Product description

Review

Praise for Jenny Valentine:

‘Valentine has the essential storyteller's gift of making you want to read on - and to know more even after the book is finished.’ Guardian

‘The award-winning Valentine has a keen eye for the idiosyncrasies of young children, and the rhythms of family life.’ The Bookseller

‘[Valentine] has a wonderful ability to take readers right into the hearts and souls of her central characters, and reading her is always a truly vicarious experience.’ The Bookbag

Praise for Broken Soup

“…a life-affirming, witty, romantic read, about freedom, responsibility and love.” – Sunday Times, Culture

‘delicately written … A solid tale of what it takes to grow up and how to ask for help.’ Publishers Weekly

“Valentine’s appeal lies in conveying life and hope.” – The Times

“…a very funny and sad story about what really makes a family, and how we can lose our common sense in times of crisis and find it again through love.” – The Daily Mail

“Beautifully written and emotionally sure, this is unputdownable and should keep even the most moany teenager quiet until it’s finished.” – The Independent

About the Author

Jenny Valentine moved house every two years when she was growing up. She has just moved house again, probably not for the last time. She worked in a wholefood shop in Primrose Hill for fifteen years where she met many extraordinary people and sold more organic loaves than there are words in her first novel, Finding Violet Park. She has also worked as a teaching assistant and a jewellery maker. She studied English Literature at Goldsmiths College, which almost put her off reading but not quite.
Jenny is married to a singer/songwriter and has two children.
