Book Description

18 July 2002 Bite
Magenta Orange is our 13-year-old heroine. Bright, sassy, but rather accident-prone, calamity seems to dog her every footstep. At the end of the last book, Magenta finally got it together with her neighbour - and nearest thing to a best friend a boy can be - Daniel. But life soon throws some more obstacles in her way ...

More About the Author

I'd been wanting to be a writer for 23 years - writing stories, sending them off, getting rejected year after year after year. But then, in January 2000, I had to have major surgery - and I died (technically!)It was the kick up the pants I needed so I gave up my day job as a teacher and set myself the target of fulfilling my dream and being a published author within one year. Four months after quitting teaching, I had a contract to write my first two books - Magenta Orange and Magenta in the Pink.
Since then I've written eight other books all for teenagers, the latest of which is Toxic Treacle.
I now spend my life writing and visiting schools - how brilliant is that?
My other loves are my family (obviously!) yoga, swimming, cycling, theatre, cinema and reading - although I'm very, very slow. I'm dyslexic, so reading and spelling have always been a problem for me. A teacher once threw a book at me because my spelling was so bad and I don't recall ever finishing a book until I was in my 20s! No wonder I failed O Level English - twice. (That's GCSE in today's money!) But I'm in a book group now, so I have to read a book a month and it's a good discipline for me. After all, the more you practise something, the better you get.
I hope you enjoyed reading my page.

A wicked, witty read - 5/5. (Mizz)

A very witty read which will leave you in stitches. (Westminster News)

Both books about Magenta Orange's hilarious but often cringeworthy antics are almost impossible to put down and I would recommend them. (Staines and Ashford News)

Blaggers: A lively and fast-paced story ... Readers will enjoy the humour and complexities of the plot ... a fun read.' (School Librarian)

5.0 out of 5 stars Also a fantastic read 16 Mar 2003
This book is the second part to MAGENTA ORANGE. It is equally hilarious and fantastic! With more disasters and wrong boyfriends...Magenta gets herself a part in the school play, Grease, read the book if you want to find out what happens. There is a very happy ending, it isn't predictable, but it's what I wanted to happen....

2.0 out of 5 stars didn't hit the spot 18 Feb 2012

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My daughter (12) just didn't seem to get on with this series. We get through quite a lot of kids books due to the range of our kids ages, not much of a narrative.
