Starting Over by Cathy Hopkins


Format: Paperback


New term, new school – but India Jane isn’t looking forward to being the new girl in Year Eleven. Everyone else already has their circle of friends and India Jane feels like she’s on the outside looking in. At least she’s at the same school as Joe, the boy she met on holiday in Greece, and she’s hoping that they may become more than just friends.

But the paths of true love and friendship never seem to run very smoothly…

This is the second book in the Cinnamon Girl series by Cathy Hopkins. Read my review for the first book, This Way to Paradise.

This book is just as good as the first one and is just as good at dealing with issues that teenagers may feel.

So we’re back with India Jane and she is just going in to Year Eleven at a new school again. It’s understandable that she is nervous, I’ve never had to experience this but I can imagine that it wouldn’t be the best feeling ever.

It’s a great book and I was drawn in with how lost she was feeling and how she didn’t want to tell anyone how bad it was. And then the arrival of her best friend, that she had to leave in Ireland, turns everything around and by the end of the book everything is going great.
