WHEN YOU HIT ROTHBOTTOM
Amelia Buckmore is a Nikki Rothbottom scholar living the #phdlife in 2029. Her funding to study the enigmatic creature that is Rothbottom, has been rejected. She's doing it anyway!
Join Buckmore recover an under-researched era in the aggressively adolescent period of the 21st Century where little-known vlogger, blogger Nikki Rothbottom tried join the cast of reality TV show ‘Kooked in Kensington’ and was rejected.

Buckmore says:
Rothbottom has a plan involving one of the Kensington elite, Richard Wardrobe, but she needs to get creative when his troublesome boyfriend, Boutaje, gets in the way. How far will Nikki go to be known, liked, loved?
