The Lovereading4Kids comment
A must read for anyone thinking of going on a school exchange… Jamie is shy so, of course, she dreads going on the school’s exchange trip to Spain. Coerced into it, all the things she thinks will go wrong do – and more – but there are also compensations! Jamie’s acutely observed first person narrative is delightful and hilarious.
Tapas and Tears by Chris Higgins
Jaime never wanted to go on the school exchange trip to Spain in the first place. She finds life awkward enough as it is and, because of her embarrassing blushing habit, she tries to avoid drawing attention to herself. Living in someone else's home, and in a foreign country, is way out of her comfort zone! But persuaded by her mum and her best friends she reluctantly agrees to go and stay with the carefully selected and colourfully-named Concepcion Inmaculada. After all, a girl named after the Virgin Mary has got to be quiet, kind and gentle ...Wrong! Concha is a scary, rebellious, boy-mad loner with a mind of her own. Jaime is going to have to be prepared for anything and everything! Ole!
