The Lovereading4Kids comment

Jean Ure is excellent at getting in under the skin of the lives of teenagers and the issues they must deal with as they grow up. Here, the love, hate relationship of mother and daughter are brought into sharp focus, which in turn leads to the daughter and a friend running away to London. Excitement initially at the adventure but then things don’t quite go as they imagined and the girls realize that perhaps there is more to home life than meets the eye.

Fourteen-year-old Jade is fed up with fighting with her mum and step-dad, and her shy sixteen-year-old friend, Honey is having a miserable time with her mum, but when Jade decides they should both run away, Honey isn't so sure. But, when they get to London, things don't work out quite how they expected.

About the Author

Jean Ure

Jean Ure was born in Surrey, and when growing up, knew that she was going to be a writer but she also wanted to be a ballet dancer.

She wrote her first novel when she was six years old which was about a little girl called Carol. Jean spent her teenage years writing and had her first book published when she was just sixteen – an event that prompted her to leave school the following year to continue writing. However she spent the next several years ‘scrubbing floors, waiting at tables, selling groceries’. Jean also worked as a nurse and at the BBC before enrolling at the Webber-Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art in London, where she met her husband. She worked for several years in Paris as a translator for DATO and UNESCO and wrote romantic novels. Jean Ure is a well-known, respected and high-profile author whose numerous other titles, which include Love And Kisses, Star Crazy Me and, most recently, Jelly Baby, have received critical acclaim.

Jean is a vegan and animal lover. She lives with her husband, seven dogs and two cats in a 300 year old house in Croydon.
