The Lovereading4Kids comment

Two best friends set off for a music festival and the long awaited chance to leave behind school, exams, parents – and ex-boyfriends – for a weekend of hedonism. As those who’ve read Non Pratt’s much praised debut Trouble will know, she is exceptionally good at describing the joy and pain of teen friendship. With the action all taking place over the course of the three days of the festival, this will be irresistible to teens, and feels like an authentic and insightful portrayal of two girls coping with first love, and first betrayal. It’s fresh and often very funny, and comes with some authentically steamy sex scenes too. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Remix by Non Pratt

Kaz is still reeling from being dumped by the love of her life...Ruby is bored of hearing about it. Time to change the record. Three days. Two best mates. One music festival. Zero chance of everything working out.

A note from Non "I always say I write for fourteen-year-old Non. And I do. She'd have loved to read Remix because it's all about a world of music and boys that she was desperated to get into....but that's the bait. The friendship between Kaz and Ruby is the hook that would have kept her reading.

Back then, I longed to be Sam to someone's Frodo, to have someone call me 'best' and trust me with their secrets. But it seemed to me that this kind of friendship was for other people and that I would never be anyone's 'best'.

Looking in from the outside I saw only the joy in being special and not the fear in having to share; I saw teamwork, not competition; security, not self-doubt. I thought best friends shared everything, I didn't realise that sometimes they can't and that when that happens, it can change everything.

At fourteen I believed it was boys that broke your heart, not best friends. The thing is - I also believe that they're the ones who can put you back together."
