Libby, 12, publishes second book

Book cover from At Sixes and Sevens by Libby Rees

A 12-year-old girl has published her second self-help book for children.

Libby Rees, Dorset, has written a guide to starting secondary school after the success of her first book on coping with divorce.

A thousand copies of At Sixes And Sevens have been published to help raise funds for Save the Children.

Libby said: "I was going from year six to year seven and I decided it was quite a major event and quite a lot of people might be worried about it."

Libby, from Christchurch, was nine when she wrote Help, Hope and Happiness, giving ideas she had used to cope when her parents separated.

Since publishing her book, Libby has received awards including one from Princess Anne "for inspiring dramatic change in the lives of children".
