Description

Introducing The Valentines - Happy Girl Lucky, the first book in the hilarious new romantic-comedy series by Holly Smale, author of the bestselling and critically acclaimed Geek Girl books. Fame - it runs in the family! The Valentine sisters - Hope, Faith and Mercy - have everything: fame, success, money and beauty. But what Hope wants most of all is love, and it doesn't matter how far she has to go to find it. Except real life isn't like the movies. Unless of course you're a Valentine . . .

Author Biography

HOLLY SMALE wanted to write from the age of five when she discovered that books didn't grow on trees like apples. Her passion for stories led her on a number of adventures, including modelling, teaching children in Japan, PR and backpacking across dozens of countries around the world. She has a degree in English literature and an MA in Shakespeare and Feminism from Bristol University. The Valentines series is the blockbusting follow-up to the number-one, internationally bestselling and acclaimed Geek Girl series, which sold over three million copies in thirty languages and won the Teen and Young Adult category of the Waterstones Children's Book Prize. Happy Girl Lucky is the first in a brand-new series that follows the famous Valentine sisters.
