"Jean Ure's books are funny, funky, feisty - and fantastic reads!" -- Jacqueline Wilson Praise for Passion Flower: "A funny and realistic read -- we loved it." -- Mizz Praise for Pumpkin Pie: "The heroine I've been waiting for." -- Times Praise for Shrinking Violet: "Excellent for any nine-up and will almost certainly lead to an addiction to Ure." -- The Observer Praise for Becky Bananas: "The writing transcends any trace of heaviness." -- The Guardian
A fabulous story by Jean Ure, a must for any girl’s collection! At Parkfield High no one would have thought nerdy Ruth and super-cool Shayanne would be friends – but maybe there’s more to Shayanne than meets the eye.
Ruth is not enjoying her new school. Things were fine at her junior school, but here at Parkfield High, if you’re not in a gang you’re no one. Even her old mates don’t want to know her any more and the bullies are making her life a misery.
Enter Shayanne, the new girl. Shayanne is cool, collected and doesn’t give a stuff about any silly gangs. Ruth is astonished and delighted when Shay pals up with her. The bullies leave her alone and it’s great to have a special friend again. But is the supercool Shay as together as she thinks, and why has she been excluded from two other schools?
