Paperback

Honest and heart-warming tale for modern teenage from the best-selling author of How to Train Your Parents. Perfectly pitched for digitally-obsessed teens, this upbeat comedy explores teen romance in the Age of the App and the value of real-life connections. Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 12+

Joe has never been 'cool' or 'hot' – he'd rather slog over a brand new recipe than spend hours obsessing over an Instagram image. When dating app Mate Match is launched to connect with teens at other schools, suddenly Joe has got to learn the rules of the dating game and big sister Georgia and her boyfriend Aaron are on hand to teach him everything he needs to know. And it seems the trick to success is to lie – about being in a band, about his hobbies (no cooking to be mentioned!), even his name. But when Joe gets matched with self-obsessed stunner Tania, his lies look set to unravel fast. Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 12+

Author

Pete Johnson, Illustrated by Jen Collins

When Pete Johnson was little, he was such a fan of The Hundred and One Dalmatians that he wrote to the author Dodie Smith. The pair began to exchange letters and she was the first one to encourage him to write. He has since gone on to become one of the UK’s top comedy writers for children, collecting numerous awards, including a shortlisting for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize.
