The pink jumper was practically glowing in my grey bedroom.
It was like a tiny bit of Dorothy's Oz in boring old black-and-white Kansas.
Pink was for girls. Ava Simpson is trying on a whole new image. Stripping the black dye from her hair, she heads off to the Billy Hughes School for Academic Excellence, leaving her uber-cool girlfriend, Chloe, behind. Ava is quickly taken under the wing of perky, popular Alexis who insists that: a) she's a perfect match for handsome Ethan; and b) she absolutely must audition for the school musical. But while she's busy trying to fit in - with Chloe, with Alexis and her Pastel friends, even with the misfits in the stage crew - Ava fails to notice that her shiny reinvented life is far more fragile than she imagined. 'Pink is laugh-out-loud and cringe-in-corners funny.
An ouch-sharp, thoroughly modern comedy.' Simmone Howell 'I laughed, I cried and I occasionally burst into song.' Justine Larbalestier 'Fun, razor-sharp, and moving, Pink - like love - is a many-splendoured thing.' John Green
