In case you're wondering, this is not a love story. "The Catcher in the Rye for the digital age" The Times My name is Tori Spring. I like to sleep and I like to blog. Last year - before all that stuff with Charlie and before I had to face the harsh realities of A-Levels and university applications and the fact that one day I really will have to start talking to people - I had friends. Things were very different, I guess, but that's all over now. Now there's Solitaire. And Michael Holden. I don't know what Solitaire are trying to do, and I don't care about Michael Holden. I really don't. This incredible debut novel by outstanding young author Alice Oseman is perfect for fans of John Green, Rainbow Rowell and all unflinchingly honest writers.
Victoria Spring is a pessimist who only likes blogging and sleeping. That is until she meets Michael Holden, an equally pessimistic student who shares her hatred of school. When an old friend appears in her friend group, Toria starts to notice a new blog called solitaire.co.uk. When the leader of this group plays mischievous pranks on the students at her school Toria is left at crossroads. She has to decide if she wants to make a difference or to stand by and watch. Oseman has created a wonderfully confusing story with a complicated plot.
