A Hot Cold Summer
This is a middle fiction novel (10-13) out through Hardie Grant in April 2014. It’s one of the first books in their new Choose Your Own Ever After series. I loved reading choose your own adventures when I was younger. I loved the freedom of being able to choose the next step for a character.
A pick-a-path series giving the reader the chance to make the decisions, and choose how the story goes! It’s the last day of school and Frankie Jones is looking down the barrel of a long, hot, boring summer with only her guitar for company until …
1. She gets a surprise chance to go to London. She’s dying to go – except that it will mean seeing her heartbreakingly cute British friend Jack again. Will things take up where they left off? Or can Frankie finally prove she’s over him?
OR 2. Her dad invites her on a beach holiday. But when she discovers her dad’s new girlfriend and her daughter Ellie are also coming on their trip, Frankie’s not sure how she feels. Will she get to spend any time with her dad at all? Or will she be expected to hang out with Ellie, her new best frenemy?
Follow your heart right to the end, or go back and choose all over again.
So it was heaps of fun writing this book and my second one came out in December 2014.
