It's finally the summer holidays, and Jess can't wait to spend time with all her friends, especially JJ now that they're officially dating. But then JJ has to return to the states, the other boys head-off on holiday together and her dad decides that she should get a job over the break, and suddenly a fun summer seems like a distant dream. So when Stephanie Harper, a famous astrologer, asks Jess to go on tour with her, she jumps at the chance. And with JJ away and a new boy on the scene, Jess wonders if this summer could be full of excitement after all…
Cathy Hopkins lives in Bath with her husband and three cats.
She has had over 60 books published so far and principally writes for the teenage market where her books have been translated into 34 languages. Her five teen series to date are: the Mates Dates series, the Truth Dare series, the Cinnamon Girl series, the Zodiac Girl series and Million Dollar Mates. Cathy has also written standalone novels for teens: Dead Dudes, and Love At Second Sight. Playlist for a Broken Heart is due to be published by Simon and Schuster in the UK in May 2014.
In her spare time, Cathy loves nothing more than a long walk and pub lunch in the countryside with friends. She loves reading books from all types of genres. When it's raining, she likes watching great box sets like The Killing (Danish version), Nurse Jackie, West Wing, The Wire or Mad Men. Apart from that, Cathy has always been curious about the answers to the big questions like why are we here, where have we come from and where do we go. Not having found a satisfactory answer yet, she is going to take up painting instead. She is also still looking for the perfect hairdresser who can do a blow dry that lasts through damp weather and doesn't make her hair go fluffy.
