Everybody at school has heard that some of the French exchange students will be boys, and all the girls are desperate to host one of them. All except Vix, who isn't bothered who she gets.

I don't normally read teen fiction, but as I want to write in this genre I thought I ought to study it! This book certainly got a good review in the newspaper, and I can well understand why as it really gets under the skin of the various characters. It is really British, being set around Camden in London, when a group of exchange students arrive from France.
I read an article about the author, Hilary Freeman. She suffers from MS, and this certainly features in the book, which is interesting.
