Overview

" I reckon that's the last we've seen of Ollie Axford," I said.

"I wouldn't be so sure TJ," said Nesta. "I bet he calls and asks you out."

"Nah, he looks like a player. You know the type. Too much of a twinkle in his eye to be trusted."

"A bit like Luke then?" said Lucy.

Boys are like buses for TJ. No sign of one for ages and then two come ...

Overview

" I reckon that's the last we've seen of Ollie Axford," I said.

"I wouldn't be so sure TJ," said Nesta. "I bet he calls and asks you out."

"Nah, he looks like a player. You know the type. Too much of a twinkle in his eye to be trusted."

"A bit like Luke then?" said Lucy.

Boys are like buses for TJ. No sign of one for ages and then two come along at the same time! First there's charmer Ollie Axford. And just when TJ has decided that he could be the one, old flame Luke De Biasi tells her that he wants to rekindle their romance.

TJ is torn between the boys, and unhappy that it makes her look like a two-timer. But it all seems unimportant when someone close to her is taken seriously ill. More than ever, TJ needs a clear head and the support of her friends as she faces the most important summer of her life.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Joe Ann Hinrichs
Teenage relationships, besides defying the natural order of adult logic, are found to be the same in America and England where this novel takes place. The American reader may be a bit taken back initially by the unique British language of the teenagers but will soon become close friends to each of Hopkins' delightful characters. TJ, a vivaciously fun young teenage girl and her ‘mates' (best friends in America), find themselves in all kinds of humorous and flirtatious situations. Life can be quite confusing and complicated on an hourly basis when you are a teenager and beginning to know who you are and what you want to become. Parents, on the other hand, are just hard to deal with when you least expect them to be. That is until one of them becomes ill, then you are not sure what to do. Thank goodness for your mates and your dates! This is a fun book to read. Enjoy hearing how TJ, Izzie, Lucy, and Nesta bond together to make the best of the summer. Laugh with them about their various romantic run-ins with members of the opposite gender.
