Synopsis (from Goodreads)
Publisher: Barrington Stoke
Released: 15th of January 2018
Jade and Becky are best friends, but when Jade’s ex-boyfriend lets on that everyone thinks Becky is the better of the two, Jade finds herself noticing just how often she comes second to her best friend. There’s nothing Jade is better at than Becky.
So when Jade is voted in as Party Leader ahead of her school’s General Election only to find herself standing against Becky, Jade sees it as a chance to prove herself. If there’s one thing she can win, it’s this election – even if it means losing her best friend.
What I Have to Say
A very relatable story for anyone who's felt like they're not as good as their friend. No matter how much you manage to achieve, there's always this one person who will outshine you.
As always, Non Pratt's characters are beautiful, fun and easy to like. Even when they're doing bad things, you still understand them and want everything to be okay for them. This story was maybe a little shorter than I'd have liked, but it was a really great read and so easy to get into.
Being a Barrington Stoke book, this is a really good book for dyslexics to pick up. A great story with many dyslexic friendly features that make reading a pure joy.
My thanks go to Barrington Stoke and Nina Douglas for providing me with this copy to review.
