BFFs True Colours by Holly Robbins

True Colours - BFFs 3
Ellie, Jas, Nisha and Lexie are BFFs who've managed to survive a whole first term at secondary school together - even if there have been a few upsets along the way! Nisha's stepsister Poppy is coming to stay whilst her mother is away. But Nisha's excitement quickly evaporates when Poppy arrives. Poppy is intent on doing everything she can to make life difficult for Nisha. How can she make the others understand what Poppy is doing, when she is as sweet as sugar with everyone else?

This is the third book in the new series, BFFs,by Stripe Publishing and I have reviewed the first two books here . As I have already said these books are great for girls who are pre teen and have a close knit group of friends who are regularly having 'disagreements or for those who will be moving up into secondary school in September.

This book begins in the January term, following the Christmas holidays, when they are all settling back into school life after the Christmas performances. Nisha is excited to find that her step fathers daughter, Poppy, is coming to stay. Nisha is very excited about this and is looking forward to meeting her. However, when they do meet, they are not the good friends that Nisha hopes. There are problems both at home and in school and the other three friends find it difficult about what to do for the best. There are other smaller stories going on through the story and characters which were met in the first two books also make appearances in this book - there is a fashion show in the local shopping centre, the school disco and there is also a first boyfriend for one of the girls.

This series is getting better and better with each new release. My ten year old daughter is enjoying these books and is already looking forward to the next release. There are all the elements girls of that age are interested in - shopping, make up, music and friendships.

Thank you to the publishers, Stripes Publishing, for sending me the book to review.
