Winner of the RNA Goldsboro Books Romantic Novel of the Year Award 2017.

Though she transports her readers into glamourous worlds Sophia Bennett fills her stories with warm, believable characters and always keeps the emphasis on the important things - family, friends, love. A chance event at a backstage meet and greet with a top boy band sees Nina whisked from Croydon to join their entourage as PA to the lead singer’s Hollywood girlfriend. The pop star lifestyle is scintillating reading but the band’s soap opera of breakdown, break up and heartache really holds our attention. When the setting moves from luxury hotels to a crumbling stately home in the middle of nowhere – the manager’s last desperate attempt to get the boys to write a new album – things get really romantic, because there it’s all about music – what it does to us, why it matters. Perfect wish-fulfilment writing, with real heart.

Holly Smale’s Geek Girl books also take a serious look at real emotions beneath a glitzy surface and readers will also enjoy Zoella’s Girl Online series. ~ Andrea Reece

The RNA judges said: "Love Song is an intelligent and thoughtful read which handles the all-consuming emotion of a first crush rather beautifully."
