I am taking/chaperoning 3 teenage girls on a trip to England where we will spend 2.5 days in London on their way to an exchange program in Bath.
I would like to give them a novel that will be an easy read on the plane since they will already be sleep deprived when they board and won’t have the energy for the ‘classics’.
My real objective is to give them a book that will allow them to identify with the more mundane things that make London unique. For example, as a huge Absolutely Fabulous fan just seeing Harvey Nichols made me say “Sweetie dahling, Harvey Nicks” and gave me an urge to say LaCroix. M&S made me think of Bridget Jones Diary.
So does anyone have some suggestions on what books I should look to get for them.
Oh and this is coming out of my pocket, so paperbacks are a must!
