Meet Antigone 'Tig' Kingsley - your new BFF.

Antigone Kingsley (Tig) and her sister Ismene are invited to join their French cousin Amelie at a holiday camp in Switzerland.

Upon arriving at the camp, Tig is upset to find that she has been enrolled in a pottery course while her sister and cousin enjoy the exciting drama camp. Clearly, the events of last summer have not been forgotten or forgiven. To keep the peace, disappointed Tig reluctantly agrees. Over the course, Tig captures some hilarious moments on video of her classmates and uploads them to her social media channel. Elated that the views hit record likes, Tig swiftly discovers that the videos have been tampered with and the fallout has catastrophic consequences.

Will Tig's need for popularity jeopardise new friendships leading to a lonely path ahead? Or can Tig make amends with her classmates when facing a hiking challenge together? Does it really matter what others think if true friendship delights and accepts just being yourself?

Antigone Kingsley: Don't Judge Me by author Marina Magdalena, is the second book in this coming-of-age series that makes the perfect companion for middle grade girls going through the highs and lows of growing up. Filled with positive role models, healthy self-exploration, fruitful relationships, vulnerability and good humour, teens will love journeying with Tig as she faces the social pressures, spiralling emotions, burning desires and grand disappointments of teenage life! Tig is your relatable, imperfect, clumsy, hot-headed girl next door who learns to embrace who she is, solve problems and bring sparkle to the world.
