Ally's World #2: Dates, Double Dates and Big, Big Trouble

Ally’s feeling inadequate. Her only romantic experience amounts to a burping-in-mouth scenario with Keith Brownlow, but Kyra’s only been in Crouch End two seconds and she’s got herself a boyfriend! Even Ally’s dad seems to be ‘dating’ – has he forgotten all about her mum, who is still travelling the world? Ally will have to engage in some sneaky espionage to discover the awful and cringe-worthy truth! Meanwhile, she can’t decide what’s more worrying: not having a boyfriend, or being invited on a double date with Kyra, Ricardo and Ricardo’s mystery mate.

  • This book is fantastic, Karen McCombie is not as well known as authours such as Jacqueline Wilon or Cathy Cassidy, but in all honusty she is better then Jacqueline WIlson and ties alongside Cathy Cassidy.

    This book is proably best for ages 10+, Children younger may find it boring. Easy to get into and good choice of words.

    Ally lives in the chaotic house fit to bust with her 2 sisters, brother, dad, 3 or 4 cats, 2 dogs, stick insects and much more!

    Her mum is traveling round the world, and sometimes all Ally wants is to speak to her-One weeks shes in Italy, the next week New York. So poor Ally has no recoreded adress to send her letters to.

    When Ally’s dad starts to act strangely, no one really knows whats going on. So they try to find out-Following, sarcastic questions, pure puzzledness. But is her brother, Tor, really as clueless as they think?

    A book that has everything a girl wants! Love, emotion, friends, family…And loads more!
