Book Description

My name is Rebecca Rafferty, and I know that this is going to be the best summer ever. Well, maybe. On the plus side, holidays mean no school for three months. And my band Hey Dollface are going to a cool summer camp where we will (hopefully) learn how to become total rock stars. Which is all good, obviously. But there are problems too. There are summer exams, a band of mean boys out to spoil our fun, my friend Cass's love life is complicated and my own love life just doesn't really exist at all ...

charming, uplifting story -- in chatty diary style, the third Rebecca title from Dublin's Anna Carey will please early teen fans of the likes of Sarah Webb and Cathy Cassidy -- Evening Echo full of real feel-good fun, a touch of romance and is a wonderfully accurate reflection on girly teen life. Young teens and older ones too will love it -- a bright and breezy read featuring some inventive songs and a main character who isn't a total drip and doesn't need a man to make her relevant -- Sunday Business Post a gentle introduction to feminism -- Sunday Business Post a hilarious new book, perfect for the summer. Cleverly written, witty and smart -- a must read -- Rebecca Rafferty ... is something of a Books for Keeps favourite -- Once again, author Anna Carey delivers another lively dose of teen fiction, that feels true throughout and entertains from the first page to the last -- It's honest, real, touching, a terrific piece of writing -- the book ends with the stage set for a further adventure which promises to be equally entertaining. Rock on, Rebecca! --
