I finished a whole book! Heatwave by Victor Jestin reignited my reading mojo.

I received this as a birthday gift, and after my recent failed attempts to finish two successive books, this is one that I actually read from cover to cover in just a couple of days.

Heatwave is by French author Victor Jestin (translated into English by Sam Taylor). Waterstones interviewed Jestin about Heatwave in a Q&A feature, which you can read here.

This short novel, set during a scorching summer at a campsite on the French coast, simply drips with teenage angst and raging hormones, which will make you glad that you don’t have to be that age ever again. Oh, and there’s a dark secret that casts a shadow over everything, despite the relentless sunshine.

Highly recommended.
