Synopsis

Six Steps to a Girl by Sophie Mckenzie

Luke spots Eve at his dad's funeral. She's hot - and she's the perfect distraction from his messed up family life. There's only one problem - she's got a boyfriend. Still, Luke's not going to give up that easily...When he meets Ryan at a party and hears about 'the Six Steps method' to guarantee success with any girl, Luke determines to put it to the test. Step by step, he begins to get closer to Eve - but one step forward seems to mean two steps back, and when he's hospitalised by the jealous boyfriend, he wonders if any girl - even one as gorgeous as Eve - is really worth it...

About the Author

Sophie Mckenzie

Sophie McKenzie was born and brought up in London, where she still lives with her teenage son.

She worked as a journalist and magazine editor until she was made redundant, at which point she seized the opportunity to pursue her ambition to become a writer and enrolled in a creative writing course.

Her debut was the multi-award winning Girl, Missing (2006), and she is also the author of Blood Ties and sequel, Blood Ransom, The Medusa Project series, Luke and Eve trilogy and most recent novels, the thrilling Split Second and Every Second Counts. She has clocked up numerous national and regional book awards, including the Red House Children’s Book Award, has been a featured World Book Day author twice and has twice been longlisted for the Carnegie Medal.
