My Scorching Summer Diary
Publisher: Corgi Children's
Kelly Ann’s head is filled with dreams as she leaves Glasgow, her family and her boyfriend Chris for a six-week summer hotel job in London - and an audition with a cutting-edge modern dance company. But even her wildest dreams didn’t include losing her luggage, stealing a stranger’s boxer shorts, and appearing on Southend beach in an unexpectedly see-through bikini! Nor did they include Mark, a drop-dead gorgeous American guest at the hotel, who is fast becoming more than just a friend…..
Desperate to impress her workmates, and to be independent, Kelly Ann learns some home truths about herself as her diary unfolds the highs and lows of her summer, and soon reveals that what she has left at home is just as precious as her exciting new life. Heartfelt, funny and true.
