Book Description

30 Jun 2006 Cosmo Girl/Piccadilly Love
A perfect teen holiday read, set on the
clubbers' paradise island.

"I wrapped my arms lightly around his waist - he felt warm and firm and I could feel his chest moving up and down beneath his white T-shirt. Being that close to him gave me a strange, tingling feeling in my stomach like a thousand butterflies trying to escape. And it felt good.
Weird maybe, but definitely good."

Sixteen-year-old Izzy is on holiday in Ibiza with her glamorous older sister, Ellie and Ellie's equally glamorous friends. When she attracts the attention of gorgeous DJ Rex, Izzy is flattered and pretends to be older than she is. But as their relationship deepens, her lies make life more difficult than she ever imagined. Will the truth strengthen their love, or tear it apart?

More About the Author

I was born in Hampshire but grew up in London where I still live today with my two children. I was originally a dancer who re-trained after a 'disco accident' in Ibiza to become a journalist - I've even won some awards, though I don't like to talk about them - ha! I've been a women's lifestyle writer for over fifteen years and am the former editor and acting editor of the fabulous J-17 magazine and Smash Hits respectively and have written for all the major glossies including Grazia, Company, Marie Claire and More, where I was their resident tell-it-like-it-is advice columnist - loads of fun! I've also written for NME, Loaded and Front magazine (I can be down with the lads too!).

During my journalistic career I've seen and done some amazing stuff, highlights include becoming a nun (for a day), rally racing with the late, great Colin McRae, bunjee jumping off a 350 ft bridge in designer heels, whiskey tasting for a week in Kentucky (don't remember much of that) and hanging out with all manor of A-list celebrities (er, Take That and Jordan, anyone?).

After I had my son I started to write novels (having children does strange things to a person) and had my first young adult novel, Ibiza Summer, published in 2004. My first adult novel (it is a little racy) Chelsea Wives was published in 2012, followed by Wicked Wives in 2013.

When I'm not writing, which isn't often, I like to hang upside down on a pole - I'm a qualified pole fitness instructor, and drink fancy wine (though not necessarily at the same time, that woud be dangerous). I adore creating exciting, three dimensional, glamorous and flawed characters against a backdrop of exotic locations. Revenge, sex, sin, glamour, excess, crime and intrigue is my speciality. My next novel, title to come, promises all the above and more!

Review

"Just the right amount of hedonism, glamour and beautiful sunsets to transport the reader ... a perfect holiday read." -- My Favourite Books blog

"An ideal holiday read." -- Mizz magazine

"A great summer beach book ... has everything a teen would want: glamour, love, and of course, heartbreak ... A life lesson for all teens, this chatty book explores the theme of pretending to be older and the trouble that can lead to. Young readers will identify with the book's main character whose lies lead her into heart-beatingly tough situations. Having written for teenage magazines and contributed to newspapers and websites, as well as being a mum herself, Anna-Louise is perfectly placed to understand teenage angst and the desire to put on years which later they'll be taking off!"
-- Janet Tansley, Liverpool Echo, August 2010 --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Read it! 1 Sep 2006
By Anja
Format:Paperback
I found the book really easy to get into, the characters were interesting from the start. A lot of books written for girls of my age group start with a paragraph introducing the main character, which gets a bit repetitive after a while. Ibiza Summer launches straight into a conversation Izzy's having with her sister and her sister's friends, it grabs your attention and makes you want to read on.

The book also covers teen issues like lack of self confidence. Izzy isn't confident about her looks or her body as she's always comparing herself to her sister. Rex makes her feel good about herself and restores some of that self confidence. Although I'm not like Izzy she reminded me sooo much of my friend with the confidence thing, and in the way that she took her relationship with this older guy so seriously and hid it from others.

Overall the book was set out really well which made it a really easy read. I can get really bored with some of the books I'm reading and even not finish them; but I couldn't put Ibiza Summer down.

4.0 out of 5 stars Summer in Ibiza 27 July 2011
Format:Paperback
If someone had asked me if I wanted to go on holiday with my older sister when I was sixteen, I would have probably said no. We were never that close as teenagers and I could think of many things I would have rather done than spend a whole three weeks with her. Due to that, I loved the idea behind this book. I couldn't wait to see what it would be like for Izzy being on holiday with her sister and her sister's friends and what her relationship with Ellie would be like.

Izzy was a good character and one that I liked from the start. Being on holiday with her older sister and her friends who were all quite glamorous and grown up, brought out many insecurities in Izzy. She never felt like she was on the same page as her sister when it came to getting all dressed up to go out, she felt extremely frumpy and not good enough to be seen her Ellie and her friends. It was nice to see Izzy's confidence grow over the course of the book and that she began to really feel at ease with herself and who she was eventually. In this sense, Ibiza Summer really concentrates on issues that are important to teens on each end of the age spectrum. Anna-Louise Weatherley really gives a great voice to teens and knows what's on their minds.

Rex was a fabulous love interest, even if I didn't really understand the relationship at times. Rex is a lot older than Izzy and although she lied to him about her age, it didn't sound as though she could pass for the age she made up and that he would have believed her. Even though Izzy was a nice girl, she didn't really have that much going for her to have so much in common with Rex. Sometimes, it seemed as though she was just going along with whatever he said or whatever he wanted to do because she didn't really know how to deal with boys and real dates etc.

4.0 out of 5 stars Girls will relate to this... 7 July 2008
Format:Paperback
From page one i could relate to the insecurities and feelings that Izzy felt as she got ready with her older sister and her friends, every teenage girl has confidence issues and this book really broke into it and i think it would help girls to realise that they shouldn't be so self conscious about themselves, Izzy typically thinks she doesn't have a very nice body yet older Rex thinks she's beautiful, i think its important that girls of every shape and size realise that even if they don't think they're attractive there will always be someone out there who does and this book will help them to think that. This a perfect teenage read with issues such as lying, drinking, love and decisions and consequences, if you have a teenage daughter i would highly recommend this!
