About this product
- DescriptionEver get the feeling your life would qualify for National Disaster Relief? Say hello to Erin Costello. Erin's pretty much your average teenage girl ...except that her mother has all the maternal instincts of a black widow spider, and her dad is out of work and completely clueless. That's probably why they're divorced. Not that anyone except Erin seems to care. Certainly t Erin's sucky little brother Ben, who's too busy making money, or her best friend, Rami, who is turning into a fanatical environmental activist - with the emphasis on mental. And definitely t Creepazoid - Erin's mum's new boyfriend - who may or may t be a drug-dealing pervert disguised as a mild-mannered PE teacher! It's an eventful year for Erin Costello, but is her imagination running wild?
- Author BiographyRowena Mohr grew up in rural Queensland. While her brothers and sisters were out milking cows and driving tractors, Rowena stayed inside and read, or acted out her own stories in the bush surrounding the house. She successfully avoided becoming a writer for many years, working as an actor on TV shows such as 'Carson's Law' and 'Neighbours'. Eventually she went back to uni and began writing stories for children and young adults inspired by her own remembered experiences of how simultaneously awful and wonderful being a teenager really is. She now works as a theatrical agent, representing 270 performers aged between four and fifty. Rowena lives in Northcote, Melbourne. My Life and Other Catastrophes is her first novel for teenagers.
