Suzy P and the Trouble With Three

Suzy P 2

The sequel to Me, Suzy P.

Suzy’s off camping with her family and best mate Millie – yes, you heard right – camping!

As if being stuck in a caravan in rainy Wales for two whole weeks weren’t bad enough, to make matters worse, Mum’s best friend’s daughter, super-glam (and super-snooty) Isabella is coming too.When Millie starts spending all her time with Isabella, Suzy is devastated. Can her friendship with Millie survive when three is most definitely a crowd?

Me, Suzy P

I’m Suzy Puttock (yes, Puttock with a P), fourteen years old and a total disaster magnet.

My life’s full of ups and downs. My loved-up big sister Amber’s getting married and wants lime green bridesmaids’ dresses. I’m not happy about that.

But there’s this hot new guy, Zach, just started at my school. I am happy about that.

Only…I’ve had a boyfriend since forever, Danny. So now I’m all kinds of confused…

A hilarious tale of teenage Suzy Puttock trying to navigate the perils of school, families and boys.

    • Karen Saunders August 29, 2013 at 9:26 am #

      Hi Fleur, thank you so much. Yes, Suzy 2 will have mostly the same characters, although a few will disappear and some new ones will come along instead, just to keep it interesting. Our fab four – Suzy, Millie, Danny and Jamie – all feature though, worry not! x

  8. Julie August 15, 2013 at 3:54 pm #

    Hey there Karen! Just to say i have just finished reading your book me suzy p and I really enjoyed it!!! But while I was reading it the whole time through I thought it would make a great film or tv programme! Have you ever consider it?

    • Karen Saunders August 29, 2013 at 9:25 am #

      Thanks so much for your comments, I’m so glad you enjoyed it. I’d love it to be on screen (big or small) but it’s not up to me, sadly. It’s whether or not the production companies like it enough to consider it. Fingers crossed for the future though! Hope you enjoy Suzy 2 just as much, Karen x

  9. Fleur August 16, 2013 at 8:17 am #

    I think you should ask some directors to make it into a film ! 🙂

    • Karen Saunders August 29, 2013 at 9:24 am #

      I would LOVE it to be made into a film. So if you know any…stuff my book into their hands! x

  10. Macy August 18, 2013 at 8:36 pm #

    Wow! Your a far better writer than Jaqueline Wilson or Cathy Cassidy! I have read all of their books and was looking for a new author and your book is fabulous and better than any one I’ve ever read! I hope you make lots of books in the future! Pure brilliance! I love the way I can relate to your novel also! Thank you so much! You inspire me! Can’t wait for the sequel:Dx

    • Karen Saunders August 29, 2013 at 9:23 am #

      Macy, thank you so much and you’re so kind! I hope you enjoy Suzy 2 just as much. Karen x

    I LOVE SUZY P! Oh, and I think you should write more books for teens. You obviously have talent, so you should use it.
