Good morning! I woke up nice and early…oh the joys…but it does mean that I get to keep myself entertained for a few hours with a good book! Over the past few days I’ve been reading an amazing book and I had about 20% left to read so I couldn’t wait to finish it this morning! Sundays In Bed With… is hosted by Midnight Book Girl.
A few days ago I received a very exciting email saying that Penguin had approved my request to read Love Frankie by Jacqueline Wilson! I’ve been a massive fan for YEARS since I first read Glubbslyme and I’ve always been keen to read every one of her books. Admittedly, I’m a bit more old school and haven’t read some of her newer books, but Love Frankie immediately stood out as a fine return to her more teen content (my faves!). So, it didn’t take me long to pick this one up from the time that I received it.
Frankie is nearly fourteen and teenage life certainly comes with its ups and downs. Her mum is seriously ill with MS and Frankie can feel herself growing up quickly, no thanks to Sally and her gang of bullies at school.
When Sally turns out to be not-so-mean after all, they strike up a friendship and are suddenly spending all of their time together.
But Frankie starts to wonder whether these feelings she has for Sally are stronger than her other friendships. Might she really be in love?
Frankie doesn’t want Sally to just be her friend. She wants her to be her girlfriend. But does Sally feel the same?
I just flew through this book and this morning was the perfect opportunity to finish it! Right up until the end I wasn’t sure how things would work out which kept me hooked as I turned every page!
Have you read Love Frankie yet or are you looking forward to it coming out?
