REVIEW: Lobsters by Tom Ellen and Lucy Ivison

Can you remember what it felt like to fall in love as a teenager?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you can’t, this book will bring it all flooding back. Sam and Hannah are on the verge of everything: getting their A level results, heading off to uni, and losing their virginity. They meet at a party and instantly connect, but actually finding the courage to ‘fess up to their mutual attraction proves a lot harder than they think. An hilarious and frank comedy of errors that doesn’t talk down to its teen audience (and yes, it will strike a chord with parents, too). 

Chicken House, out now. Age: 14+
