The Lovereading4Kids comment

Cathy Hopkins’ great appeal to teenagers lies in her uncanny ability to live inside the head of a teenage girl and deal with all her problems with humour and empathy. This way to paradise is the first title in the hotly anticipated trilogy called Cinnamon Girl, the name by which the heroine of the story – India Jane - is better known to friends and family. Rest assured it will be devoured by teenagers everywhere.

Synopsis

This Way To Paradise by Cathy Hopkins

India Jane is fifteen and has been on the move with her bohemian parents for the whole of her life. But her plan of a London summer making friends is shattered when her father takes a position in an orchestra in Sydney and her mother plans to join him. This book is about growing up and finding oneself.

Reviews

'The language is witty, the characters are lively and entertaining - an entertaining read.'

About the Author

Cathy Hopkins

Cathy Hopkins lives in North London with her husband and three mad cats. It took her until she was 35 to decide what she wanted to do when she grew up (be a writer), so she has had a variety of other jobs. She trained as a secondary school teacher but instead of teaching, joined a rock and roll band, "Driving Rock and the Rockettes", as one of the Rockettes. She’s also worked as an occupational therapist, a scriptwriter, a newspaper reviewer on Sky News, a script reader for the comedy unit at the BBC and an aromatherapist.
