Jess Gordon is out for revenge. Last year the jocks from Knights College tried to shame her best friend. This year she and a hand-picked college girl gang are going to get even.
The lesson: don't mess with Unity girls.
The target: Blondie, a typical Knights stud, arrogant, cold . . . and smart enough to keep up with Jess.
A neo-riot grrl with a penchant for fanning the flames meets a rugby-playing sexist pig - sworn enemies or two people who happen to find each other when they're at their most vulnerable?
It's all Girl meets Boy, Girl steals from Boy, seduces Boy, ties Boy to a chair and burns Boy's stuff. Just your typical love story.
Taking a keen look at modern day intimacy in a hook-up culture, Summer Skin expertly shatters notions of slut shaming and the pull of sexual desire. Realistic, modern and moving, the story of Jess and Mitch is as smart as it is hot. Kirsty Eagar has written the feminist love story that girls have been waiting for." Clementine Ford "
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Mitch Crawford is the kind of Knights boy that Unity College student Jess can’t stand: athletic, rich, handsome and unflinchingly sure of himself. Kirsty Eager’s young-adult novel is an honest and messy opposites-attract story. Her social media–savvy, sharp-tongued characters sound and act like real university students, veering from reckless jerks to tenderhearted romantics and back again. Getting caught up in Mitch and Jess’ drama made us feel deliciously young and wistful.

Well done Kirsty! I really enjoyed reading Summer Skin. A great storyline and you included my two favourite components - humour and a bit of juice! Can't wait for your next book. Caz xx
