Review: LOBSTERS BY TOM ELLEN & LUCY IVISON




Synopsis: Sam and Hannah only have the holidays to find 'The One'. Their lobster. But instead of being epic, their summer is looking awkward. They must navigate social misunderstandings, the plotting of well-meaning friends, and their own fears of being virgins for ever to find happiness. But fate is at work to bring them together. And in the end, it all boils down to love.


Review: Ugh! Being a teenager was so much hard work! Tom Ellen and Lucy Ivison capture this perfectly. Lobsters feels like it was written by teens, how did you remember how awkward and embarrassing it can be so perfectly?!

After reading a couple of books that made me ball my eyes out, Kendra Leighton suggested that I gave this one ago as it wasn't so heavy going. Thanks for the suggestion, it was certainly a good read! 

Although Lobsters manages to take you back to all the awful parts of being a teen it also makes you laugh along with some brilliantly funny moments. A real pick me up after a long day. 

From page one you find yourself wanting to shout at the book because you want Sam and Hannah to stop being so stupid and just get together already! The thing is though, everything the characters think and feel are thoughts that most teenagers will have.

A great read for teens and adults alike. There are moments that will have you squirming in your seat and seconds later have you crying with laughter. 

I just need to know what happens next! Tell me everything works out great for Sam and Hannah, please?!
