Review

Ellie, Magda and Nadine are the Girls in Love of the title. Ellie, whose mother died when she was young, lives with her dad, his new wife Anna, and her half-brother Eggs. But she misses her mother's love and advice terribly, particularly when it comes to the ever-difficult area of boys.

When her best friend Nadine gets a boyfriend, Ellie feels pressured to find one too. But she also learns the true value of female friendship.

This first book in a trilogy aimed at young teens is a humorous yet sensitive look at friendship, the lovelife of young teenagers and coming to terms with a step-family.
