LoveReading Expert Review of SKIN

The frustrations, self-awareness and thought processes of being a teenager is encapsulated brilliantly in this book, showing the high and lows of a family holiday with a holiday crush thrown in.

This book hooked me from the start, the writing style, the characters, all fantastic. Each chapter left me wanting to read more and I ended up reading the second half of the book all in one go as I just had to find out what happened. Thirteen-year-old Chloe and her family, Mum, Dad, and younger sister Ella go on holiday every summer to a caravan by the sea where they meet another family, the Rossi’s. For Chloe, this year is going to be different as she has decided that she likes one of the Rossi boys, who is a similar age to her. It then starts the awkward coming of age scenarios which brought me right back to when I went through similar myself! The frustrations, self-awareness and thought processes of being a teenager is encapsulated brilliantly in this book, showing the high and lows of a family holiday with a holiday crush thrown in. A highly recommended book, and I cannot wait to read more from this author!

SKIN Synopsis

Two families holiday together every year; nothing ever changes. However, 13-year-old Chloe wants this year to be different. After all, she’s not a kid anymore, even if they all treat her like one. As the heat rises, things may never be quite the same for two families who are in the process of growing up. This is a story for anyone who has been stuck on a boring family holiday. This is a story for those who remember their first kiss, in all its embarrassing glory and also for those still waiting for it. This is a story about change - even if it’s not the change you were expecting.
