Review quote

'Bad Hair Days not only gives the reader an insight into how it would feel to deal with the emotional impact of hair loss, but it is a story about the importance of family and friendship all tied up in a great mystery story. It is a perfect read for teens.' Stressy Mummy Blogger

'Bad Hair Days is a wonderful read but more than that its inspiring. Its main character, 14 year old Mallow, a revelation to all those who feel as if they don't fit in, that they too are different. Pettywitter Blogspot

Forster handles a potentially tricky real-life issue with sensitivity and explores in depth the emotional impact hair loss might have on a teenager. Many important issues are touched upon, including bullying, friendship and self-esteem, which are all wrapped up in the mystery of who's behind the texts, which keeps the pages turning... Overall, an exciting mystery with a difference for older primary-aged children. Primary Times
