Summary

<>Sam and Hannah have only he holidays to find 'The One’...which is their lobster....

Instead of their summer holidays being epic, Sam and Hannah’s summer holidays is turning out to be very awkward....

They must navigate social misunderstandings, the plotting of well-meaning friends, and their own fears of being virgins to find happiness. But fate is at work to bring them together, and in the end it all boils down to love.

Partying, alcohol, drugs, attraction and sex

After I'd heard so many awesome things about this book, I was sure that I would enjoy it.

But I didn't.

I just wasn't like this as a teen. I was a different kind of crazy, not the festival and holidays abroad type. I found it difficult to relate to the characters.

It made me realise that I'm getting pretty sick of reading about money, even if there was a token plea by Lucy that her Gran didn't have much money, yet still got her a Tiffany's necklace.

What really, really got to me was the "AAB is bad thing" thing. Sam was a failure because he only got AAB in his A Levels. He just got nearly perfect freaking grades. Cry me a freaking river.

Saying that, the narrators did a terrific job with this!
