This is a fabulous feel good book, full of humour and engrossing twists. The characters are brilliant, especially Suzy and her best friend from home Maddie, and you quickly feel as if you know them. It was great to see Suzy adapting to her new environment. I loved her honesty - her descriptions of her classmates as Stepford students, the way she admitted to being unable to recognise herself and 'missing the kicks' even when she was desperately trying (and largely managing) to fit in with the new crowd. There were loads of page-turning intrigue and some sad moments, too.
About the Author
Sara Hantz started writing when she ran out of degrees to study and decided it was much more fun to make things up than to comment on dry academics. Born in England, she moved to New Zealand a few years ago and then onto Australia. The Second Virginity of Suzy Green
is Sara's first novel.
