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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A difficult decision 9 May 2009
Format:Paperback
This is the story of the dilemmas of first love, sensitively explored. Tamsin's emotions are both powerful and real as she meets Alex and tries to come to terms with differences in age and origin.The author demonstrates respect and understanding for Tamsin's feelings and for her journey to resolve the many conflicts that inevitably arise. It is a story of twists and turns, relationships and humour, visitors from near and far and two delightfully dotty aunts who inadvertently help Tamsin to reach a decision. In 'Love and Kisses', the author takes risks in tackling a subject that could be controversial but which expertly weaves its way towards a difficult but decisive conclusion. This is a story insightfully written. A must for all teenagers facing the power of love for the very first time

5.0 out of 5 stars A Modern Love Story 30 July 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book addresses the issues which many girls face - falling in love with someone you shouldn't. Tamsin knows that she shouldn't be with Alex, but she tells him she is older than she is just so that she can be with him. But when she does eventually tell Alex that she has been lying, he says that they cannot be together. Tamsin finds this hard to deal with, as many girls do when they break up with their boyfriends. Jean Ure approaches the subject in a sensitive and adult way, but also in a way that teens can relate to and understand. The book has a good ending which shows that you can pick yourself up and lead a good life even if you have lost someone you thought you loved.

4.0 out of 5 stars So romantic!! 2 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is so romantic!! At first I thought it would just be a book about young romance but then there is all the stuff about patty, the ghost and the talking of going to Spain.

I would recommend this book for 12-14 year olds.
I will definitely be reading some more Jean Ure (this was the first one I have read)

You will love this book if you like reading about young romance with a bit of mystery!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad. 21 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was really looking forward to this book as someone recommend it to me comparing it to Jacqueline Wilson's Kiss & Love Lessons. The beginning and middle were good hence had me eager to turn the next page. Although towards the end it did get quite confusing I must admit. Other than that this book really does show the emotions a young teen would have during their first love.
