Synopsis

The Number One Rule for Girls by Rachel McIntyre

New comedy drama from the acclaimed author of Me & Mr J Daisy knows a thing or two about love and romance. She's surrounded by it - in fact, there's no escape! Not only are her parents childhood sweethearts turned soulmates, they also run the very successful wedding agency 'Something Borrowed', helping couples to tie the knot in whatever frilly, quirky, tasteful, outrageous way they choose. So it's no surprise that Daisy has a pretty clear vision of how her life with boyfriend Matt is going to pan out. There's one major flaw in this plan - Matt and Daisy have split up! Determined not to brood, Daisy sets out to re-invent her life and her dreams. And that's when Toby enters the scene, who appears to be perfect, but is turning all the Rules upside down...An irresistable exploration of post break-up life featuring Rachel McIntyre's trademark wit and observation. Rachel studied English Literature at university and has taught English in Spain and the USA as well as the UK. While writing her first novel, Me & Mr J, she was teaching in a sixth form college in northern England, where she was reminded every day that young adults love reading and need fiction that explores the day-to-day challenges they face.

Reviews

Praise for Me & Mr J 'A book hasn't moved me and messed me up like this one did for a long time! Such a stunning debut

'It took me completely by surprise - it was such an enjoyable, thought-provoking read'

'This book will break your heart a little, but you should read it anyway because it's beautiful and real and I loved it'

-bullying storyline is emotionally charged and makes you feel like you are experiencing it at the same time as Lara

-jess, Guardian Children's Books 'I feel if more people were to read this book, then perhaps it would give people who watch bullying from day to day the chance to say no and stand up for what is right

's Books 'The author tells a story as if it were real life, and because of this, the book is perhaps one of the most realistic I have ever read'
