Is it me or should a thirteen year old girl NOT be on a beach making out with her boyfriend (thanks to "comprehensive kissing lessons" from her 17-year-old cousin Clover) in the first chapter of this book? Just the description - "I put one lege on either side of his and sit on his lap; then, leaning forward I tilt my head a little. Our lips connect. Zing! kThere goes the elctricity again, radiating out from my lips; within seconds, my whole body feels tingly. I open my mouth a bit and feel the w...more
This is one of the best books I've ever read. I love the way Sarah Webb creates the Lough Ine village and house on the island as in real life there is just a small pier and no shops or pubs to be seen! I can relate to the story because my Dad is from just up 'the road' and attended Lough Ine School when it was open (a lonnnnnnng time ago) and I know all the places she talks about in the story. I love the Amy Green books anyways!

This is a cute and quick read for younger teens about 13 -year-old Amy, a girl in Ireland whose family goes to an island for the summer. Clover, her older journalist cousin comes along, which makes it more fun Amy. There is a lot happening in the plot: Amy meets a new boy, has to decide whether or not to keep the boyfriend who gone to Italy, gets her first period, plays matchmaker for her grandfather, goes to an interview in Miami with her cousin, saves her brother from drowning - almost too muc...more

so awesome gramps almost got killed
Although I am well past my teenage years, I enjoyed this story of Amy Green and her quirky aunt Clover and I think it would especially appeal to girls aged from 12 to 16.

It is well written and covers some very topical subjects that most teenage girls will relate to - from parent's separation, boyfriend trouble to arguing with Mum and fashion.

This is a down to earth read, realistic problems and well rounded characters who have their faults yet are believable and likeable.

An enjoyable read that I...more
It has been quite awhile since I experienced teen girl angst over boys, clothes, social status, etc., and I am not particularly anxious to re-live that stage, so this book was not really my style, but I think it is a fun book for teen girls. The author is from Ireland, and seeing the different uses of words was fun. It is pretty shallow but does capture a lot of the physical and emotional upheaval in a young girl's life.
Amy is a cute character with a quirky family in a completely improbable set of circumstances. (Feel free to stick a fantasy sticker on this one). While it's a quick and painless read, there are loads of cute and zippy stories out there -- no real reason to choose this one over the others. It it's the only thing on the shelf, pick it up. Otherwise, keep browsing.
The book Ask Amy Green is great.I believe that this book would have text to self because i can really relate to this book. I'm sure many people can. My life is preety much the same comparing to this girls life. I understand how she feels and it just really compares twards my life .It's a very good book and i really enjoyed reading it.

I just finished listening to the audio of this book! It was so great! I can't get their Irish accents out of my head. :) This makes me especially happy because with the first book I was having trouble with that. But now I feel as if the characters are my friends.
I probably would have liked it more if I had read the first one, but it is a fun read. Perfect summer novel for middle-school girls, it has a little of everything -- boyfriends, break-ups, crushes, movie stars, and Jimmy Choos.

I started listening to Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging while I was reading this, and I am sad to say Amy is nowhere near as funny as Georgia. But the Amy Green series is fun, heart-warming, and delightfully age-appropriate.

Recommends it for: Girls in sixth class and upper
I thought it was v.funny and it cleverly illustrated the ups and downs of teen life. I am in secondary school now, first year and can relate to Amy in a lot of ways. So well done Sarah Webb 10/10 as usual
Just plain fun is the best way to describe this sequel to the author's first Amy Green title. Girls in grades 6 - 9 will find this a wonderful romp.
Great book if you are in middle school like me! I rate this 5 stars :)
Nothing special about this book, just your usual teen chick flick book.

Drama drama drama in this book! But pulls in the reader!
Cute enough, but not anything I'd seek out the sequel to.
I love this book !!
