The Lovereading4Kids comment

Flirty Dancing author Jenny McLachlan has her finger firmly on the pulse of teen girls! Love Bomb is the second book in the Ladybirds series, and the good news is that it’s just as funny, smart and current as the first. Narrator Betty Plum has fallen in love by page 5 – but it’s literally the first time she’s fancied someone real. (Italics are a vital component of this book, which is all the better for it). As we all know however, the path of true love never runs smooth, and the person Betty really needs – her mum – isn’t there to help. The breezy humour is cut through with real sadness, but the reader will be left smiling, cheered, inspired and happy. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Love Bomb by Jenny McLachlan

Love Bomb is the sequel to Flirty Dancing, the debut book by Jenny McLachlan. This laugh-out-loud series is about a group of four (ex-) best friends (Bea, Betty, Kat and Pearl) known as the Ladybirds. Each of the four books will focus on a different Ladybird. Love Bomb tells Betty’s story.

Betty Plum has never been in love. She's never even kissed a boy. But when H.O.T. Toby starts school it's like Betty has been hit with a thousand of Cupid's arrows. It's like a bomb has exploded – a love bomb!

Is Betty ready to fall in love? Will she finally have her first kiss?

Reviews

PRAISE FOR FLIRTY DANCING:

‘I was rooting for Bea all the way and cheered when she began to emerge from her shell. Hurray for Bea!’ Jo Cotterill (author of Star Crossed)

‘Hilarious’ Sunday Times

‘Perfect for girls in years seven, eight and nine’ Guardian

‘I absolutely loved this warm, funny tale of jiving, mean girls and love on the dancefloor. Great jacket and an irresistible title too. Perfect for the Geek Girl/Louise Rennison younger end of teen’ Fiona Noble, The Bookseller

‘Sure to draw in an army of fans’ Ink Pellet

‘This book is funny, sad, confusing and full of tension all at the same time’ First News

‘Smart, funny writing, engagingly balancing the serious stuff - bullying, first love, friendship - with the joy of lindy hop and aerial moves’ Booktrust

‘Read this book if: you love dancing, your BFFs, boys, musicals, and annoying little sisters (my favourite character was Emma, Bea’s three-year-old sister, whose inappropriate comments made me laugh out loud!)’ We Love This Book

About the Author

Jenny McLachlan

Jenny McLachlan spent thirteen years of her life teaching English: a job that combined her passion for the written word with her passion for showing off. It also provided her with the inspiration for her books. In the summer of 2014 she became a fulltime writer. Jenny lives by the seaside with her husband and two small but fierce girls. In addition to writing, she enjoys exploring the South Downs, running and, if it will embarrass her husband enough, jiving in any vaguely suitable situation.

At @HHSHaringey we love @lovereading4kids because our pupils can practice reviewing & get free upcoming books before anyone else!

Helen Swinyard – Heartlands High

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

Jemma Rubens, age 10

Lovereading4kids is great, we get books really early never late. We love to read and review, and think you would like it too. The excitement

Jasmine Harris-Hart, age 12

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo
