Book Description

20 July 2001 Point
When Kelly arrives in Greece with Jade and Sarah, she knows she has done the right thing. The clifftop farmhouse is gorgeous, the sea and sun is fantastic and the freedom makes her dizzy. The days stretch out idyllically before the three girls, and the nights ..... It couldn't be more perfect, until a van arrives with five familiar lads in it.

Product Description

From the Author

Footloose was chosen by SUGAR mag as 'Best Holiday Read'
SUGAR (July 1999) said: It's a perfect holiday read, filled with sun, sand and saucy bits!' I wanted to write an upbeat summer book that you can sling in a beach bag and read in the sun. I had huge fun writing it which is always a good sign - if you don't enjoy writing it how can you expect people to enjoy reading it? A big theme for Footloose is the whole thing of finding out who you are and living that - not trying to be what someone else is or someone else wants. I got very involved with my characters. Jade is very gorgeous and energetic and predatory around boys. Sarah is quiet and mystical - she senses ghosts - and she's the one the holiday has the biggest effect on. Kelly is wrapped up in balancing what she needs against the demands of her relationship with the rather overpowering Mike: "I was feeling like I was in a meat grinder, you know? Everything with Mike had got very ... pressured. Like I didn't know what I really thought any more, or felt, or ... or anything.' Mike has 'real strong features, wonderful eyes, sexy teeth' and he's ... well, read it and find out! --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Cann Book 21 Feb 2004
This book is brilliant - have been to Greece and this is exactly what its like. My best mate and me love all Kate Cann's books but Footloose is both our faves. If you've ever been in love/lust or even just been to Greece you'll love this book! Everyone knows someone like Kelly, Jade or Sarah (the 3 main characters) and this book is perfect to bring on holiday!! I have read this book loads of times and I still haven't got bored of it, will be bringing it to Ibiza this year as well - you can't get bored because it's so modern and you know what Kelly is going through! Definetely buy this book, it's brilliant and you won't regret it!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun loving, summer chilling holiday romance! 14 July 2001
By A Customer
This book was Kate Cann's best book so far, and just by reading the 1st three pages, you can see why. Her tale of summer kisses and the ups and downs of a realtionship are unmatchable and the setting is described well, leaving you with un-deniable pangs of post-holiday blues. Kelly is a headstrong teen and her realtionship with Mike is continually on the rocks, when it comes to sex, there is no exception. Mike wants her to go on holiday with him and five mates...this isn't Kelly's idea of a holiday and she is elated when a friend offers her two weeks in the sun with her. She takes this offer..and when Mike turns up on their holiday home doorstep, she isn't particualrly happy.The book leaves a lot to the imagination and every page leaves you wanting more! I think that it suitable for anybody over the age of 13 as some of it's content could be considered unsuitable for the younger generation. Overall, it is everything that you could want from a summer romance and much much more!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great romantic novel for the summer! 19 July 2000
By A Customer
I thought this book was fantastic! It was so easy to get into and I had to tear myself away from reading it all in one night! It's a must for all us girls out there who love reading about relationships, friendships and exotic summer holidays! It was so easy to get into the character of Kelly and understand her thoughts and feelings. It also was great in the way you can completely relate to what she goes through with her boyfriend and friends....... The only thing I can critisize is the fact that the beginning was a bit to long and it didn't have much of a middle. Also, the ending wasn't how you'd expect, you kinda had to imagine what would happen between Kelly and Mike, but in a way that worked to an advantage. Altogether I find it a really good read and I recommend it to all girls aged 14 - 19.

5.0 out of 5 stars all i can say is, WOW! 5 May 2001
By A Customer
This book is the best book i have ever read in my entire life! Footloose was the 1st kate cann book i read and from that day on ive been adicted to kate cann and so far i havn't been dissapointed! All though ive never been 2 greece, this book made me feel like i was there and now i am saving up to go. As with most kate cann books this is a very realistic teen romance going through all the ups and downs of a typical teenage relationship ( i know, i am one!) ive read footloose twice already and i could read again and again. The best book ever! i LOVE it!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Is there going to be a follow up???????? 31 Dec 2000
By A Customer
What a brilliant book, I read this in a day whilst on my summer holiday in Florida, America. Made me think about my crush I had at that time. The love story is brilliant and I couldn't put it down. It's a great book for 13-17 year olds and sums up the perfect romance story, starts off fine, gets to hitting the rocks and then has an ok ending. This is the best book I have ever read in my life!!! When's the next one Kate??????

5.0 out of 5 stars Read how to become your own boss in your life 19 Jun 2000
Need a novel for the beach? Then don't look any further.If you're already hitting the discos and the bars in Greece, then reading this will be like deja vu. If you're a teenager grappling with horrendous emotions concerning love and relationships, then this covers it all and takes you on holiday at the same time. Do you ever feel swamped by your boyfriend/girlfriend? Wish you could say what you really feel without splitting up? Kelly gets fed-up following her boyfriend Mike's decisions. She does her own thing and goes on holiday with girlfriends in Greece. Kelly finds the strength she needs to be herself when she meets up with Mike again. Find out what she tells him - and what happens to their relationship. Most important, find out what the opposite sex really think of each other - besides sex! You won't stop turning the pages, I promise, and you'll learn a lot. I wish I'd had this to read as a teenager, it would have saved a lot of heartache.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Perfect Summer Read 30 July 2003
By A Customer
I am going on holiday in a few weeks time and I shall be taking this book with me along with Cann's other two similar books, escape and fiesta.
It is a brilliant summer read - a PERFECT summer read in fact. The descriptions of the farmhouse make you WISH it really existed...And if it does Ms Cann I want to go there!!
The characters seem so real, and the plot is entirely engrossing. It puts you in a really summery, romantic mood and is ideal for reading whilst lazing around on the beach on a nice hot day.
I rate this as one of my favourite books ever and recommend all teenage girls (and guys too!) go and buy this now!!
