'Some people tread water all their lives. Not me - I'm gonna make a big splash. I could see myself living the good life, chasing the sun . . . feet up, glass in hand, no worries. Sweet. After a short stay at Her Majesty's pleasure, Maria Sweet, aka Sugar, is back. Her husband may have done a runner, taking their daughter with them, but at least she has a plan: get a job, get some cash and get the h*ll out of Brighton. And somewhere out there in the big bad world is Kim Lewis, who might just be the Love of Sugar's Life after all. Course, Sugar's not about to settle for a soul-sucking McJob, instead she's landed a stint as a model for local fashion designers Agnew & Bagshawe. But when she discovers they've used her not so much as a muse but to amuse, she's hell-bent on vengeance and that can only lead to chaos . . . Sugar is as defiant and outrageous as ever in this riotous sequel to Sugar Rush, Burchill's bestselling teen novel. Julie Burchill is famed for her controversial and acerbic journalism. She began her career at the New Musical Express when she was seventeen, later moving to The Face and the Sunday Times. She has written for many magazines and newspapers and now writes a weekly column in The Times.

SUGAR RUSH is her first novel for teenagers, and has been made into a critically and commercially acclaimed Channel 4 series. She is currently writing her second teen novel, guaranteed to be full of her trademark fresh, funny and sharp writing.
