Bad Influence cover

"So uplifting and powerful - so, so good." Cathy Cassidy
"Brave, honest, and heart-breakingly funny." Ben Miller
"A beautiful, relevant story of courage, strength, and not letting other people decide who you are." Kate Weston

Amelia Bright wants to be the best at everything. But when it comes to popularity, she is dead last. No matter what she tries, she can't shake her reputation as a maggoty nobody.

When she meets cute new boy Evan, Amelia wonders if he can help her lose her loser status. And in a moment of hope, she agrees to something she quickly regrets - something that goes viral at school. Now she's not just called "maggot", she's a "bad influence" - and worse. But Amelia's determined not to let one mistake define her...she's so much more than the image everyone sees online.

A powerfully real and funny new story from the rising queen of teen, about first kisses, learning to be true to yourself and how one click can last for ever...

Brave, honest, and heart-breakingly funny. * Ben Miller *
Loved uplifting and empowering - so, so good. * Cathy Cassidy *
Heart and humour in this important, empowering read * The Observer *
Winter hits just the right note...Wholesome and uplifting * Irish Times *
Tamsin's writing makes my heart wrench while simultaneously making my stomach hurt from laughing. Deftly weaving together a story about consent in the digital age, with all the sweet awkwardness of first kisses, first love and the realisation that true acceptance has to come from within. A bold, hilarious and necessary read. * Christine Pillainayagam, author of Ellie Pillai is Brown *
