About the Author:

Dawn O'Porter is a broadcaster, novelist and print journalist who lives in Los Angeles with her husband Chris, cat Lilu and dog Potato. She has made numerous documentaries about all sorts of things: polygamy, childbirth, Geisha, body image, breast cancer and even the movie DIRTY DANCING. Dawn is currently a columnist for Glamour Magazine in the UK, and writes regularly for many other publications. Her first novel, PAPER AEROPLANES, was published by Hot Key Books in 2013, to critical acclaim. GOOSE is the sequel, and two more novels in the series are planned. She is also a highly prolific Tweeter (@hotpatooties) and manages her own website www.dawnoporter.co.uk. Dawn is obsessed with vintage clothing and can be seen in This Old Thing on C4, trying to convert high-streetaholics to the way of old threads. Dawn is also in the process of setting up her own clothing label, BOB (she also has a bob...)

Review:

Funny, touching and packed with cultural references, this is a must for anyone who has experienced the joy - and pain - of teenage friendship * Grazia * Dawn O'Porter's first novel is just as brilliant as you would expect . . . Funny, sad and incredibly poignant, it's the novel you wish you'd read at 15 * Stylist * Dawn O'Porter's debut novel is a treat that can be enjoyed by all ages' * Now * O'Porter perfectly captures the sometimes ludicrous complexities of adolescence, and everyone should relate to this heartbreakingly funny depiction of friendship and loss. * The Irish Times * A really gorgeous and nostalgic read * Marie Claire * She has nailed every high school girl's defining moments -- Jo Elvin, editor * Glamour * Brought us right back. And made us LOL. A lot! * Company * One of the best debut novels I've read. -- Alex Jones * The Mail on Sunday * A laugh out loud read. A heart-warming tale about two teenage friends * Sunday Express *

Book Description Hot Key Books, United Kingdom, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. It s the mid-1990s, and fifteen year-old Guernsey schoolgirls, Renee and Flo, are not really meant to be friends. Thoughtful, introspective and studious Flo couldn t be more different to ambitious, extroverted and sexually curious Renee. But Renee and Flo are united by loneliness and their dysfunctional families, and an intense bond is formed. Although there are obstacles to their friendship (namely Flo s jealous ex-best friend and Renee s growing infatuation with Flo s brother), fifteen is an age where anything can happen, where life stretches out before you, and when every betrayal feels like the end of the world. For Renee and Flo it is the time of their lives. With graphic content and some scenes of a sexual nature, Paper Aeroplanes is a gritty, poignant, often laugh-out-loud funny and powerful novel. It is an unforgettable snapshot of small-town adolescence and the heart-stopping power of female friendship. Bookseller Inventory # CBL9781471400360
