Electra's family is falling apart. Her dad's moving out, her mum's given in to her daytime TV addiction, and her little brother (aka The Little Runt) has just been caught shoplifting. Even the guinea-pig's gone mental. And all Electra can think about is whether green eyeliner compliments or clashes with blue eyes. Where can a girl turn in her hour of need? To her best friends, of course. Together, they think up a plan: persuading the class geek to stalk her dad seemed like a good idea at the time ...

Author Biography - Helen Bailey

Helen Bailey was born and brought up in Northumberland, a county she always regarded as home. Barely into her teens, Helen invested her pocket money in buying a copy of The Writers' and Artists' Yearbook and spent the next few years sending short stories and poems to anyone she could think of. Much to her surprise, she sometimes found herself in print. After a degree in science, Helen worked in the media, running a successful London-based character licensing agency handling internationally renowned properties such as Snoopy, Felicity Wishes, Dilbert and Zorro. Helen died in 2016, leaving behind a significant body of work. She is best known for her Electra Brown series, of which the first is 'Life in the Shallow End'.
