The Jam Doughnut That Ruined My Life Summary

A jam-fuelled week of disaster starts with a single doughnut!

Roman Garstang is obsessed with food - particularly Squidgy Splodge doughnuts - but things are not always as sugar-coated as they seem. Because of his Monday-morning jam doughnut, Roman's week takes a sticky turn.

By Friday he has been banned from eating for 24 hours, accidentally shoplifted, had a lift in a getaway van, styled his teacher's guinea pig with a blue Mohawk, started a riot...and barely managed a single doughnut. Who knew jam could be so deadly?

    An outdoor adventure trip is one thing, but can Roman Garstang survive a chicken nugget-only diet? Roman is all set for his class trip to Farm View outdoor survival centre. There are only three issues: 1. With Darren Gamble as his new BFF, how can Roman make friends with funny, cool girl Vanya? 2. Roman will be sharing a tent with Kevin, 'The Pukelear Missile', for three days. 3. Mum has prescribed a strict chicken nugget-only diet (seriously?!).

    Grandma has come to stay for the royal visit by Princess Lucy to launch her new badger charity, 'Badges for Badgers'. Which would be fine, if she hadn't knitted Roman the crummiest jumper (AKA 'crumper') on earth that he's forced to wear to school. His whole class is in a fundraising frenzy, led by fame-crazy Rosie Taylor who is convinced that organising a charity fashion show is bound to win her favour with the princess.

    The final audiobook in the hilarious and anarchic Roman Garstang Disaster series. Incredibly, unbelievably, Roman's cousin is marrying the cousin of Rosie Taylor (aka The Worst Person Who Ever Lived). Roman can't believe this (as Rosie says, 'How can we be in the same family? We're barely in the same species.'). Rosie's parents decide they should go along together and 'make a weekend of it'.

Jason is back at school to film his new reality TV show - Jason: Grooving on to the Next Chapter. He's got big plans, and he wants Roman and all the class to get in with the action.
