“The Catcher in the Rye for the Digital Age” The Times
My name is Tori Spring. I love to sleep and blog. Last year — first with Charlie and before I had to deal with the harsh reality of A-levels and college questions and the fact that I actually have to start talking to people one day — I had friends. Things were very different I think, but it's all over now.
Now there is the loner. And Michael Holden.
I don't know what the loners are trying to do, and I don't care about Michael Holden. I really don't.
This incredible debut novel by outstanding young author Alice Oseman is perfect for fans of John Green, Rainbow Rowell, and all the truly honest authors.
