Ondine: The Summer of Shambles by Ebony Mckenna

Target Audience: Teens/Young Adults
Genre: Fantasy/Romance/Humour

The Summer of Shambles (Ondine, #1)Really, this is one of the best and funniest books i have ever read!
Being a fan of fairy tales in general i liked the sound of one that focuses on a scottish ferret and a young girl who gets sent to 'Psychic Summercamp' and falls in love with previously mentiones ferret, who is in fact a rather gorgeous man.

Honestly, if your a sceptic person with no imagination please put your reservations aside and give this a go.
Every other line will have you laughing, especially Hamish (the ferret), and his growing relationship with Ondine is wonderful to read about, it really captures the emotions (and embarrasments) of first love.

I also thought the Scottish language that was used, was absolutely brilliant, and it had me almost crying with laughter.
So really, don't be a bampot, give this absolutely fantastic book a read, you won't regret it.

(By the way, Bampot is scottish for a silly person lol)
