Win this feel-good rom-com!

This body positive rom com by Bethany Rutter follows Ruby, a sixteen year old girl who is looking forward to the summer holidays after completing her GCSEs. Although Ruby isn’t particularly sporty, she signs up for the Dawson Dash, a 5k for sixth formers. Ruby enlists the help of Ollie, the boy next door, as they train and bond on the streets of South London. Romance blossoms in this fun and feel good read for pre-teens.

We are delighted to be giving away a copy of Slowcoach to five lucky winners who fill out the form below by 11pm Monday 29th July 2024. Good Luck!
