Summary

It's 1996, summer is coming and 11-year-old Fiona Larson is determined to make this her best year yet....

The Fair is the only good thing that happens every year. And Fiona Larson is the only person in town who's never been.

She's pretended to go - but she's never been allowed. Because, before Fiona was even born, her sister died there. 

This year, everything will be different.

Fiona is about to turn 12 - older than her sister was. This summer, Fiona will save some money, make new friends and finally have some fun at the Fair.

But what she'll actually do is:

  • Find a mysterious bag in a bush
  • Spy on everyone
  • Lose her only friend
  • Make a lot of lists
  • Learn the truth about what happened at the Fair....

Fresh and hilarious, All the Fun of the Fair is a deeply poignant coming-of-age novel from sensational talent Caroline Hulse.
