LoveReading View on A Perfect Ten

Winner of the Young Minds Book Prize 2009.   Chris Higgins’ writing rivals the likes of Cathy Cassidy and Jacqueline Wilson.  She’s an author truly in tune with the teen psyche.  This is her fourth novel and she gets better and better with each new storyline.  The characterisation is spot on and the situations so ‘real world’.

There’s plenty for late tweens/early teens to get their teeth into, both with this one and her other bestsellers -  Love Ya BabeIt's a 50-50 Thing, Pride and Penalties, and her debut 32 C, That's Me.

When new girl Patty joins the club, Eva's plans start to unravel and secrets that have long been hidden threaten to surface...
