end? Nobody but Jacqueline Wilson, of course! * Bookbag *
A powerful and important love story, this book explores coming of age and coming out. I hope it will give girls everywhere the courage and freedom to follow their hearts * Good Housekeeping *
There's a reason why Jacqueline Wilson has sold more than 40m books. Yet again she delivers a touching, bittersweet drama about ordinary, credible lives. The characterization is spot on, showing real insight into how today's youngsters think, talk and behave, and Frankie's story beautifully conveys the thrill of first love and the additional complications that being gay can bring to it * Financial Times *
I would have loved it as a younger teen. I'm so pleased for all the girls who will get to read this at the same age as Frankie and see themselves reflected in the pages * Lesbrary.com *
