The Lovereading4Kids comment

Real romance as the highs and lows of being a teenage girl are hilariously explored in this story of Hayley who hopes that a trip to Italy will bring her all the things she’s missing – and mostly a dreamy ‘true love’.


Pretty Face by Mary Hogan

I don't speak the language. I don't like meeting new people. And I have no idea where Umbria is. Who cares?! I'm going to Italy! Hayley is overweight, and she's never felt happy in her own skin. But this summer everything is going to change. She's off to Italy, where she'll discover what real pizza tastes like, what real beauty looks like, and maybe even what true amore can be.

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.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

Lorraine Woods

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

Erica Motoc, age 7

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

It’s so easy to find the right book for your child. Such an easy-to-use, yet in-depth website. 100% reliable.

Pippa, Jack, Liam & Matthew Wils

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.
