The Boy from France by Hilary Freeman


The Boy from France by Hilary Freeman

A French exchange brings new agonies and ectasies to Camden Town! When Vix's classmates find out that their visiting French exchange students will include boys, everyone is very excited. Everyone, that is, except Vix - who has a sick mother to cope with, and no time for boys. But her student does turn out to be a boy, and, what's more, he's both gorgeous and charming. All her friends and schoolmates are jealous, especially when he appears to have eyes for no one but Vix. But is he for real? How long can it last? And will Vix's secrets and lies destroy the relationship?


'Engaging and fun ... Camden comes to life!'

'Familiar teen themes of friendships and boys are given a celebrity twist in the first of a new series: Camden Town Tales. Fresh, funny and very readable, with a pretty cover too.'

'A bright, gossipy novel. Will have teenage girls desperate to experience 'the excitement, noise and colour'

'A fast-paced, easy to read story perfect for teenage girls. It's chock-full of romance, friendship and celebrities and paints a brilliant picture of London - Each character is realistic and likeable - Freeman has a great style when it comes to writing teen behaviour. Fans of Cathy Hopkins - and Cathy Cassidy will love this.'

'The market and town are very vivid - the characters fun and convincing - really amusing!'
