Review of The extremely embarrassing life of Lottie Brooks by Amelie

The extremely embarrassing life of Lottie Brooks is a relatable funny book about an eleven and 3/4 year old girl starting secondary school. It is set in England 2021 and so is very new. As an 11 year old girl myself I know a lot about the subjects and I feel Katie Kirby has captured each problem and added humor to it. 

It really felt like a diary without writing a dear diary. It almost felt like she was talking to me. I loved it so much that my best friend read it as well  because I thought  that she would enjoy it too. I was devastated when I finished it because I loved the book so much that I wanted to continue reading it so much.

I especially loved the illustrations of stick figures, it really added to the diary feel. I liked that they were really detailed but simple enough for anyone to draw them. I also liked that they were humourous and felt like they represented what Lottie would draw. I found the whole book hilarious .

I can't wait till March 2022 when the sequel comes out. It will be interesting to see how Lottie and her new friend adapt to her best friend returning. I am curious about how that will change the dynamic between them. I hope Katie Kirby creates a book just as good as this one. This book gets a 9 out of 10 from me as there's always room for improvement.
