I was bought Mates, Dates & Portobello Princesses for Christmas, along with Mates, Dates and Cosmic Kisses. I loved both books, but particularly Portobello Princesses, because the challenges and problems seemed to be aimed at me. I started reading this on Boxing Day afternoon and had finished by the evening as I just couldn't put it down! Any teenager, or trainee teenager (as I am) should read this book. Every time I turned a page - there I was!!! - If you don't enjoy this book then you've obviously not started being a teenager yet! Great books, can't wait to read the others as they come out.
