More About the Author

Jean Ure has been writing for almost as long as she can remember. She had her first book published while she was still at school and has been writing ever since.

Over the years she has tried her hand at many different genres, sometimes through necessity, sometimes to fulfil a commission, sometimes for the sheer fun of experimenting; but the genre in which she is most at home is the genre in which she started out,which would no doubt be pigeon-holed in that dull and stodgy-sounding category, Social Realism. Her books, however, are far from either dull or stodgy. They are essentially books about young people, her protagonists typically being somewhere between the ages of ten and fourteen. Many have serious themes, even, in the case of BECKY BANANAS, tragic; others are more light-hearted. But all are written with warmth and humour and a lightness of touch which can entice even the most reluctant of readers whilst still providing food for thought.

Format: Paperback
Jean Ure is a good storyteller without ever becoming predictable or following a formula. In this story Jade and Honey decide to leave home and they encounter the inevitable anxities and insecurities of being alone. But it is encouraging that a most unlikely 'hero' comes to their rescue and that the end of the story combines a feelgood return on the one hand with a break for freedom on the other. The characters in this book are all believable and the illustrations, as with all of Karen Donnelly's are wonderfully observant. The body language in the drawing on on page fifty is perfect! A throughly good read with a pace that is maintained right to the end. Highly recommended!

Gone Missing is about two girls, Jade Rutherford, who is 14, and Honey de Vito, who is 16. Jade and Honey decide to leave home after have a miserable time with their parents. They leave trails to make everyone believe they've gone to Glasgow, when they really go to London. They get to Darcy's house and everything's fine at first, but when they get kicked out they don't know what to do...full of comedy, calamity and cool characters!!!
