Another wonderful romance from Jay Northcote
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
4.5* This book makes you smile with its little hint of magic and mystery, the humour and the full flush of young love.
I love body swapping stories so this was right up my alley and it was very well done, a ‘realistic’ twist to get two best friends who’d fallen apart from each other to realise that what they’d had at the age of 14 really was something special.
Olly and Scott were well rounded characters, each unique with their own distinct voice and expressions. The setting was also firmly laid down with the English flavour of secondary school, A Levels (arghhhhhh they’re a nightmare!), football and school plays, and the excitement of university.
There’s not a lot in the way of steam, it’s light as I’d expect when the MCs are just 18 but what there is has passion and emotion and a feeling of true connection.
Jay is one of my favourite authors and I don’t think I’ve ever failed to be entertained by one of her stories.
