Publisher: Chicken House

Exams are over, university is looming on the horizon, and Sam and Hannah are both looking forward to an epic summer.

They're also both looking for love - but finding their 'lobster' soon proves difficult. What with social misunderstandings, the plotting of well-meaning friends, and their own anxieties to deal with, will they ever fall in love?

This 'socially-awkward love story' is told from the alternating perspectives of Sam and Hannah, and follows the ups-and-downs of one eventful summer. The first novel from friends and collaborators Tom Ellen and Lucy Ivison, Lobsters is a frank and very funny young adult romance, aimed firmly at older teens and young adults - there is sexual content and strong language throughout. With lots of laugh-out-loud moments, this is a hugely entertaining debut and young adult readers are sure to relish its hilarious, no-holds-barred depiction of teenage life, love and sex.
