What’s it about you ask? Here’s a short summary for you:
Four friends pledge to make this summer regret-free but will it be that simple?
After their exams, four sixteen-year-old best friends pledge to live a summer regret-free, taking risks however much it scares them: Sasha agrees to spend the holiday in Geneva, with the father she hasn’t seen for six years, but is not expecting his new girlfriend, or the boy in the cafe. Shy homebody Hetal decides to go to science camp, and has to find a new competitive spirit. After Nell lost her arm in an accident her mother is scared to let her out of the house – so to do what she wants she will have to lie to her parents. Fostered Cam goes to look for her birth father. What will she find?
As all these choices become difficult, even dangerous, they will need each
other for the strength to face the future.

Kate Mallinder lives with her husband,
four children and a grumpy cat near
Ashby-de-la-Zouch in Leicestershire. She grew up in Solihul and went to college in Leeds. She wrote this book as part of her own ‘no regrets’ pledge, along with trying to surf, which didn’t go so well. If left to her own devices, she’d live on a window seat with a good book and a never-ending cup of tea. The Summer of No Regrets is her first book.
You can see Kate at CHCC YA Fest on 12th May.
