In case you don't know already, the picture is of talented author Maggi Gibson. She's written a series of books, and they're brilliant!
"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? 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. " The Mile Long Bookshelf, 24th June 2010.

I asked Maggi how she came up with the idea of Seriously Sassy.
I wanted to write about a really feisty girl who cared about things, but who was also a lot of fun. I like to think I was a bit like that when I was a teenager. The plot ideas came once I got the idea for that character and her friends. I remember so clearly how confusing and difficult the whole boyfriend thing was for me when I was that age I wanted to make that part of the story. I kind of stole ideas from my own life, and from things that happened to my two daughters.
