don’t know anyone here, my family’s totally weird and everything seems to go wrong at my new international school. How do I express myself when we have to wear UNIFORMS? How do I avoid the mean girls and keep cool around my crush? One thing’s for sure—I’m gonna figure this out!

Things aren’t easy for Rosie Smith. Peek into her diary for tales about her spider-obsessed little brother, EMBARRASSING episodes at school and making friends—and enemies—in her new home, Singapore. Narrated with honesty and charm, and peppered with humorous illustrations, Girl Overboard! is a fresh new series whose heroine you’ll find yourself rooting for.
