Secret Letters, First Kisses, and Falling Head Over Heels (Ladybirds Series #2)
In Love Bomb, a companion novel to Flirty Dancing and the second book in Jenny McLachlan's Lady Birds Series, Betty navigates new loves and friendships with help from her late mother's letters.
Betty Plum has never been in love. She's never even kissed a boy. But when Toby starts school it's like Betty has been hit with a thousand of Cupid's arrows. A bomb has exploded—a love bomb.
More than ever, Betty wishes her mom didn't die when Betty was a baby. She really needs her mom here to ask her advice. And just when she misses her most, that's when she finds hidden letters for just these moments: letters about what your first kiss should feel like and what real love truly is. Although her mom isn't really there, Betty feels closer to her than ever.
Jenny McLachlan's follow-up to Flirty Dancing will have you in both fits of laughter and tears.
