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.

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.

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.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.
