Cathy Hopkins's best Brit buds have returned, this time in a book narrated by Lucy, who's out to find Mr. Right.
After a missed connection with Tony, Lucy takes the advice of her best pals and decides to instead focus on other boys and on herself. She and Izzie attend a spa/self-help retreat for the weekend, but Lucy is surprised when a run-in (literally) with a guy turns out to be more than she expected. Ah, Daniel seems so sweet at first: attentive to her, generous, into fashion...but then Lucy gets word that his past relationships have fizzled because of his overbearing behavior. Read that: He has a history of being a control freak -- but is that just history, or will it happen with Lucy, too? Never fear, for Lucy's good sense and her friends' sage advice put her on the path of being true to herself.
Another excellent entry in the Mates, Dates series, this book will keep fans coming back for more. Hopkins's characters are cool and honest, and she addresses topics that deeply connect with today's teens. If you haven't yet discovered this top-notch series, you're missing out. Shana Taylor
