Persephone Pinchgut is back to tell you more about her exciting life and adventures. Get up close and personal with twin Perse in her fabulous new diary.

It's the summer and no one needs a vacation more than Perse. From the moment she takes off for Fiji, Perse is set for a fun and exciting vacation. But there’s just one catch. The twins' super annoying next door neighbor, Dill Pickleton, is going with them. With Gran looking after them and Dill tagging along, how will Perse and her sister, Portia, actually have fun?

In Perse's greatest adventure yet, she faces the perils of sailing the open seas, swimming with sharks (her greatest fear!), and a dreaded dance-off. Perse pens all her deepest secrets about popularity, fitting in, crushes, and lots more for you to read about.

A perfect read for 7+ readers and secret diary lovers.
