AUK ambassador and author, Sue Hampton, has written a sequel to her alopecia novel The Waterhouse Girl. Crazy Daise tells the story of 15 year old Rowan Figg who struggles when her hair begins to fall out.
But things begin to change for Rowan when she meets Daisy Waterhouse at an Alopecia UK support group.
Sue has written a short blog post to accompany the publication of Crazy Daise in which she explains:
"I created Rowan Figg, whose hair loss leaves her traumatised and almost helpless - knowing that eventually she'd find support through Alopecia UK, which exists to improve the lives of people like her. But Crazy Daise grows into a much wider, deeper story about accepting other differences and caring for the planet as well as each other".
Sue has just received her first 5 star review for Crazy Daise on Amazon:
"Couldn't put it down. It's a book that makes you think and feel. Wish I could have read it as a teenager - an inspiring story penned by an inspirational person. The book goes way beyond the effects of alopecia on an image-conscious teenager and appeals to anyone who's ever been through a traumatic life event, has had to shed preconceptions and prejudices, felt like an outside and discovered their true self and worth".
Crazy Daise is available for purchase now from Amazon, or if you purchase through Sue's website and get in touch with her, she will send a signed copy.
