Overview

I decided that next time I saw him, I'd have a word about maybe giving each other a bit more space. After all, Mum's always saying that you have to work on relationships and not give up at the first

hiccup....

Lucy seems to be out on a limb. Everybody has a boyfriend except her, and since she put Tony on the back burner he's found someone else. Then on a spa weekend with Izzie, she meets someone who seems just right for her. And he feels the same way about her.

But after a while, Lucy starts to feel smothered. Can someone love you too much? Maybe the life of a singleton isn't so bad after all!

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
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

Publishers Weekly
Popular series return with new installments. Cathy Hopkins's foursome of bubbly teenage girls is back for their fifth adventure, Mates, Dates, and Sole Survivors. Fashion-forward Lucy narrates as she and her girlfriends try to find the perfect boy, balance friendships with budding relationships, and casually debate the merits of "putting out" versus holding out. Line drawings of T-shirts with empowering or amusing slogans separate the chapters. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
School Library Journal

Gr 7–10
In the fifth book (Simon Pulse, pap. 2003) in Cathy Hopkins's series, set in London, Lucy realizes that she is the only one of the mates who doesn't have a steady boyfriend. Following some funny, but unsuccessful attempts at matchmaking, Lucy meets a guy who seems just right for her during a spa getaway with Izzie. But after a while, his love becomes too overwhelming. Narrated by Shirley Barthemie, this audiobook will please fans of the series as well as those who enjoy books by Louise Rennison. Barthemie's voice is well suited to the quietly humorous tone of the series, and she easily switches character focus. Lucy's confusion, joy, and at times desperation are portrayed effectively. The only minor weakness is that during moments when the characters are whispering, the narrator's voice is difficult to hear without changing the volume. A fun listen.

    So Good

    I love all of her books.....i think I relate more this book because im the same age as the charecters and you are going through the same problems. You also start to get attached to the charecters and there lives and love lives and things like that. Also the way she explains things gives you like a mental image of the people and there surroundings!!!! So i would defianteley recommend this book to more of the teen age people because you an reall relate to it.

    YOU HAVE TO READ THIS ONE!!!!!!

    Mates, Dates, and Sole Survivors is a book you cannot miss!!!!!! As you know (if you read Mates, Dates, and Sleepover Secrets) that Tony breaks it off with Lucy. HOW COULD HE?!?!? Lucy is now the odd one out being the one one of our four main characters without a boyfriend. Nestia and Izzie start trying to find Lucy a new guy so she doesn't feel so lonely. This only makes Lucy feel that she really is alone. Soon after Izzie and Lucy go to a workshop (a heath workshop) and while there Lucy finds the guy of her dreams, or is he? Soon after they start dating, he starts making decisions for her. Lucy's head is too far high above in the clouds to notice that this new guy is trying to rule her life. Will Lucy ever listen to her friends or will she let him rule her life forever? There are a lot of firsts in this one of the series. I won't tell you what these firsts are, because that would ruin it for you. You CANNOT miss this one in the series!!!!!
