Collaborative Comedy with Perdita and Honor Cargill

About The Authors:

Perdita and Honor Cargill are a mother-and-daughter writing duo. Perdita is a former barrister and her daughter, Honor, is currently studying at Oxford. Honor herself has dipped her toe into the world of acting, giving them some unforgettable experiences to draw on for the ‘Waiting for Callback’ series.

About The Book:

Geek Girl meets Fame meets New Girl in this brilliantly funny new series! When Elektra is discovered by an acting agent, she imagines Oscar glory can’t be far away, but instead lurches from one cringe-worthy moment to the next! Just how many times can you be rejected for the part of ‘Dead Girl Number Three’ without losing hope? And who knew that actors were actually supposed to be multi-lingual, play seven instruments and be trained in a variety of circus skills? Off-stage things aren’t going well either – she’s fallen out with her best friend, remains firmly in the friend-zone with her crush and her parents are driving her crazy. One way or another, Elektra’s life is now spent waiting for the phone to ring – waiting for callback.

Praise for ‘Waiting For Callback’:

‘Funny, heart-warming and just properly brilliant.’ – Maximum Pop
‘Glows with warmth and wit.’ – Jenny McLachlan
‘A witty, feel-good romp of a book. Waiting For Callback is my new favourite teen read!’ – Emma Carroll
