    About "Kate Cann"

    1. Kate Cann

      When I was a child, I wanted to be a witch My first foray into writing was a series of nasty spells full of rats tails and bats wings Then, when I turned thirteen, I began keeping a lurid diary, full of adoration or loathing, depending on who I was writing about I used my later diaries for the Diving In trilogy I never thought I want to be a writer , but I loved books and writing At school, I was rubbish at just about everything but English, so I went on to Kent University where I did two degrees in English and American Literature At Kent, I fell dramatically in love with the man I m still married to We had loads of fights and adventures, but we kept coming back together He s still the person I most want to spend time with Awww My first proper job was in a publishing house, Time Life Books, as a copy editor I felt very glamorous I used to go to the huge YMCA on Tottenham Court Road at lunchtime and do aerobics classes very big in the 1980s and yes I wore legwarmers Then I d fall asleep over my desk in the afternoon When my two kids came along, I set up as a freelance copy editor and worked from home By chance I got given some teenage books to edit, and I hated the way they treated sexual relationships they were either full of gloom and doom, or were gushy, unrealistic candyfloss So I got bitten by the I can do better than this bug, and started writing I remember the first day I started to write it took me over I forgot to eat unthinkable for me and I nearly forgot to collect the kids from school About a year after that, Diving In was accepted for publication When I ran out of material from my diaries and memories, I realized my daughter and son were teenagers, and started eavesdropping on them They were extremely tolerant about this although they did sometimes demand money from me Big changes have been afoot recently My kids have left home really left home, not just gap year travelling university left home, and my old man is doing the sort of work that means he can work from home a lot of the time So we ve sold up and moved into the wilds of Wiltshire and so far I am absolutely loving it The space, the silence, seeing the stars at night in the pitch black, the owls, the trees, the walks, the great food in the local pubs everything I d started to bring nature into my books it all started with Crow Girl and now I m working on two books about a city girl who gets plunged into the wilds So the move is very much linked to and helping my writing I think the sheer beauty and power of nature and how it can get right inside you is something a lot of kids are cut off from today I still love London though the plan is to come up every couple of weeks, catch up with all my old mates, possibly do something seriously cultured like go to the theatre And I want to travel a bit , too offsetting my increased carbon footprint with an enormous compost heap I love long conversations, running, reading, gardening, walking and white wine in moderation of course and I m the first to admit I have the life of Reilly who apparently had a pretty cushy life I start the day with a run or walk with my dog, when I think about what s going to happen next in the book I m writing Then I have a huge breakfast, and get down to work I write on or if it s cold, in the spare bed with a laptop, my dog at the bottom of the bed If it s sunny, I write in the garden, on a sun lounger Tough, ay I also have this theory that you can t be truly creative for than about three or four hours a day, so in the mid afternoon, I knock off, and do my emails and stuff Told you it was cushy.

    1. Reviewed by Amber Gibson for TeensReadTooKate Cann writes a scrumptious tale of a dream vacation that features more twists and turns than a roller-coaster in MEDITERRANEAN HOLIDAY, a coming-of-age story that never fails to entertain. Chloe, a British teen, is trying to regroup and adjust to living with just her dad, after her mom leaves the family for her lover. She decides to refrain from all contact with her mother and does her best to avoid even thinking about her. When stunningly beautiful a [...]

    2. According to my mother I seem to say that about each one every summer! But its always true. Each summer they just seem to get better and better. I couldnt put this book down at all! Kate Cann's writing totally took me over and I just fell in love with Chole! And now all I want is just to go out on my own holiday and find freedom and love. If you loved the other 3 books then of course you'll love this one.-Chole is a 17 year old girl who is dealing with her mother moving in with her 'lover' and h [...]

    3. I wanted to like this book, but it was like all the characters wanted to do was have sex. I mean they were sorta on vacation in this totally awesome place, but they kept looking for places to hook up in. And the romance wasn't even that great, I hated how much they cussed and how rough they were. But I guess that is how they are in Europe?? I don't honestly know but I didn't really enjoy this book as much as I had hoped to.

    4. La storia dell’amica “alternativa” che rende più frizzante la vita della protagonista è superficiale e inconsistente. Credevo fosse un romanzo sugli amori estivi e invece è un elogio alla stupidità. Infantile.

    5. This is a tough one to review, especially having previously read just what Cann is capable of (seriously, Leaving Poppy was AMAZINGbut I digress). I started off thinking that I wasn't going to like it because it was your typical girl-is-a-social-outcast, girl-meets-perfect-blonde (seriously, said blonde was so perfect that said girl was calling her own sexuality into question), girl-becomes-friends-with-perfect-blonde, girl-realises-that-perfect-blonde-isn't-so-perfect-after-all scenario. I ende [...]

    6. This book is about a girl Chloe, who becomes a little obsessed with the new girl at school - Davina, and ends up going on holiday with her, to find that she is not as perfect as she thinks. However, a short way into this book, Chloe meets a girl who is basically Davina's doppleganger, that is to say, Chloe actually mistakes this other girl for Davina because she basically looks and behaves exactly like her, and Chloe says that she should have taken this as a sign that there was something wrong a [...]

    7. It was better than I expected Worth a light-hearted read.It is way better than Cann's other girly books cos this one didn't keep me depressed, like the protagonist, till the very end.It is worth the read. It's a good book to break up the tone between other genre books, i.e. I like horror, and this breaks my horror book routine, making the next even scarier/fresherRead it, one of the best of Cann, if you like her or romances(not a comedy though)

    8. Så dålig bok! Verkligen en av de segaste och mest meninglösa böcker jag någonsin läst. Egentligen hände det ingenting och det som hände var bara tråkigt. Karaktärerna var riktigt dåliga, de ända jag gillade lite var tjejerna som drev restaurangen (minns inte vad de hette) och kanske Alex, men bara liiite. Om ni inte måste läsa boken så tycker jag inte ni bör göra det, ni lär bli besvikna och uttråkade.

    9. Another escapism holiday novel, and like Footloose I can't help but love it. I'm a huge fan of Kate Caan anyway, but I just love reading all the description she does and the romance is great. It actually has a pretty complex plot too for what it is, so it's not complete fluff. An enjoyable story with interesting characters, and absolutely perfect for any holiday

    10. Se non hai mai avuto un'amica come Davinia non potrai mai capire questo libro. Se non ti ha avuto un'amicizia malata, squilibrata e completamente sbagliata, allora non si può capire questo libro. Io purtroppo ne ho avuta più di una e mi ci sono ritrovata in pieno in questo libro - che parte come una lettura estiva stupida e leggera e che invece è più profondo di quanto si pensi.

    11. Kate Cann manages to get the summer feeling over to the reader in all of her books. I have read three but this is without a doubt my favourite. The books all seem to follow a similar story line but still very entertaining and romantic.

    12. This had some similar plot details to Fiesta (Spanish Holiday) and I didn't like Alex as much as Juan (too angry!), but it was good.I don't know why Cora and Zara had to turn out to not be lesbians, surely their sexuality was entirely irrelevant though

    13. Really terrible. Immature inner dialogue. These girls are out getting drunk and only 17. What is with the author's obsession of young girls getting naked?

    14. I still would say I like Kate Cann's writing style, but I did not care for these characters at all. One can only take reading about a spoiled rotten bestie and her insecurities for so long.

    15. I love this series ! Really good book to read if you like to read books about young people in love and such.

    16. Was a little weirded out when I started reading it I thought it was a lesbian relationship. Turned out to be not so bad and I kind of liked it!
