BIGG SCHOOL: Double Drama

Lisa Williamson



Double Drama

The second book in the acclaimed Bigg School series! Each book follows a kid in Year 7 at the Henry Bigg Academy – the ups and downs of secondary school are shown with empathy, warmth and humour, illustrated with gorgeous doodles from master illustrator Jess Bradley (the Phoenix comic, A Day in the Life).

Life isn’t easy for Daniel Littleton – Mum’s poorly, Dad’s always working and his twin sisters drive him up the wall! At school he’s the only kid without the latest trainers or Xbox and his mates are starting to notice. 

Things look up when he gets a starring role in the school play – though if his football-mad mates find out, they’ll make his life a misery! But leading a double life is tricky and before long, Daniel’s lies start spinning out of control…
