Product Description


"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

Product Description

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?

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Book 19 Aug 2005
This book is quite good, though not the best book that Jean Ure has written but if you are a fan of Jean Ure (like me!) I'm pretty much sure you'll like it. It's all about this girl, Ruth, who hates school, is considered a nerd and has no friends. But then Shay Sugar comes along and things begin to change..interesting book!
