Mates, Dates, and Great Escapes by Cathy Hopkins

"Do you think that room service will deliver chocolate?" asked Izzie, who was on her knees on the floor with her face in the minibar. "We're all out here."

"Yeah," said T. J. "Who needs boys when you can have chocolate?"

"Ah, but they come in handy when we haven't any," said Nesta. "Let's call the boys in their rooms. Maybe they haven't eaten their supplies."

A school trip to Florence seems like the perfect escape for Lucy. She wants time away from Tony, who is pressuring her to take their relationship further. In Italy she meets an American boy and thinks he might be the ideal way to get over Tony.

He seems to be the perfect gentleman, and Italy introduces Lucy to a world of culture and sophistication. Will she be able to move on from Tony? Or is it a case of out of the frying pan and into the fire?

Another great addition to this series. What I really like about this series, is that it deals with real life issues and in a manner that is true to life. This book finds Lucy trying to figure out if she wants to bring her relationship with Tony to the next level. I really like getting to know these girls more and more and watching them grow and mature. I truly love this series, and this book was no exception!! :) 4.5/5
