HOW HARD CAN LOVE BE?

We are uber excited to reveal that the second book in the Normal Series – HOW HARD CAN LOVE BE? will be published in February 2016! THE book for Valentine’s Day!

And here’s the super-gorg cover in all it’s glory:

Isn’t it a beaut?

All about HOW HARD CAN LOVE BE?

All Amber wants is a little bit of
love. Her mum has never been the caring type, even before she moved to
California, got remarried and had a personality transplant. But Amber’s
hoping that spending the summer with her can change all that.

And then there’s prom king Kyle, the guy all the girls want. Can he
really be interested in anti-cheerleader Amber? Even with best friends
Evie and Lottie’s advice, there’s no escaping the fact: love is hard.

And there’s even more – there will be EXCLUSIVE EXTRA CONTENT limited to the first print run of HHCLB.

Bring on February 2016!

Introducing: A Boy and a Biscuit

Here at the Usborne YA Shelfie HQ,
there’s nothing we like better than nattering about our favourite
characters while enjoying a biscuit or three. It only seemed logical
therefore that we brighten up Monday afternoons with:

A BOY AND A BISCUIT or A GIRL AND A GATEAU

Every
Monday, we will be sharing one of our favourite characters, along with
the biscuit we think they’re most suited to. So, without further ado, I
am very pleased to introduce our first boy, and our first biscuit…

BOY: Noah

BOOK: Soulmates by Holly Bourne

BISCUIT: Jaffa Cake (we are, for the purposes of this post, counting this as a biscuit…)

REASON: When Noah, the mysterious but incredibly attractive guitarist, locks eyes with Poppy at a gig, we fell head-over-heels in love more quickly than you can say “McVitie’s”.

Like Noah, the Jaffa Cake has really nailed the whole “dark and brooding” thing on the outside. But we’re not fooled by that, no. We know both Noah and the Jaffa are full of sweetness and jam on the inside, with hearts of (orangey) gold. Noah is also very dependable but not afraid to show his emotions, which we thought was perfectly matched with the Jaffa’s solid but subtle cake base.

Noah, meet your biscuit match!

And ready yourselves for much more biscuity excellence next Monday when we reveal our next #BoyandaBiscuit…
