Took me back to my teenage days of crushes on older boys, sibling rivalry and mystery friends I didn't want my parents to know about. I had a few pen pals (this was long long ago before email!)and treasured those letters so much!
Shireen is a really well thought out character and sounds like she would be a fun person to know and Abbie is just a teenage girl who knows better than everyone else what everything is all about. I think most young ladies would enjoy this very Girlie book because they will find many familiar real life parallels to a lot of the characters in the book.
And just like Goalden Girl Tracey Morait has again created very believable characters. Its a book based in Liverpool so the language is localised as in Goalden Girl which is great.
