The Lovereading4Kids comment

Perfectly pitched for the ‘just-about-to-be-a-teenager’ market with some lively and likeable characters and a plot line that fizzes with emotions of every kind. It’s also a lesson on the importance of family and friends, and that sometimes a teenager’s hopes and aspirations have to be curtailed in the light of them.

Synopsis

Mates, Dates and Sizzling Summers by Cathy Hopkins

TJ's life is turned upside down as new boy Ollie Axford pursues her, while ex boyfriend Luke still tugs on her heart Which of them can she trust? Events conspire and suddenly she finds that she's the one doing the two timing. Does that mean she's the real love rat? In the meantime, her father has a serious heart attack, and TJ also has to realign her thinking about her family, and her life. She is lucky to have such close friends.
