Hello hello! It’s been a strange beginning to 2021, and while things might not be quite back to normal, that’s all the more reason to look for the fun things in life. With that in mind, and with us being close to Valentines’s Day, we also approach the re-release of the Heartbreak Cafe series. These are being republished for the first time in thirty years, perfect for fans of things like The Babysitters Club: ideal for a little trip of nostalgia.
“Heartbreak Cafe” book one “No Experience Required” synopsis
It’s 1989. Life’s easy for DEBORAH LESLEY: she’s up-market, drives her own flash car to school, and looks pretty good too. She’s never had a job, either; but now her parents have split up, and she needs the money.
JOE GARBARINI is cool. He likes motorbikes, girls, and fun. He doesn’t have time for much — he’s running Heartbreak Café when he’s not at school.
The Heartbreak Café is a noisy hangout on the north Californian coast. Joe’s worked there for years, and knows what it takes. He’s sure Debbie won’t last a month — but Debbie’s determined to put up with his wisecracks and prove him wrong.
Debbie, Joe and the rest of the gang are all at the Heartbreak Café. Meet them in this sparkling series from bestselling author Janet Quin-Harkin.
