The Summer switch-Off

Luna, Rory and Jodie are supposed to be having the time of their lives. Instead they're all completely bloody miserable.

Luna thought her first year at uni was perfect - until her relationship broke up, and she realised her old school friends might be ghosting her. She's never felt so lonely.

Rory's passion is art (and promoting it on her social media), but she wants to fit in with her sensible family, so she's signed up to study law. It sounds like the most boring thing on earth.

And as for Jodie - she's put her all into getting top marks at uni, but she can't remember the last time she had a night out - or a date. Her life is great on paper, but she's exhausted. Is this the right path for her after all?

In desperate need of an escape, the girls book themselves on a holiday that's meant to be perfect for solo travellers. But the idyllic resort of Casa Dorada is actually a digital detox retreat - which means NO PHONES! And that's not even the biggest disaster waiting for them . . .

Will it be a summer the girls will never forget - or one they'd rather not remember?

A sweet, funny, relatable coming-of-age story from bestselling author Beth Reekles, author of The Kissing Booth - perfect for fans of Beth O'Leary and Emily Henry.

The idea of a digital detox holiday wouldn't be my cup of tea, personally - but it made for such an interesting plot device, I couldn't resist! And I love the idea of the 'geographic cure', aka the idea that going somewhere else will fix all your problems, although it isn't always that simple, as Luna, Rory and Jodie are set to find out!

This is my first foray back into YA since The Kissing Booth series, which is really exciting - although you might notice that the characters in this book are a bit more 'New Adult', so please note this one is for slightly older readers!
