What a super summer read! Radiant with romance, family drama, sparkling dialogue and glorious golden oldies (I especially adored octogenarian artist, great aunt Odette), Tasha Harrison’s The Thing About Lemons is sweet, sunny and oh-so funny.

After making a massive mistake (kissing Jackson, her best friend’s handsome boyfriend), Ori is shipped off to France to stay with her estranged grandad Claude, a musician and lifelong ladies’ man she’s only met a few times in her life. Suffice to say, Ori’s not looking forward to it. Thankfully, though, Ori’s outlook brightens when they collect her force-of-nature great aunt Odette en route. And things become brighter still when they pick up a “quality fitbit” (Ori’s assessment) hitch-hiker, who turns out to be the grandson of Claude’s friends.

Just as things hot up with said fitbit while they cool down in a river, Jackson turns up with Ori’s close mate, Ravi. Cue a whole lot of romantic complications, alongside some big family revelations.

Brilliantly pitched for younger teenagers, with lots of LOL moments and relatable romantic dilemmas, The Thing About Lemons exudes gorgeously engaging wholesomeness, along with family secrets, newly-discovered deep connections, and the budding possibility of new love. C’est magnifique!
