    It s Sadie s 15th birthday and, as you do on every birthday, she s got cards The small problem is that one of these cards comes from her Dad.See, Sadie doesn t know who her Dad is He s a sperm donor who her mum found on the internet, back in the dawn of the online world And now Sadie s got a card from him.I really loved this With a unique, and sympathetic point of view, Phillips tells the story of how Sadie discovers who her father is It s a bit Mamma Mia if Mamma Mia were set in Hackney and fea [...]

    Hilarious, quirky, light touching on a difficult subject Believable Filippino and Jewish references and great local colour.

    What drew my attention straight away about this book is the cover I love how it features Sadie and her blue streaked hair, it fits perfectly with the theme of the book and also Sadie herself.Dads, Geeks Blue Haired Freaks starts out with Sadie celebrating her birthday and opening a card off her Dad, someone she has never met Hiding the card from most of her family, her cousin Billy being one of the few people in the know about the card, Sadie sets out to find out who her Dad really is From the m [...]

    If I had to describe this book in one sentence this is what it would be a realistic teen version of Mama Mia without the music and sunshine LOL You can t help but feel a little sorry for Sadie at the beginning of the book Having to suffer with everyone at school knowing she was a test tube baby must have been hard to deal with When things get out of hand and Sadie receives a birthday card from her dad on her birthday, she knows she has to find the truth Everyone would want to know who their pare [...]

    This review was originally published at Fluttering ButterfliesI hadn t heard anything about Dads Geeks and Blue Haired Freaks by Ellie Phillips before it landed on my doorstep from the publisher I really like it when that happens, going into a book free from expectation And I really enjoyed this book I thought it was sweet and fun and a great story about identity and family I absolutely raced through this book and thoroughly enjoyed myself Especially everything hair related Sadie Nathanson gets [...]

    SJH (A Dream of Books)
    The premise of this book is interesting and tackled a subject that I hadn t really read about before On Sadie s fifteenth birthday she receives a card from her Dad An ordinary enough event except for the fact that Sadie doesn t know who her Dad is he was a sperm donor So she sets out to track him down with the help of her cousin and his friend Sperm donation isn t a topic that you usually see featured in teen fiction but I like the fact that the author Ellie Phillips wasn t afraid to write about [...]

    Review by MadisonAlthough getting a birthday card from your Dad on your birthday should be completely normal, for Sadie it is anything but You see, Sadie s Mum had artificial insemination via a sperm donor website Therefore, you can imagine how surprised Sadie is to receive this particular birthday card.At first Sadie thinks it is some kind of cruel joke, but then she starts wondering what it really would be like to meet her biological father The things that go through her mind are completely un [...]

    Egmont s new imprint Electric Monkey has provided me with a lot of interesting YA reads in the past few months While the prospect of a teen searching for her sperm donor dad might seem off putting, don t be thrown by the premise of this book While Sadie s search for her father serves as the framework for this story, it s ultimately about a teen trying to create her own identity and struggling to find her place in the world Her trials and tribulations, whether it be with family, friends, or bad h [...]

    WARNING if you have not read this book yet and dont want any spoilers then dont read this.Sadie had never met her dad she just knew that he was a sperm donor her mum found on a website She and a few of her friends searched through a few of her mums things to find something and when they did find a few things thats when it went all wrong.

    Umm 3.8Okay, this isn t wasn t that bad but it s really mainstream It was a nice quick read, for me And it ll be good if you haven t read a book on looking for your dad who was found off the internet It s nothing amazing though, or mind blowing of course Recommended for tweens.

    Quirky, deep and overall a good laugh Totally enjoyable with the right amount of seriousness The hair jargon was a little confusing, but I survived
