|This is a young adult story about teen angst, friendship and the first flush of romance.
Simon is a young 14 year old who is quite content to mess around with his mates until he becomes acquainted with Leah a 16 year old neighbour who begins looking after his younger sister.
Before long Simon and Leah become an inseparable pair during the long Summer. As Simon discovers the first flush of love and romance things spiral beyond his control and jealousies soon creep in.
This is a reasonably short read, that's quite well written and had enough to keep me reading. It's an ideal book for the age group that it's aimed at.
Please do not be put off by the dates above that I read the book as I'd to put it to one side unfortunately as other books needed to be read before I'd chance to finish it.(less)
