HOPKINS, Cathy, Mates, Dates & Inflatable Bras, Piccadilly Press-London

Oliva Barrio, 2° ESO A

This book is about a girl called Lucy. She’s looking for her mystery love boy, which turns out to be Lucy’s best friend's brother. But that’s just one part of the story.

It is similar to Mates, Dates and Secret Love but it’s not so much about the romance, it’s more about her school life, her GCSE subjects for next year, and a project that her teacher has organised.

The project is really hard for Lucy because it’s about what makes her be herself, what decisions she wants to make in her life and what career she wants to do.

In the book all her friends knew what to do, except her. She was so desperate that she started changing things about herself and her surroundings (her hair, her room, her clothes, etc.)

At the end, she decides to be a fashion designer. This decision was made one afternoon when she went to a cat walk. She was wearing clothes that she had made herself and a designer came over and gave her a card for when she finishes school.

Since that moment, Lucy’s life was perfect.

I recommend this book, because it teaches how tough life is. And no matter how hard something is, you’ll be able to get it, if you try hard and really want it.

My favourite sentences from the book:

· Choice not chance, determines destiny.

· The people who get on in the world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want. And if they can’t find them, make them.’

· If you want a friend, be a friend.

· No one makes you feel inferior without your permission.

I give this book 3 stars
