The Lovereading4Kids comment
February 2013 Debut of the Month
All the travails of being a teenager seem to be heaped on the shoulders of the unfortunately named, April-May February. A scholarship girl at the exclusive local school, April-May seems to have a knack of getting everything just a little bit wrong. She blames her parents – of course – and takes refuge in the Twilight stories – whenever her teachers let her! The hectic pace of the dramas and April-May’s own largely benign view of them make this is a fresh and entertaining novel which reveals that teen trouble is the same the whole world over.
A Piece of Passion from the Editor, Sara O'Connor
A MONTH OF APRIL MAY: I couldn't resist April-May. She's the kind of whip-smart girl I wish I could have been when I was growing up. She loves books (like I did), but she doesn't let anyone push her around. As a South African sensation, Edyth Bulbring deserves her distinctive voice to be heard around the world. It's impossible not to fall in love with this utterly delightful book - with April-May February, stuck with the craziest name ever, her dad Fluffy and her mouth-breather friend Melly. A perfect book for young teens.

A Month with April-May by Edyth Bulbring
'Life is not a bowl of cherries. Suck it up.' On April-May's first day at Trinity College, she has the wrong colour bag, too-bright socks and she gets her favourite novel confiscated for reading it during class. She makes total enemies with the evil Mrs Ho, but she makes total friends with mouth-breather Melly. Then, she meets the gorgeous Seb, loses her entire wardrobe to a hobo and gets branded a sockless trouble-maker. A Month with April-May is a one-eyebrow-raised account of a teenager's trials and tribulations as she navigates a new school, a new family situation and a whole new way of life.
