Synopsis

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.



'Funny, warm, and just so refreshing . . . I loved this sparkling debut." Carlie Sorosiak, bestselling author of I, Cosmo

Joanne O'Connell is the author of Beauty and the Bin. She is also a journalist whose inspiration sprang from a year-long column she wrote for the Guardian called 'Goodbye Supermarkets', during which she met food waste campaigners, such as Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and eco-chef Tom Hunt, and presented a short video about taking her children foraging on a Scottish Island. She has written for The Observer, The Times, The Daily Express, The Independent and various glossy magazines, and is the author of The Homemade Vegan. She occasionally appears on television and radio, including BBC Breakfast and Radio 4's Woman's Hour. She lives in the north west of England with her husband and two daughters, where she writes copy for food brands and teaches cookery in local schools.
