Blog Tour|Book Review|Bubblegum and Blazers|Isabella May

Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for this fabulous and quirky read from foodie fiction, indie author, Isabella May. Big thank to Rachel at rararesources for the invite and the author for my copy.


When Ali, Blake, Charlotte, and Grant sign contracts to star in a Back to School reality TV show, LOVE is the very last thing on their minds:

Ali flies to the UK from New Zealand, intrigued by the golden opportunity to advance her amateur social media influencer career.

Blake carpe diems the moment with both hands after a constant flurry of bad luck.

Charlotte jumps at the chance to relive her sporting glories of the past – and take a hiatus from her humdrum marriage.

And Grant is just relieved to get away from his failing second-hand music shop.

But once the advances hit their bank accounts, it soon becomes apparent that producer Jock’s Pied Piper-style offer to change their lives is distinctly lacking in sherbet fizz!

In fact, the only sweet thing about this gig for the former students and the rest of their Bubblegum and Blazers competitors, may just be the packet of candy in their pockets.

Re-enacting their past is a roller coaster of revelations, retaliation, and unlikely romance in a goldfish bowl of mayhem where Raphael (agony uncle of the school sweet shop) and his rhubarb and custards reign supreme…

My Review ⭐⭐⭐⭐Haven’t read an Isabella May novel before? Where have you been? You are seriously missing out. Its always a pleasure to read one of this authors books, safe to say there is never a dull moment and always something scrummy to boot. Not your typical high school reunion, no no no, think big brother crossed with Grange Hill and you’re getting there. With a mirad of wierd, wonderful and colourful characters that you will either love, hate or just can’t make your mind up about plus and a old school sweet shop thrown in to the mix a good time is sure to be had by all. Or is it?? My eyes lit up when I read the words juicy fruit and coconut ice, I’m more a chocolate girl than a sweet girl but these took me right back there. Along with the 90s playlist the memories of high school come flooding back with people and situations that we can all relate to. Having a rubbish day, be sure to pick up this slightly bonkers, totally original and utterly brilliant fun read.
