Blurb (from Goodreads):
Millie Hardiman is a thirteen year old from Bognor Regis, with a wild imagination, who dreams of becoming a writer.

When Millie’s scriptwriter Dad, Barry, has writer’s block, Millie becomes his muse for the daytime television soap, Double Top.

After her success on Double Top, Millie creates a Sci-Fi, teen drama, The Adventures of Martian Girl.

Millie falls in love for the first time with Wolf Van Der Beek, an arrogant, South African child actor.

This is a story about friendship, first love and growing up.

My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

Millie Hardiman and the Red Parrot Fever “She told me that Chunk had been left in the cellar for two weeks, living off dog food.”

This was an entertaining middle-grade story, about a girl who liked to make up far-fetched stories.

Millie was a really amusing character, and the stories she created were so funny! I also found it amusing how she called her parents by their Christian names, and tried to do the same with her teachers.

The storyline in this was about Millie making up bizarre stories, and trying to help her dad with his script writing for a TV show which he wrote for. We also had Millie making up stories for other people which got her in trouble, and a storyline about Millie writing her own TV show.

The ending to this was pretty good, and this was an enjoyable middle-grade story overall.
