Girls at Sea by Sue Lawson

Black Dog Books, 2011. ISBN 9781742031729.
Girls at Sea is part 6 of an 8 book series. It does mention events from past books but readers don't need to
have read them to understand this as it is independent. We meet fun-loving Mickey and Skye and snooty Coco who are hosts of Girl's Stuff T.V. They are filming their show from a resort and Skye is excited as they head out on a whale watching trip as part of their filming. Readers will learn interesting facts about whales and will love it when Coco is highly embarrassed - everyone loves it when the 'evil' character gets what they deserve!
This is a short novel and while the text is mainly told through conversation, it is easy to read and follow.
Girls aged 7-11 will enjoy this story and I'm sure they will want to read the set and check out the adventures the girls get up to.
