Best-selling Sue Limb is as entertaining as ever at catching the complex and swirling emotions of friendships and first love. Jess dumps Fred. But why doesn’t he beg to be taken back? Of course it is no longer anything to do with her but Jess finds she can’t bear the sight of Fred with Jodie. Maybe Luke, who suddenly turns up living next door, will take her mind off things. And then there’s Flora to consider. Is she really going to have a share a bedroom with her sister if her father’s business goes bust? Jess recounts the simmering dramas of her life with hilarious, deadpan humour.
A side-splittingly funny new Jess Jordan story. Jess has broken up with Fred, though really she is waiting for him to come to her door and beg to get back together again. But is that the sort of thing Fred would do? He has said himself that he has no backbone ...Meanwhile, a gorgeous boy has moved in next door and, to Jess's mingled horror and delight, is making it very, very obvious that he would like to be a lot closer than next door... Surely, now, Fred will be driven, in a fit of jealousy, to sweep Jess back off her feet? Won't he? Full of Sue Limb's very funny take on early teenage life and problems, fans of Jess Jordan will be thrilled to have a new Fred and Jess story.
