Mates, Dates, & Chocolate Cheats is a young adult audiobook for teenage girls, and is part of English author Cathy Hopkins' wildly popular Mates, Dates series.
In this installment, narrated with youthful verve by Nicky Talacko, our teen heroine, Izzie, struggles with her body image and self-esteem. She’s convinced she’s fat, even though her sensible girlfriends tell her otherwise, and she begins unhealthy measures to lose her phantom "excess weight".
During this crisis, Izzie also falls in love with a cute guy who’s gay. So that’s never fun for anybody involved.
