Publisher: Harper (April 14, 2015)

The summer bestseller from the immensely popular Lindsey Kelk

Tess Brookes has always been a Girl with a Plan. But when the Plan goes belly up, she’s forced to reconsider.

After accidently answering her flatmate Vanessa’s phone, she decides that since being Tess isn’t going so well, she might try being Vanessa. With nothing left to lose, she accepts Vanessa’s photography assignment to Hawaii – she used to be an amateur snapper, how hard can it be? Right?

But Tess is soon in big trouble. And the gorgeous journalist on the shoot with her, who is making it very clear he’d like to get into her pants, is an egotistical monster. Far from home and in someone else’s shoes, Tess must decide whether to fight on through, or ‘fess up and run…

My thoughts about About a Girl ~~

‘I never meant for things to get so out of hand. I’d lost my job. I’d lost the love of my life. My mum wasn’t talking to me. My best friend was epically pissed off. My flatmate probably had a hit out on me by now, and in twenty-four hours I would be homeless. But, you know, swings and roundabouts.’

These are the opening lines of About a Girl. How can you just not want to keep reading to find out how this poor girl is going to survive? And how on earth did she get herself into this mess?

Tess is a great character who is tired of her life and when an opportunity presents itself for her to shake things up in her life, why wouldn't she take advantage of that? The story is a great adventure as we see Tess trying to 'be' Vanessa and the predicaments she gets herself into. 

‘”I find the more you get to know about a person, the more disappointed you end up,” he replied. “Right now, I like you, you like me, we’re having a good time. A very good time. I say we leave it at that before someone finds out something they don’t want to know.”’

When Tess is faced with some serious life choices, she isn't really sure what she wants anymore. And I'm not sure which direction I would advise her to take either. Luckily, Lindsey has a sequel planned for Tess, What a Girl Wants. I can't wait to read it and to venture back into Tess's world. I really need to find out which choice she made.
