BOOK REVIEW YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE BY JESS VALLANCE

Gracie Dart has always worked hard and she’s got a wall covered with revision timetables and French verbs to prove it. But now GCSEs are behind her and she suddenly starts to think: what was the POINT of it all?

When Gracie thinks she’s dying of a disgusting tropical illness, she starts to worry she’s been wasting her best years being sensible. It’s like people say: you only live once – so isn’t it about time she started LIVING?
(OK, so the tropical illness turned out to be a fake-tan miscalculation. Anyone could make the same mistake.)

When Gracie decides to do something, she does it properly. Gracie Dart is about to live out her dreams. However embarrassing.

Firstly a big thank you to Clare at bonnier /hot key books for my proof copy.

I whizzed through this read .

Funny and quirky.

A great ya read exploring all those big questions you have as a teenager and even at my age!

Life affirming and completely relatable.

A story of being brave and stepping out your comfort zone

I look forward to reading more about Gracie and her adventures.
