The Lovereading4Kids comment

A hilarious, hectic, full-on diary saga as Tallulah Bird, aka Lula, faces up to turning sixteen in just five days without ever having been kissed! And it is not for lack of trying. Lula seems to be jinxed. At least, that’s the rumour going around Hambledon Girl’s High, and certainly a lot of things seem to have gone wrong on her first dates. Can Lula and her friends change fate? They certainly do the best they can as Lula lurches towards her fateful sixteenth birthday.


Kisses for Lula by Samantha Mackintosh

This title features the hilarious twisting-turning plots and ludicrous escapades of a brand new star, Lula Bird! Lula Bird is gorgeous, funny and dreading her birthday because you can't turn 16 if you've never been kissed...So why does every boy in Hambledon run a mile the second she bats her eyelids? The fact is, they fear for their lives. Rumour has it Lula's been jinxed! And it's not as if that's her only problem: Lula thinks she has a stalker, her dad keeps sneaking out at night with a lady's handbag, and a mysterious theft is threatening to bring the town to its knees...
