    One thought on “Second Best Friend”

    1. I won a signed copy of this book in a Twitter giveaway so a massive thanks to the publishers Barrington Stoke for picking me as one of the winners! This book is on the publishing line for reluctant readers or readers who are dyslexic. Disclaimer- I personally am not dyslexic however, I am on the bloggers mailing list for this publisher and am very happy to review all of the YA books that they publish!This is the first book I've read by Non Pratt and it certainly won't be my last. It follows two [...]

    2. I love reading books by Non Pratt. I've read Truth or Dare, so I jumped at the chance of reading Second Best Friend. I think that a lot of us might see our self in this story. Who doesn't want to be liked? We all did at school. Jade has a kind of perfect best friend. Yes we've all been there and had what we thought was a best friend. Jade wants to dump her boyfriend Rob, and of course Becky, who is Jade's best friend gives Jade full encouragement to split up from Rob. Wait for it, something happ [...]

    3. Let’s get one thing straight: I am absolutely a Non Pratt fanboy, so if this review sounds a little too gushing, that’s because it is. Pratt’s books are a rich, tasty dessert to me: eminently satisfying, far longer-lasting than candy, and sometimes even a little bit good—but not too good—for you. Second Best Friend is no exception. Like Unboxed, her previous novella from Barrington Stoke, Second Best Friend is an encapsulated, somewhat brief story about a specific point in time. Wherea [...]

    4. Second Best Friend is another brilliantly accessible and relatable contemporary story from YA favourite Non Pratt, all about female friendship, rivalry and self-confidence. The novella features Jade and Becky, best friends for years and partners in crime, but the girls' friendship is put to the test when Jade's ex-boyfriend leads Becky to believe that everyone thinks she's the less talented, less pretty, less interesting of the pair. Jade is voted in as Party Leader ahead of the school's General [...]

    5. This book is just sheer brilliance. It gives a raw and honest look into the sometimes inexplicably complex relationship that you have with a best friend in a way that only Non Pratt could do it.Jade and Becky have always been best friends. That is until they are both thrust into the limelight with their school General Election (which I thought was a brilliant way to give younger readers an insight into how politics can work, by the way!). This book is all about those moments where we find oursel [...]

    6. A sharp, brilliantly-observed YA story about the insecurities we all have about comparing ourselves to our most beloved friends. Jade feels second-best to her best friend Becky, so goes all out to beat her in the school election. I loved this book, and I love Non's writing style. Bravo! (12+)*Please note: this review is meant as a recommendation only. Please do not use it in any marketing material, online or in print, without asking permission from me first. Thank you!*

    7. A great read about friendship, rivalry, insecurities and the pressure society places on girls to compete against one another.

    8. A brief reminder of the importance of friendship, and the fact that you shouldn't base your self-worth on the opinions of others. If you loved Non Pratt's Unboxed, you'll probably love Second Best Friend even more! The only thing that could have improved it would have been a better ending - the way it finishes is startlingly abrupt, and it would have been nice to see the story finished a little more neatly.EDIT 08/02/18: I wasn't planning on writing a full-length review for Second Best Friend, [...]

    9. Non Pratt continuously brings out books with spookily relatable characters. It’s people you either have in your life or you relate to on a personal level. With Second Best Friend I really felt like I understood Jade and I think there will be many other readers like me. Comparing yourself to others is almost automatic and when you compare yourself to your best friend(s) it’s tough not to let things get to you.I really enjoyed reading Second Best Friend. As a novella it’s brilliantly execute [...]

    10. I love Non Pratt, so much so that a few weeks ago I wrote a short post about just how much I love her books. Pratt writes the most wonderful characters, teenagers who feel real with relatable problems.I think Second Best Friend is her most honest book so far. Jade and Becky are best friends, matching with blonde hair and interchangeable wardrobes. But when the boy Jade breaks up with tells her he only pursued her because Becky turned him down, Jade begins to suffer an inferiority complex. Why do [...]

    11. I love these books. They’re like a brilliant hug from a friend. Short, honest, brilliant. Non is an actual angel and her friendships are always the best.

    12. First read (5th December 2017): ‪5★‬A wonderful short story about friendships, politics and rivalry. Jade is determined to win the school election following a comment from her ex, even if it means losing her best friend in the process. Jade reminded me a lot of myself when I was at school, and her character was so wonderfully written. Although it’s only a short story there was so much packed into it, but it was still so believable. I’ve read short stories before that haven’t got the [...]

    13. I think this book explored the topics of insecurity, inferiority and jealousy really, really well! I don't necessarily think they are talked about, explicitly, enough in YA, so it was really nice to see an honest depiction. Again, I love Non Pratt's super simple, clever writing style and this book being published in dyslexia-friendly form is beyond awesome.Firstly I should say that boys like Becky's ex (whose name has escaped me, and good riddance!!) who make comments like he did are GROSS. I ju [...]

    14. "There are some things better left unsaid, even to your best mate."Jade and Becky have been best friends for years, but when they are unexpectedly pitted against one another in a school election, they are forced to spend time apart and directly compete against each other. For Jade, this means seeing her friendship with Becky in a whole different light. Where she was once in her best friend's shadow, she is now suddenly the centre of attention, which causes conflict between the pair and their cla [...]

    15. My favourite Non Pratt book to date, deals with the difficulties of friendship and comparing yourself to others in a very relatable way, and I loved seeing the characters involved in student politics. Published by Barrington Stoke, this book is designed to be accessible and 'super-readable YA'. Printed on tinted paper in a dyslexia-friendly typeface. It's also a great story, with a gorgeous cover.

    16. I had higgggh expectations for this. Mostly because the title really struck a chord with me. It obviously didn't model my feelings exactly, but I loved the story and couldn't stop reading. The message is great, it's so easy to get in your head about friends and status. The feelings of the character were relatable (to me), and the author dealt with it kindly but also honestly.

    17. One of those books where, when you’re reading, you just stop, put your head in your hands and shout “No! Please don’t!” I was totally immersed in the character of Jade, I felt like I was in her skin. Sympathetic and penetrating emotional dissection of the perils of living in a competitive world.

    18. A cute easy read on a subject I think a lot of people can relate to. Who doesn’t compare themselves to the best people in their lives and finds fault only because someone else wanted to hurt them? Who doesn’t have insecurities that others know and want to exploit to try and remove their own hurt? This book is super relatable and though short, gives a good perspective from all sides.

    19. Predictably brilliant stuff from Non Pratt, one of our best writers of contemporary YA. The ending felt a bit abrupt, but the whole thing is very short of course!

    20. My first review of 2018Author of Truth or Dare, Remix and my absolute favourite Trouble, Non Pratt delivers another brilliant and honestly refreshing novella on friendship, rivalry, jealousy and politics. It's a story that everyone will relate too. What happens when your boyfriend your going out with, utterly hot and the popular guy of the school say's: I'm only going out with you because [insert your best friend] didn't."? What happens when the person you just dumped wanted your best friend all [...]
