Life of the Party is the story of Chloe, a teenager who lives with her mother and aloof father. She spends her spare time binge drinking with her friends, much to the disgust of Rob, a boy from school who fancies her. One particular drunken night, after an argument with her best friend Steph, Chloe manages to stagger home, but the next morning awakes to something much worse than a hangover! Life of the Party is part of the Shades 2.0 series, published by Ransom Publishing, a specialist publisher for reluctant and struggling readers. The Shades 2.0 books offer fast-paced, shorter stories (just 64pp each) for older readers who may find longer books too daunting, but who still want the excitement of a great story told with pace and style. Life of the Party is ideal for reluctant readers aged 12+ with a reading age of 9 - 10 years.
