The Lovereading4Kids comment

This is a compulsively readable novel about life-long friendships and young love and as the latter looks as if a turbulent summer in France just might jeopardize the life-long friendship, are Rachel and Samantha strong enough to ensure they step back from the brink in time?

‘Had me living with the characters, laughing with them, changing the world with them, and if I dare admit it, crying with them. A fabulous story – I couldn’t put it down.’ Wendy Cooling, Author and book commentator

‘[her characters] are lively, serious, intelligent and committed; people anyone would want to know, anyone would love.’ Carousel

Synopsis

Two Friends, One Summer by Kate Le Vann

Best friends Fran and Samantha's mums have agreed to send them on a private French exchange holiday. This is a reversal of their roles for Samantha, as usually, she is the luckier, more glamorous one and Fran trails a bit behind. And then something happens which destroys Samantha's trust in Fran. Can their shaky friendship survive?

Reviews

‘A great new talent.’ The Times

'Compelling, poignant and uplifting in the most unusual way, Kate’s writing is perfectly pitched.’ The Bookseller of Things I Know About Love.

‘…one of the finest evocations of young love that I have ever read – subtle, delicate and utterly moving.’
