In case you’re wondering, this is not a love story.


My name is Victoria Spring. I like to sleep and I like to blog. Last year – before all that stuff with Charlie and before I had to face the harsh realities of A-Levels and university applications and the fact that one day I really will have to start talking to people – I had friends. Things were very different, I guess, but that’s all over now.


Now there’s Solitaire. And Michael Holden.


I don’t know what Solitaire are trying to do, and I don’t care about Michael Holden.


I really don’t.




This incredible debut novel by outstanding young author Alice Oseman

is perfect for fans of John Green, Rainbow Rowell and all unflinchingly

honest writers.
