Girl vs. the World is a fun, true-to-life series about navigating high school, first crushes, and the ups and downs of adolescence. Leni has so many questions about growing up. And it seems the biggest ones are about herself ... Athletics star Leni is totally confused. She's trained with her friend Adam for ages, so why is he suddenly acting strangely around her? And what's she supposed to do about the kissing competition that her bestie's organised? There's no-one Leni's even remotely into - and besides, she'd rather hang out with Jo, the new girl at school. Jo's cool and fun and really seems to understand Leni. But as their friendship grows, Leni starts wondering if they might be more than friends. Maybe there is someone she'd like to kiss after all... Refreshingly honest and deliciously heartwarming, this series is perfect for readers aged 10 to 13.
