Lovereading view...

Two best friends set off for a music festival and the long awaited chance to leave behind school, exams, parents – and ex-boyfriends – for a weekend of hedonism. As those who’ve read Non Pratt’s much praised debut Trouble will know, she is exceptionally good at describing the joy and pain of teen friendship. With the action all taking place over the course of the three days of the festival, this will be irresistible to teens, and feels like an authentic and insightful portrayal of two girls coping with first love, and first betrayal. It’s fresh and often very funny, and comes with some authentically steamy sex scenes too. ~ Andrea Reece

Remix by Non Pratt

Non Pratt is a writer to watch - The Guardian. From the author of Trouble comes a novel about boys, bands and best mates. Kaz is still reeling from being dumped by the love of her life...Ruby is bored of hearing about it. Time to change the record. Three days. Two best mates. One music festival. Zero chance of everything working out.


Trouble was one of the most talked-about debuts of 2014 and has quickly established Pratt as a leading name in UK YA literature, attracting recognition from the Carnegie, the Branford Boase Award and the YA Book Prize. The friendship of best mates Ruby and Kaz is at the heart of her second novel, set in the exhilarating, heady world of a summer music festival; bands, boys and trouble beckon. Creating an authentic teenage voice is one of the big challenges of YA writing and this is where Pratt really excels. Her characters are smart, funny and very real.

Fiona Noble The Bookseller -- Fiona Noble * The Bookseller * This might be one of the easiest reviews I've written in ages. Remix is a smasher of a follow-up to Trouble and proves that Non is going to go from strength to strength, in my opinion. Music lovers will adore the little nods and accuracy of Remix when it comes to loving bands so much that it hurts. Well done, Non. Well done -- SisterSpooky * SisterSpooky * Remix was a smart, emotionally charged drama fest full of intense emotions and makes the perfect summer book with its focus on endings and new beginnings. [...] I would recommend this book to those who love witty, brutally honest writing and realistic teen characters! -- Becky Day * Blogs-of-a-Bookaholic * I enjoyed Non Pratt's debut, Trouble, and Remix is even better. The protagonists, who alternate telling the story, have their own distinct characters and engaging dialogue. Pratt conjures up the insecurity and intensity of being young and away at a festival (even one with a Mellow Tent) and builds the tension well [...] The novel is moving and a fun summer read. * The Telegraph * An anarchic, hilarious paean to friendship, music and epic mistake-making, with pitch-perfect teen voices throughout. -- Imogen Russell-Williams * Teens on Moon Lane *
