The Summer I Turned Pretty
For the whole of her life, Isabel has spent her summers at the beach house with family and friends.
She has always been the annoying younger sister, the little girl at the edge of the action never quite being allowed to join in but this year, as she turns sixteen, things feel different.
Are the boys really looking at her with new interest or is there something else going on, something she doesn't know about?
What at first appears to be a frivolous, frothy, beach read ends up tackling some tough issues and exploring both the joys and sorrows which characterise a girl's transition to adulthood.
