Newport schoolgirl Beth Reeks is celebrating the publication of her first book.
The 17-year-old (who writes under her school nickname of Reekles) was signed up by publishing giant Random House for a three-book deal, after her writing got an enormous online readership.
Her first novel, 'The Kissing Booth', is out in paperback today.
She says she began writing because she was looking for something to read herself, and fed up with werewolves and fantasy - "I just wanted regular high school romance".
