Synopsis

This is Not a Love Story by Keren David

Kitty dreams of a beautiful life, but that's impossible in suburban London where her family is haunted by her father's unexpected death. So when her mum suggests moving to Amsterdam to try a new life, Kitty doesn't take much persuading. Will this be her opportunity to make her life picture perfect? In Amsterdam she meets moody, unpredictable Ethan, and clever, troubled Theo. Two enigmatic boys, who each harbour their own secrets. In a beautiful city and far from home, Kitty finds herself falling in love for the first time. But will love be everything she expected? And will anyone's heart survive?

Reviews

A very modern tale of adolescent love and identity ... the humour is good (Keren David is funny on the resemblance of the London Jewish community to the 19th-century aristocracy) and the complexities and confusion of life for teenagers is brought to life well in a novel told from both Kitty and Theo's perspectives. Telegraph This Is Not A Love Story evokes Amsterdam beautifully -- Amanda Craig New Statesman, 'Best Children's Books of for the Summer'
