So when her mum suggests moving to Amsterdam to try a new life, Kitty doesn't take much persuading. Will this be her opportunity to make her life picture perfect? In Amsterdam she meets moody, unpredictable Ethan, and clever, troubled Theo. Two enigmatic boys, who each harbour their own secrets.

Keren David got her first job in journalism, at eighteen, as a messenger girl. The following year she turned down a place at university to be apprenticed as a reporter. She's worked for many of the national newspapers in Scotland and London and later became a commissioning editor on the Independent's op-ed page. After eight years in Amsterdam, Keren returned to London in 2007 and took a course of evening classes in Writing for Children at City University. Her first book, the award-winning When I Was Joe started out as a plot-planning exercise on the course. Lia's Guide to Winning the Lottery, a stand-alone novel, is currently being developed into a musical. This is Not a Love Story is Keren's sixth book.
