 Just found these, a few of the chapter headings I did for the late Louise Rennison's YA novels 'Withering Tights' and 'A Midsummer Tight's Dream'. I never quite knew the brief or the schedule ...but the result was fab. If you have a chaotic, funny, life-loving young teen in your life, point them at these.

Only snag, six months later, the Big Wheel is being dismantled and will no longer be a landmark on Brigton seafront. OOps.
