Format: Paperback
Holly is about a teenage girl who's life is typical of an adolescence life. She has a best friend (Ella), a boyfriend (Adam), loving, caring parents and a well paying job at Ye Olde Tea Shoppe. Infact, Holly is content in her life, that is until the first package arrives. It was wrapped in brown paper, and sent to the tea shop with a brief note enclosed as well as an expensive Pashmina scarf. However, the giver of this fantastic gift remained anonymus. Initially, Holly believed that the presents were being sent by a secret admirer However, the mystery gift giver does not stop here. Presents continue to be sent to her at the tea shop, and one fateful day she meets this person, and he tells her something that will change her life forever.
I think that Holly is a great book. The author writes so that you are able to emphasise with the characters. The plot is highly adventurous with a twisting plot. I really liked it. It had a accurate view on teenage life. If you like this book, you will also like other books by Mary Hooper.

I have read Megan 1,2 and 3 which were all so good, so I decided to give Holly a try and this book was amazing. Its a book about this girl who lives a pretty normal life, her parents are fine, she has a great best friend, a boyfriend and a pretty OK job. But then a package arrives, hopefully from a secret admirer, but soon everything changes and what started out as a few gifts ended up changing her life forever. I think Mary Hooper has once again outdane herself. I started this book on Friday and finished it only two hours later. I just couldn't put it down.

I have read almost all of Mary Hooper's novels as they are easy reads. Having just finished one that I found particularly good, I was slightly disappointed with 'Holly'. It doesn't take a lot of time and is good for younger teens but the story was predictable and lacked depth. It did pass the time though and was good, but I wouldn't recommend it. Hooper's other novels are worth a read though 100%!

Good thing is that its short and an easy read. I read it easily in one evening.

However, the story is unoriginal, and I feel that I have read plots like this many times, and also very predictable.

I do like the style though, very simple and not pretentious at all.
