Product Description

The second fantastic book about ten-year-old FRANKIE FOSTER – the girl who wants to help, but ends up causing chaos!

Frankie Foster loves fixing people's problems. Her help might not always be welcome – and she might cause the odd total disaster – but Frankie always fixes things. Eventually!

When Frankie’s mum agrees to have a friend’s daughter to stay for a fortnight, it falls on Frankie’s shoulders to look after Amelia. Having another girl share her broom cupboard of a bedroom is one thing, but wherever Amelia goes, trouble seems to follow, however hard Frankie tries to keep her out of it!
Frankie certainly gets more than she bargains for with Amelia, but in typical Frankie fashion, she soon realises how being different is no bad thing and learns some important lessons along the way… like the true meaning of friendship and how to keep life ‘sweet’!

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 Challenge for Frankie! 23 Aug 2011
When Frankie Foster is asked to look after Emilia, the daughter of her Mum's friend who is in hospital, little does she know how many adjustments she will end up having to make.

It is bad enough having to change bedrooms but Frankie soon finds that she is largely on her own with the task as her sister Angel, brother Tom and friends Skye and Jem find it hard to provide her with the support that she needs.

Frankie faces many unexpected challenges which result in her learning more about the task of befriending than she could have ever imagined.

Once again, Frankie rises to the occasion and experiences a very different kind of friendship. A lovely story expertly told.

5.0 out of 5 stars I like these books. 30 Dec 2011
By Molly
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is amazing!!! I love Frankie Foster books. This is really good. I like the fact that Jean Ure is not afraid to use loads of different styled characters in her books. Although some people say there is no storyline, there so is. It is obvious what the story is about. It is simply, that she is faced with a challenge- and what a big challenge it is, and she has to cope with it for a few weeks. I read it within 3-4 days, and I enjoyed it. It's simple, but a definite page turner. I must say, it is quick to finish, and if you want a challenging book, this may not be the one for you. But it is light and easy to read. I would suggest it for 9-12 year olds. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as pick n mix! 4 Aug 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is impossible to put down! I previously read (and adored) Frankie Foster Fizzy Pop. This book is just as good as the first! Frankie Foster lives in a family of five. Her Mum is constantly busy with her work and Frankie is always trying to make things easier for her by helping out, although it doesn't always work! Her Dad is also very busy with his work. Frankie believes her older brother Tom is actually an alien from outer space as he never seems to be anywhere but in his room playing on his computer, and only ever seems to grunt communication. As for Angel, she is your very stereo typical girl teenager. She is constantly worried about how she looks and it seems that she only cares about make up and boys. Plus, she is sworn enemies with Frankie! Sometimes it seems the only people Frankie can turn to are her best friends, Jem( a giggling humorous girl) and Skye, a smart girl who doesn't approve of breaking rules. But when Frankie agrees to take care of a girl with special needs, her friends find it an embarrassment and decide they can't put up with it any longer. But with her friends gone, who can help Frankie when things go drastically wrong?
