Billy and me | Review


Billy and me by Giovanna Fletcher is a beautifully written novel about a girl called Sophie and how she copes with her life when she is put in the public eye after falling in love with her boyfriend, Billy. Her is a small extract from the blurb "Their relationship throws Sophie right into the spotlight after years of shying away from attention. Can she handle the constant scrutiny that comes with being with Billy? And most of all, is she ready for her secret heartbreak to be discovered and shared with the nation?". 
I absolutely love this book because it shows Sophie's relationship with Billy, her mum and her friend Molly. I also love the book because Sophie is just a regular girl who meets the love of her life in her small home town. I love that there are different topics within the book, it talks about Sophie's childhood, and how her relationship with her loved ones changes over time.
Not to spoil the ending, but you find out Sophie's secret which she has kept from Billy and the new world she's been caught up in, and you then start to understand why Sophie didn't want to leave her mum and go to university. I think Giovanna was able to use some of her own knowledge of being in the public eye to give a lot of depth to Sophie and to show that its not always easy to be with a celebrity.
I would strongly advise people to read this book as it is so well written and you can really connect on some levels with all the characters. In may 2014 Giovanna Fletcher is releasing her second book called "You're the one that I want", I can't wait to get my copy and no doubt fall in love with her new book.

Bye for now xxx
