My Review: 
Sink or Swim:
This is a heart warming tale of an underdog who goes out into the world an achieves her dream of being a fashion photographer, whilst spiting a stuck up popular ‘mean girl’ on the way.I enjoyed this one as i like a good underdog tale, and reading about the inner workings of a fashion magazine was interesting too.
Big Red Bottomosity:
You have to love Georgia Nicolson books, i know i do! They are creative and funny and this short story was no exception! The only downside was that it was too short compared to some of the other stories.
Mum Never Did Learn To Knock: 
This story was very sad, but i enjoyed it as it contained  a hint of the paranormal. It was a good length but a little too sad for my likings.
Digger Number 5: 
I really enjoyed this one as i already have a love of Egyptian myths. the added hint of romance and the heroine were very interesting as well. this one was easily my favourite of the lot.
B.L.D:
I wasn’t a big fan of this story, it was a bit too sad for my liking and the parent of the protagonist seemed to me to be a bit irresponsible letting their grieving daughter sneak around all over the place! this story seemed to me to be a little unrealistic.
How to be a Star: 
I didn’t really like this one either as it was a little too young for me and a little too immature.
A Life Less Ordinary:
I didn’t like this one either as i have never been a fan of Rachel Riley, i tried reading on of the books once and found it too boring.
Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others: 
This book i really enjoyed, luckily as it was the longest one of the lot! It was funny and quirky and more suited to older teenagers. The plot of a popular boy crazed girl finding a boyfriend for her shy co-worker was great, and i was a big fan of the dramatic party scene towards the end.
