Exclusive Extract From Trouble by Non Pratt

Today is an exciting day!!!!
Why? you ask.
Well myself and some very lovely bloggers get to reveal some rather exclusive extracts for the forthcoming debut of one seriously talented debut author - Non Pratt!
Now you have to read them in order, so you need to pop over to Wondrous Reads to read the first snippet and then follow the links through. Go on! What are you waiting for???
Since I joined Rex by the picnic tables I’ve been listening to him complain about his absent girlfriend and quietly trying to work out if park politics are any different from the school ones. The only difference appears to be that, for the boys, any girl is fair game, but the girls themselves are locked in a turf war. The cool girls, the ones Tyrone talks to in school, are hanging out by the skate ramp, and there’s another group on the far side of the grass. Sitting on the swings, in a satellite of two, are Hannah Sheppard and her friend Katie Coleman, who look very different out of uniform. My dad – whose favourite gripe is the ever-shrinking school skirt – would have a fit if he saw the belt that Hannah’s wearing.
I’m having trouble working out where these two fit in. That’s why I keep glancing over – nothing to do with the legs that Hannah’s got on display.
Have you finished? Isn't it fabulous!!!!
Now head over to Kirsty's lovely blog The Overflowing Library to read the next extract. If you click on the blue button above, it should take you straight to it.  Keep reading the extracts because there is a fantastic competition on the Ink Slingers blog to win a proof copy of this fabulous book allowing you the opportunity to read it before anyone else gets their fingers on it!

Just to whet your appetites even more. Here's the blurb for the book.

A boy. A girl. A bump. Trouble.
Hannah’s smart and funny … she’s also fifteen and pregnant. Aaron is new at school and doesn’t want to attract attention. So why does he offer to be the pretend dad to Hannah’s unborn baby?
Growing up can be trouble but that’s how you find out what really matters.
