Editorial Reviews

With a touch of tenderness, actress Nicky Talacko's vibrant performance of Mates, Dates, and Great Escapes, one in the Mates and Dates series by British young adult author Cathy Hopkins, puts listeners in Lucy's shoes as she tries to get over Tony with a new heartthrob on a school trip in Florence. Sensitive, witty Lucy isn't sure she hasn't just gotten herself in over her head again. Teen listeners can't help but identify with Lucy's struggles as she navigates the worlds of friends and romance, charmingly brought to life by Talacko's talented characterization and empathetic voice.

Publisher's Summary

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, who is also visiting Tuscany, and thinks he might be the ideal way to get over Tony. He seems to be the perfect gentlemen and Italy introduces Lucy to a world of culture and sophistication. Will she be able to move on from Tony? Or is a case of out of the frying pan and into the fire?
