Description

Renee and Flo are the most unlikely of friends. Introspective and studious Flo and outspoken, wild, and sexually curious Renee have barely spoken in their years of going to school together in Guernsey, a small British island off the coast of France. And yet, when tragedy strikes, it is only wild child Renee, who lost her mother at a young age, who is able to comfort a grieving Flo. The girls form an intense bond that sees them through a host of deeply relatable, wince-inducing experiences—drunken snogging; a seance in which clueless friends offer to summon Renee's mother; dating a guy for free fish and chips. But toxic mean girls and personal betrayals threaten to tear the girls' delicate new friendship apart. In this gripping debut, Dawn O'Porter shines an unflinchingly honest, humorous light on female friendship, lost innocence, and that moment when you are teetering on the threshold of adult life.Praise for Paper Airplanes "Dawn O'Porter was a teenager in her past life. Well, duh! How else could she have gotten this bitch-perfect, debut novel so right! Paper aeroplanes is spot on! This teen friendship, is brutal and beautiful, flawed and forgiving. The angst and anguish of adolescence are made safer by her talented hand. Wish she had written this when I was 15!" --Jamie Lee Curtis "Poignant and edgy, this exploration of lively female friendships rises high." --Kirkus Reviews
