Laurie's home-made beauty recipes are no secret. The secret is that her eco-warrior family get their ingredients from the bin.
Laurie loves her family and she wants to join them in making the world a better place, one home-made bath bomb at a time. But right now, she doesn't want to be fishing her food out the bin. She just wants to go for a hot chocolate with her friends after school and be a normal kid.
So when a competition comes to Silverdale High looking for the next best 'Business with a difference', and the most popular girl in school, wants to team up to sell Laurie's lotions and potions, she can hardly believe her luck. But can she find success and popularity without losing sight of her true self?
Joanne O'Connell's Beauty and the Bin is a fresh and funny debut about friends, family, school and being a young eco-warrior.
