I didn't like this book. The charactars are not well described and I didn't get to know them. It isn't funny. ( )

Bonny has to go to Charm school. She finds out that all the girls are snobs. She actualy thows pizza at Araminta. She only makes friends wth Toby the teaboy. She finds out that Mrs Opeline is kind to them but she is realy taking over their lives telling them what to do,wear and eat. At the end Bonnie is Miss Sparky( she takes care of light and sound ) ( )

Bonny (I had to check the name - it was a real memorable book) has to take a class at the local community centre while her mother brushes up on accounting skills. The only available class is Charm School. Charm School is full of vapid, pretty little girls who mince around and only know how to fight for the'Glistening Tiara'. Bonny is a tomboy who can't see any sense in this, manages to avoid it, and then destroy it.

According to the back cover, Anne Fine is an author who makes readers laugh. Not with this book. The set up is flimsy, the characters are flimsy, and the resolution is . . . flimsy. ( )

Bonny has no choice. If her mother is to keep her new job, Bonny must take a one-day course at Charm School. One day at Charm School turns out to be every bit as bad as Bonny had feared. The other girls are scratchy and self-obsessed, and will do anything to win the "glistering tiara".
