Tell Me About It
April-May is back for another year at Trinity College, and she still hasn't changed her socks.

Sebastian, aka Edward, aka the boy with the lime-green eyes, is still drop-dead gorgeous and totally bad news. But then Fatty turns up. A giant of a boy who eats stew sandwiches and cries when no one's looking. And he's best friends with Sebastian. Awkward.

Juggling the evil teacher Mrs Ho as her new live-in mom, along with a new brother (the devious Sam Ho), and a house with half a roof, April-May's life is as much of a mess as the crummy extension Fluffy is building out back. Before she knows it April-May is in an all-night dance-off and she's adopted a dog called Alistair. The less said about him the better. No wonder April-May's in counselling. It's a shame that she's the one giving all the guidance.

100 DAYS OF APRIL-MAY is the hilarious one-eyebrow-raised sequel to A MONTH WITH APRIL-MAY as she finds love, loses a dog and wins the World Cup.
My Thoughts
I enjoyed previous book, A Month With April-May.  When I saw 100 Days of April-May was being released I knew I had to read it, when it arrived I couldn't wait to make a start on this book.  April-May is in her second year of school, but without her friend Melly. Instead she now has a desk mate in the form of Ericca Ntona, aka Fatty.  This new arrangement quickly gets off to a bad start when he gets April-May into trouble, causing her to get detention.  From that moment on April-May is determined to avoid Errica.

While April-May is slightly more chilled out in 100 Days of April-May, note slightly more chilled, she still manages to get into some mischief.  One of the main causes of this is Errica, who can't help but bring April-May into his problems, accidental or not.  Another problem is Alistair, a dog that was re-homed to April-May's house while his owner moves, but when he is sent back to live with the caretaker some problems arise, and April-May, along with a few other suspects, take it into their own hands to rescue Alistair.

I don't want to say too much about this book as you need to read it yourself what mischief April-May gets up to.  Nothing runs smoothly for this small family, and it always ensures you are laughing at something going wrong.  100 Days of April-May was a quick read that I enjoyed just as much as book A Month with April-May.  There are some words that aren't used here, and are native slang words for April-May, but it was easy to pick up what they meant.

100 Days of April-May was an easy book to fall into, and I read it in one sitting over a couple of hours.  Edyth has a way of making the characters instantly likeable and believable and I would not hesitate to take another adventure with April-May.
