The last time I visited my local library, I started to feel a bit nostalgic about all the books I used to read & love when I was younger, and all the series from that time I never finished because I grew up. Karen McCombie was my most beloved author at that time, and I was very lucky to find all 7 books in Stella etc. series there. My summer can officially start, because they haven't got any worse! They are still incredibly fun and even sort of heart-warming (but that's probably just me now) ...more
Excelent. Good plot to the story. I would recommend it to ages 9-13

As a result of my devotion to McCombie's "Ally's World" series, I was very eager to read these books, to the point that I had my da order them for me online at a time when that wasn't really a thing. They weren't exactly easy to get my hands on. To this day, I'm still waiting to get voted off the island. Oh well.

Stella’s family have swapped a brilliant life in London for a sleepy seaside resort where the biggest thrill is a psycho seagull. How is shy-girl Stella going to fit in to this freaky little town, especially without her best friend Frankie?

Good book, plus there was a slight *!!!SWOONOER!!!* in it! And guess what? He has that lopsided smile that Edward always does, bonus! Hehe. It's kind of sad at the end thought because Stella likes him but she finds out that her best friend Frankie has actually liked him for juust as long and she's dating him! I'd reccomend it.
baca buku ini sambil siap2 belajar gimana caranya ngadepin abege...13 th itu berarti 2 tahun lagi untuk sulungku, 4 tahun untuk bungsuku yang kadang2 bahkan terlihat lebih tua 3 tahun dari umurnya. jadi memang harus mulai alert nih...

Baru tahu kalau cerita anak 13 tahun sedewasa ini. Maklum aja ya, terjemahan. But, it's kind a good book to read to young adults. :)
