From the author of the Richard and Judy Children's Books winner, Girl, Missing comes the final instalment in a terrific teenage love story trilogy, which captures the ups, downs and at times almost unbearable emotions of being in love. To keep her away from Luke, Eve’s dad sends her to a convent school while Luke himself goes back to England. Luke misses Eve and wants her back but, in her absence, he turns to someone else. When Eve does appear, she still wants to be with Luke. In fact, she wants him to be her ‘first’. Luke has to live with her sorrow that she’s not as he tells the story of how the two of them do get back together in their older, more mature and sexual relationship.

To read the trilogy in order start with Six Steps to a Girl then Three’s a Crowd and end with The One and Only.
