Artists Town (book one in The Artist Books series) is the new book by Emma Baird…

Set in the early 1990s, Artists Town is a heart-warming coming of age tale that explores friendship, first love, learning to be cool and navigating life’s challenges.

Fifteen-year-old Daisy has been dragged along on a family holiday to a small Scottish town against her will. But that’s what happens when you suddenly develop a chronic health condition. Your mum and dad take away your freedom.

Still, the holiday has its compensations. There’s Katrina, resident ‘cool’ girl who takes Daisy under her wing. And Katrina has a gorgeous, older cousin who sends smouldering looks in Daisy’s direction. Is this holiday about to change her life for the better?

The escape from London seems to have affected Daisy’s dad. He’s got madcap schemes in mind for how he’s going to invest in the town’s small businesses and improve them, but where is all the money for this coming from?

Daisy finds love, a close friendship and freedom in her new life but the secrets that lie buried there are about to surface, and their revelation will be explosive and life-changing.

Featuring relatable, engaging characters and situations, Artists Town will suit anyone who remembers growing up in the 1990s in the days before mobile phones and social media, anyone with a fondness for small-town life and those who like love stories with a twist.
