“Friend Me” and “Besties” are novels by Author Cathy Hopkins. They are in the teen fiction drama. These novels include books one through six of the Mates, Dates series. Cathy Hopkins’ novels are enjoyable and fun to read real page-turners. When I read these novels, I couldn’t stop reading. I know reading a book is not normally on a teen’s summer to-do-list but Cathy Hopkins “Mates Dates” series are a summer must read.

The books are about three best friends, Lucy, Izzie, and Nesta and their struggles with being teenage girls. Hopkins has a moral for each story, like in Mates, Dates and Designer Diva’s it’s jealousy. Nesta gets jealous and almost loses her friends. The girls are trying to “find themselves” and doing different things like trying to “fit in” and make friends are helping them on this quest.

There are seventeen “Mates Dates” books in the series. Cathy has written more than 50 books. She started writing in 1986 and started writing teen fiction in 2000. This year Cathy was nominated for the most glamorous book awards called the “Queen of Teen.” It is to congratulate her and other author’s amazing work in teen fiction.
