My name is Rebecca Rafferty, and I know that this is going to be the best summer ever.
Well, maybe.
On the plus side, holidays mean no school for three months. And my band Hey Dollface are going to a cool summer camp where we will (hopefully) learn how to become total rock stars. Which is all good, obviously.
But there are problems too. There are summer exams, a band of mean boys out to spoil our fun, my friend Cass’s love life is complicated and my own love life just doesn’t really exist at all ...

The third installment of the award-winning series about Rebecca Rafferty.

a warm, cheerful, and well-paced book

we need a fourth instalment to see if romance will blossom between Rebecca and Sam!

a writer in tune with today’s young Irish

Irish Times

an attractive lightness of touch … sharply entertaining

Irish Times

it is difficult to handle such young teenage themes without being patronising or pompous, but Carey admirably avoids both temptations, resulting in a novel refreshing not just in its good-natured humour – there are some delightfully sly and mischievous one-liners  - but also in its unsentimental endorsement of youthful dreams and aspirations

Irish Times

the pages in Carey’s novel in which her young lesbian character announces her coming out to her friends and in which they give their reactions are superbly written: tone is everything, and it could not be better handled than it is here

Irish Times

perfect for holiday reading

Armadillo Magazine

a bright and breezy read featuring some inventive songs and a main character who isn’t a total drip and doesn’t need a man to make her relevant

Sunday Business Post

a gentle introduction to feminism

Sunday Business Post

a hilarious new book, perfect for the summer. Cleverly written, witty and smart

a must read

Rebecca Rafferty … is something of a Books for Keeps favourite

Once again, author Anna Carey delivers another lively dose of teen fiction, that feels true throughout and entertains from the first page to the last

It’s honest, real, touching, a terrific piece of writing

the book ends with the stage set for a further adventure which promises to be equally entertaining. Rock on, Rebecca!

full of real feel-good fun, a touch of romance and is a wonderfully accurate reflection on girly teen life. Young teens and older ones too will love it

charming, uplifting story

in chatty diary style, the third Rebecca title from Dublin’s Anna Carey will please early teen fans of the likes of Sarah Webb and Cathy Cassidy
