    I first read this series when I was about 13 years old, and they were some of my favourite books. Now, years later, my reading tastes have matured, but I still really enjoy these books. They're fun, girlie, easy, light-hearted, and extremely quick. I read this in only an hour or so. I really look forward to rereading the rest of this series this year, and remembering my early teenage-hood, where the only things that mattered were school, friends, and getting your crush to notice you.

Oh, sure I still cringed quite a bit while rereading it. But there are worst books out there. I just think I’ve really outgrown this series and instead of being labeled YA it should be middle grade.

I just think I’ve really outgrown this series and instead of being labeled YA it should be middle grade. Well, maybe ten years ago it was YA. Let’s face it, the genre has matured a bit in ten years. Used to you’d never see characters have sexual relationships with each and now..well, it’s more common place. Dates, Mates, and Inflatable Bras isn’t really the best book. And it hasn’t held up well over time either. Though to be fair it was a little bit behind the times when it was first published too, Leo Dicaprio was so late 90’s book. Whatever though. The characters, while flat were enjoyable. Out of all the main characters in the series, I remember enjoying Lucy’s POV the most so maybe that’s what made this one was stomach-able-Nesta I remember way beyond shallow in the series. I think one of the reasons I liked Lucy so much was she was the most levelheaded of the bunch and out of the cliche characteristics that this bunch had, hers was the most tolerable. Oh, sure she whines someone and is as boring as heck, but at least she’s likable. Before I read this book I was reflecting on it, and I remembered I really liked the love interest. But Tony is a bit of a bore to me now. And honestly his relationship with Lucy is at best one sided insta love. Honestly, they probably shouldn’t have gotten together in this installment. I think a lot of my feelings for Tony were being mixed up with my feelings for Michael Moscovitz (another series that I’m planning on rereading in the next year or so). Both of them are the brothers of the protagonist’s best friend. But Tony is no Michael with his Leo DiCaprio face and womanizing ways. And other than being pretty, I don’t get Lucy’s attraction towards him. I think they only interacted for about ten pages.

    I decided to read Mates, Dates and Inflatable Bras as an IR book. This was about a girl named Lucy who was trying to find out who wants to be and about her romance and friends. Lucy lives in Britian with her best friend Izzie. Izzie and Lucy has been best friends forever. But she thinks this new girl named Nesta is gonna take her away. She also has to deal with this mystery boy she saw and tries to do anything to meet him and know him. When she finds out it's someone Nesta knows she keeps quiet I decided to read Mates, Dates and Inflatable Bras as an IR book.

Through out the book to keeps her mystery boy a secret and learns to be a friend to someone new. Sh efindsout things evry step she takes. I have a Text-To-Text connection to this book. I connect it to a book i've read called Love, Hollywood Style. It's also about doing stuff to get to meet a boy. Lucy goes around his school to find him. And the girl in the other book tries to meet him through movie methods. But they both find out that, that guy might not be all worth, or may not be the right guy. I would give this *****stars. I gave it 5 stars because it showed how she had to decide on things. This bookdrew me in because every page seemed to get better from every juicy detailit gave me. Especially with the mystery boy you would always wanna find out whats next. I suggest this book to someone who like teen foction. Who likes the romance and decisions.

That even though someone else is hanging out with your best buddy, you have to learn and try to give that new person a chance.

What tween girl isn't obsessed with themselves? I mean, when I was 13-14-15, I was boy-crazy, self-concious, and had no clue what I wanted to do with my life. I think this book would have gone over very well with that version of myself.

    Would you look at that? It's my childhood calling. Although eventually the series gets a bit repetitive, I read them all. Because friendships, boy talk, and family drama is what I lived for in my early teens. Would you look at that? It's my childhood calling.

    Quick Review: This is a great YA teen romance to spice up your TBR! It's really amusing jumping back into early 2000s YA novels, and it's quite the treat for me. It's definitely different reading them as an adult rather than as a teen, and I'm not sure if they hold up with the times but I still enjoyed them! It's all about falling in love and chasing the boy of your dreams for the very first time... With a catchy title! Quick Review: This is a great YA teen romance to spice up your TBR!

Throughout the book with the help of her friends, Lucy finds out who she really is and becomes more confident with herself then she had ever been. In the end, Lucy gains everlasting friendships and winds up able to write the paper about herself. Age: The age range for this book is for early teen girls. It is fun to read because it is from the U.K. Elements: This book is fun to read because a woman wrote it from the U.K. so some of the words are different. Because of the content of the book, it is a better book for girls because it is about young teen girls who are trying to find out who they are. Recommendation: This book is the first of a series and they are the books that really got me to enjoy reading. I loved all of them this one in particular focuses more on identity and what Lucy wants to be when she grows up. I probably would not recommend it for schools but for some kind of girl’s small group or social type of thing, I do. It is a great book because Lucy is trying to fit in but at the same time she does not and she gets lost and caught up in what she thinks she needs to be with who she really is.

    As a 16 year old when I read it, it really made me smile. What was being written and the language used are things that actually happen to the english teen. Also, what Lucy thought and said were exactly the kinds of things that were zooming through my head at 14. The fact that Lucy got panicked over really silly things and overthinking what people had said- almost paranoid in some parts - was exacly the things that I did. Especially when it came to friendships. Also, I liked how everyhting was trea As a 16 year old when I read it, it really made me smile.

This may make some more serious parts appear less serious than they are, but I felt that wasn't how it was supposed to be recieved. When I was 14 - and even now that I think about it - everthing is a big deal. Little or serious problems to a teen are all big deals. So, in my opinion, I feel this book really hit a nail on the head on how it feels like to be a teenager =) I really love this book =)

She thought it was love at first sight. So, after a week of continuous searching, she found him! But, he wasn't who she thought he was. He was Nesta's older brother. This realistic fiction shows how Lucy realized that friends and family were more important than boys. It described how her life went from what seemed the worst go to one of the best years ever. I enjoyed reading this book. Also, I know that in a few weeks I will definitely be reading this book again.

    As a young teenager, I absolutely adored and devoured every single book in this series. To me, the girls were very relatable, whilst also being interesting. Their London lifestyle was fascinating and their, albeit slightly unrealistic comings and goings at just 14, sparked my imagination and I remember being totally lost in their world. This series has a real nostalgia attached to it now as I can remember being so obsessed with each character.

    Still after years since first reading this, I love it. Cute, funny, easy read. Probably read it in an hour or less! I still like Lucy a lot and I remember how I felt like her, that I had no idea what to do in the future. (still not quite sure) But it's fine. Perfect series to just read and empty your mind. So light and quick. I will go through few of these now as I got few from the library! Still after years since first reading this, I love it. Cute, funny, easy read.
