Nobody's Girl officially released in the UK today


Nobody's Girl officially goes on sale in the UK today. Available from all good bookshops and Amazon.

Bea thinks she's the most boring seventeen-year-old in the world. She's not pretty or popular or funny, unlike her mother who had Bea when she was 17. The only glamorous thing about Bea is the French father who left before she was born and lives in Paris.

She yearns for la vie Parisienne every moment of her dull existence. So when Ruby Davies, the leader of her school's most elite clique picks Bea as her new best friend and asks her to go on holiday with them, she's wary but delighted. If nothing else it's two weeks away from her over-protective mother.

But when the gang arrive in Spain, Bea is crushed to realise that Ruby and her posse have simply been using her. Bea wreaks vengeance on her so-called friends, and plans to decamp to Paris to find her father. But when she falls asleep on the train and wakes up in Bilbao, she meets a group of American students who are backpacking around Europe and bonds with them straight away, especially the gorgeous Toph who helps heals Bea's hurting heart.

Though Bea has a shock in store when they finally get to Paris. The 'City of Lovers' really works it magic on Bea and Toph who spend a week wandering the sun-dappled streets of Paris, talking, holding hands and falling in love. When it comes time to go home to confront her Mum about her mysterious father, the new version of Bea is determined that she'll never go back to her old, boring way of life - she's no longer Nobody's Girl; she belongs to herself and to Toph...

But with an ocean between them, will he wait for her?

Once you've read Nobody's Girl, please review it, blog about it, Tweet about it (if you liked it, that is!) it really, really helps.

Live on

I actually loved Nobody's Girl. I think I do like it more than Let's Get Lost. I may have to re-read it.
Would there be a sequel?

I absolutely loved this book. It's the first of yours i've read and have just looked at some of your other books that i'm going to buy as soon as i have money to spare. Will there be a sequel to this book?? I really hope so.

Sounds like a must read, i'm one those adults who loves teen books and 90's tv series like My So Called life so sounds the perfect book.
