Hit CBBC sitcom So Awkward is to get a scrapbook tie-in.

The comedy, which follows three socially awkward girls as they navigate the trials and tribulations of being teenagers, has so far run for three series, with a fourth on the way. The first series had over 6 million views on BBC iPlayer and the show has consistently featured in the top 10 requested programmes on the service ever since.

Publishing in June 2018 to coincide with Series 4 being broadcast, the So Awkward Scrapbook will chart the life of the three girls and their friends. The fun teen lifestyle survival guide will be 'written' by Lily, Martha, Jas and their school friends with some help from Mr Malone and Lily's mum.

The title will include exclusive, never-seen-before content as well as material from the new series, revealing new characters and storylines ahead of the launch of Series 4 on CBBC in Summer 2018.

The book will be written by series creator Julie Bower alongside series writer Anthony MacMurray.

Publisher Lisa Edwards says: "We knew that So Awkward was a huge hit among young teens and they would have an appetite to see and read more from their favourite characters. Our scrapbook is not only the perfect way to delve into the girls' world in even greater detail but it makes sense as something they would actually create with their friends. We hope it encourages readers to do the same."

Alan Marke from production company Channel X comments: "We're proud of everything that has been achieved for So Awkward so far. When the opportunity arose to develop the TV series in to a book, we were really excited by the prospect of expanding the brand. Fans of the TV series will now be able to explore the So Awkward world further, with some hilarious insights from their favourite characters. We hope the scrapbook will also introduce a new fan base to the TV series, which is due to return to CBBC this summer for a fourth series."

The Scrapbook will be published on the 28th June 2018. It is available to pre-order now.
