The Boy from France
Publisher: Piccadilly Press
When Vix’s visiting French exchange student turns out to be a boy, her classmates are jealous. But Vix is seriously regretting being a host – she already has enough to do caring for her disabled mother.
Xavier soon changes her opinion as he is charming, understanding and gorgeous. He also appears to have eyes for no-one but Vix, but that brings its own complications and conflicts of interest as she tries to juggle all the demands being made on her time and energy.
This fun and frothy story of holiday romance is contrasted with a thoughtful depiction of the challenges of life as a young carer. As well as being an entertaining read, it raises some interesting questions about priorities and self-worth.
