The Book That Made Me: James Mayhew 17/07/19
Publisher: Chicken House
Kicked out of ballet academy and straight into a school ski trip, Mouse knows certain classmates can't wait to see her fall flat on her face.
Meanwhile, Jack looks forward to danger and girls, but hasn't a clue about either. That's until French teen sensation Roland arrives in the resort - who Jack is a dead ringer for.
When Roland persuades Jack to be his stand-in for a day, Jack, in disguise, declares his feelings for Mouse. But what happens when he's no longer a pop star - will it be music and magic on the slopes?
Mistaken identity, fractured friendships, new crushes, and a runaway hamster - Tom Ellen and Lucy Ivison's second novel has it all. The alternating perspectives are pitch perfect and wonderfully (sometimes cringe-worthily) authentic.
Laugh-out-loud funny, with wry observations about friendship and how to fit in, Never Evers captures that 'first crush' feeling, as well as the complicated dynamics between groups of friends.
