Synopsis: Petunia Perry has decided to write her memoirs. She wants the world to know what it’s like to start secondary school with a best friend who stages one-person flash mobs in the canteen, a mother who over-shares at parents’ evenings and an unwelcome suitor who draws pictures of her as a unicorn. But it’s when she decides to start a band with a spoon-player and a lead-singer who’s a cat that things take a turn for the truly crazy…
200words (or less) review: Peri aka Petunia is in her wardrobe writing her memoirs. She’s 100% sure her best friend hates her and 93.5% sure that Cammy (said BF) was making a voodoo doll of Peri in Food Tech. Peri is also been accused of spoon theft. This just page 1 and I haven’t even gone beyond a few lines. Once Peri gets past her fact sheet to Epic Records and begins her memoirs there is no holding back.
As a narrator Peri is anything but one-dimensional. She’s comes crashing out of the page and into your room and you will hear everything she has to tell you. It’s kinda awesome, if you click. I had a great time reading Petunia Perry and the Curse of the Ugly Pigeon. Peri’s narration and her personality – great, plus I loved the chapter titles.
I think it you don’t get Peri then this book isn’t going to work for you because this book is Peri. The good thing is that all it takes is 1 page for you to know. So try it, because chances are you won’t want to leave the shop without taking Petunia Perry and the Curse of the Ugly Pigeon with you.
