Mates, Dates and Cosmic Kisses by Cathy Hopkins
Izzie has met the boy of her dreams, but why doesn't he call her? She spends her time waiting, wondering, and checking her horoscope. Luckily she has Nesta and Lucy, her two best friends, to get her through her boy troubles. The three girls are Londoners, and this is just one of many books about them. It's breezy and fun to read, and full of girl power (in the end). While not nearly as hilarious as Louise Rennison's Angus, Thongs and Full Frontal Snogging series, it's a good read for girls who want to read about what it's like to start dating and worrying about boys. It doesn't seem to matter what order you read these books in—the stories stand alone.
