Reprint. Originally published: 2005.

According to Mum, it was only brainless films stars who got married these days.

It certainly wasn't something to be considered before a woman hit her thirties, and even then it was a pretty risky idea.

Half way through a school-friend's funeral, 14-year-old Elin has an epiphany.

Life's too short to waste on school - she wants to get married!

Using her GCSE syllabus as a model, Elin embarks on a covert operation to be married by the time she's 16 - a quest that will take her from the Arctic Circle to the wilds of Southern Ireland.

As she researches sex, ways of becoming a 'Woman of Maturity' and how to analyse men using Microsoft Excel, she discovers that transforming from 'A' grade student into 'A' grade wife is tough - particularly when everyone thinks she's going mad.

But Elin's not the sort of girl to be put off - even when the guy she picks up on the Internet turns out to be anything but Mr Right.
