Signed, Hopelessly in Love (ePub) | Young Adult Fiction
Amo lives with her grandmother in Botswana. She is best friends with Nono, the school's star athlete, and works on the school newspaper. When she is asked to write the agony column she finds herself giving advice to the boy she is in love with, with dire results.
Can she face the humiliation of having declared her love believing that it will be reciprocated?
Signed, Hopelessly in Love hits all the core notes for a great read: it is set in a high school, with entertaining main characters and incidents, there is the great love story of John Gababonwe, and the interfering parent in Granma, not to mention school bitchiness in the attack on Nono on the athletics track.
A wonderfully original and humorous story.
Signed, Hopelessly in Love was a finalist in the 2009 Sanlam Prize for Youth Literature.
