Thirteen year old Sassy Wilde lives for music, and cares for the environment a lot. Then, recording company Y-Generation, manages to turn her world upside down. She gives up and gives her treasured guitar to charity. But then REAL disaster strikes, and everyone is counting on Sassy to help...will she sing, or not? Raising money for terrible earthquake in Pakistan by singing, which will always be her favourite hobbie....how can she resist?! Sassy Wilde is seriously sassy - she knows how to live up to her name.
This. Cover. Is. Absolutely. GORGEOUS! I love all the doodles on it, it's just so unique and eye-catching. It's crazy but somehow it all fits together!
I think this novel is brilliant, because it's about the environment and music. It will make children and teens more aware of global warming, and mixed with music....it's the perfect match, isn't it? All teenagers love music, so they're definitely going to listen to this story's message.
The characters are realistic and well thought about. Maggi is such a fantastic writer, and she has done brilliantly in getting into a teenagers head.
My favourite character has to be Sassy. She's so down to earth and she cares about the environment. I think she's a really cool character so she's definitely my favourite.
This novel gets a rating of 5/5 from me! I recommend it to readers aged 10+ - everyone will enjoy it. Maggi, you've done an amazing job on writing the Seriously Sassy books - I hope there are many more to come!
