Description

The teenage world of Jess Jordon is looking characteristically chaotic: Mum has joined an online dating programme and has recruited Jess as advisor, while Jess' best friend Flora has a rich new boyfriend who Jess can't possibly keep up with. Then Jess' own boyfriend, Fred, does something unbelievably treacherous and spineless. Jess is becoming completely fed up with the male sex, and is beginning to think that the only reliable form of male is e-mail ...Never mind, there's Valentine's Day to look forward to. Fred is sure to make amends then. Isn't he? Full of Sue Limb's very funny take on teenage life and problems, fans of "Girl, 15" will be thrilled to have available a new Fred and Jess story. It's only when you've stopped laughing that you realise that, in addition to writing with wit and warmth, Sue Limb has also dealt effortlessly with bigger and important themes of friendship and loyalty.show more

Review quote

'Limb's heroine is cleverer than Rennison's, less bonkers than McKay's, but just as captivating' The Times 'Hilarious and spot-on how it captures those boyfriend blues' Mizz 'In "Girl, 15", Limb is on sparkling form. Amidst the slapstick, Limb weaves such themes as friendship and rivalry, the importance or not of appearances and so forth ... this is pink lit that girls (and boys with a copy in a plain wrapper) will love' Books for Keeps 'Very funny and sharply observed, this is the kind of book no teenage girl should be without' The Booksellershow more
