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’.

Synopsis

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.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
