The Laugh Out Loud Book Awards, known as The Lollies, celebrate the funniest children’s books. Created in 2016 and expanded in 2023 with additional Poetry, Non-Fiction and Teen awards, the Lollies find the best and funniest children’s books in the UK and Ireland and are voted for by children.
When Aideen agrees to help ambitious class swot Maebh Kowalska deal with her crazy workload, she doesn't expect to end up reluctantly pushing Maebh down the stairs. With this, Aideen becomes the school 'fixer': any problem a student has, Aideen will sort it out, from stealing confiscated mobiles to breaking into parties. All she asks for is a favour in return. But Aideen's own life is a mess - her mam's drinking again, her BFF Holly is avoiding her and she's skipping school. Spending more time with the uptight (but annoyingly cute) Maebh and chatterbox Kavi, Aideen starts to wonder: can every problem be solved?
