4½ Stars
When I discovered the synopsis for this one, I had assumed it was another light and fluffy teen romance, but it was so much more. Not since The Year Nick McGowan Came to Stay, have I laughed so much. Snorting, unbridled and unattractive laughing, it was brilliant. Bea is the shy girl who has so much to say but lacks the confidence to speak out. I absolutely adored Bea, her inner thoughts and narrative were delivered with composure and a comedic timing that most authors would struggle to maintain, all from a debut author in Jenny McLachlan.

Flirty Dancing was incredibly engaging and entertaining, but also deals with intimidation, a first love, self confidence, and celebrates the unique, the quirky and the outrageously entertaining. It allows readers to experience a sense of family and belonging, while taking a lighthearted and heartwarming approach. I'm thrilled that this will be part of a series, following each one of the original Ladybirds. From the mock dance troupe The Panty Liners, to Bea's grandmother in what is clearly a pimp coat and cowboy hat, to adding 'arse' onto the end of nouns. Flirty Dancing was flirty, fabulous fun and I'm an instant fan of the fabulous Jenny McLachlan.
