The Lovereading4Kids comment
August 2013 Book of the Month Teen life is brilliantly captured in fourteen year old Faith’s funny and sharp observations on her new start in year 10. School is hard enough at the best of times but now, on top of everything, Faith is split up from her best friend. She joins a choir to meet the boys from Radcliffe only to find out that understanding boys and singing can easily get to be too much!, and she begins to make new friends. Faith packs a lot into one action-filled term and readers will revel in following her every step of the way.
In addition to our Lovereading expert opinion for Have a Little Faith... a small number of children were lucky enough to be invited to review this title. Here's a taster....'a funny coming of age book about Faith who is just starting Year 10… And she's already in trouble

Have a Little Faith by Candy Harper
Year Ten has just begun and I'm already in trouble. The way Miss Ramsbottom acts you'd think I'm always causing explosions or giving teachers' radical haircuts (whereas it was just that one time). And now she's separated me from my best friend, Megs, which means I have no one to give me a piggy back or check for dangly bogies. At least the school is trying to make amends by bussing in boys for our choir. So I can stare at Dreamy Finn until he realises I'm the girl for him… except he's singing a duet with my sworn enemy and her big head keeps blocking my view. Fortunately, I've got a plan to solve both problems; as long as I'm careful with the squeezy cheese and the underage driving everything should be just fine ...
Amy Knight, age 14 - 'Y10 has just begun for Faith, split up from her wingman Megs, Faith finds herself drooling over dreamy Finn. Sadly he fails acknowledge her existence so she creates her most daring plan to date!' Click here to read the full review.
