I would definitely recommend reading this book if you love fashion, Franny has a clear passion for it and it's really interesting to see her learn has she goes through her fashion BTEC at college. I completely understood her love for Vogue, although my own collection of issues (consisting of one issue of French Vogue) is nothing compared to Franny's, I'm planning to try and collect issues from as many different countries as possible (perhaps buying one from England, the place where I actually live, would be a good idea).
The plot of The Worst Girlfriend in the World was really enjoyable. I actually ended up reading the whole book in one day (something which I seem to be doing more and more often for some reason) as I was excited to find out how it ended. And I'm glad it ended the way it did, with Franny and Alice forgiving each other while understanding that their friendship would never quite be the same and knowing that they would both have to put in effort to make it work. I think that showed really good character development.

First, relating back to the scrambled eggs, I'm going to be doing more cooking. Since, like I said, I'm planning to go to university in autumn, I thought it would be a good idea to make sure I could actually do more than make toast. Obviously I'm starting with the basics that I've never made before, like scrambled eggs.
Other things I plan to do this Summer include reading (a lot of reading, I want to read challenging and interesting books, like the classics, that will make me learn), writing (practice makes perfect, well, practice makes slightly better than before), and going on holiday with my family. I'm also hoping to volunteer at my local library. Generally, I'm just going to try and make the most of my time.
I hope you enjoy your Summer, and that the weather is good to you. And if you're going on holiday, bon voyage!
