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.
Gone Missing by Jean Ure
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.
'A funny and realistic read - we loved it.'
'The heroine I've been waiting for.'
'Grown-ups love Bridget Jones'
'Excellent for any nine-up and will almost certainly lead to an addiction to Ure.'
'The writing transcends any trace of heaviness.'
'Jean Ure never puts a foot wrong.'
'Rhymes, sauciness, letters, irony, comedy, comic characters... a proper little turn-on for boys. A must-buy book.'
