The peerless Jacqueline Wilson serves up another pitch-perfect slice of fiction with this tender tale of first love and blossoming sexuality.
GROWING UP. FALLING IN LOVE. COMING OUT.
Frankie is nearly fourteen and teenage life certainly comes with its ups and downs. Her mum is seriously ill with MS and Frankie can feel herself growing up quickly, no thanks to Sally and her gang of bullies at school.
When Sally turns out to be not-so-mean after all, they strike up a friendship and are suddenly spending all of their time together.
But Frankie starts to wonder whether these feelings she has for Sally are stronger than her other friendships. Might she really be in love?
Frankie doesn't want Sally to just be her friend. She wants her to be her girlfriend. But does Sally feel the same?
The must-have new novel about falling in love for the first time from bestselling, much-loved children's author, Jacqueline Wilson, coming Spring 2020.

A powerful and important love story, this book explores coming of age and coming out. I hope it will give girls everywhere the courage and freedom to follow their hearts * Good Housekeeping *
There's a reason why Jacqueline Wilson has sold more than 40m books. Yet again she delivers a touching, bittersweet drama about ordinary, credible lives. The characterization is spot on, showing real insight into how today's youngsters think, talk and behave, and Frankie's story beautifully conveys the thrill of first love and the additional complications that being gay can bring to it * Financial Times *
I would have loved it as a younger teen. I'm so pleased for all the girls who will get to read this at the same age as Frankie and see themselves reflected in the pages * Lesbrary.com *
Whether you'll grab your hair in agony or cry silent tears for Frankie's broken heart, this one will stick with you for a while * The Nerd Daily *
