A warm-hearted and hugely entertaining celebration of the value – and complications! – of friendship, this captures the special intensity that surrounds life in general and teen friendships in particular in a boarding school setting. Gina is excited to be welcoming her friends from back home in California to her school in Edinburgh but finds that her two groups of friends are sometimes hard to manage… For others in the dorm, there are boyfriend issues and, for Amy, all the drama surrounding being in the school play. St Jude’s is certainly not the stuffy school that some might take it for!

Synopsis

Secrets at St Jude's Drama Girl by Carmen Reid

You'd think that being stuck in a stuffy girls boarding school would mean life was dull and dreary, but this term the St Jude's girls are in for some serious drama! Gina can't wait for her mum and friends to make the trip over to visit her from sunny California, but things don't exactly go to plan and she finds herself stuck in the middle of them and her new friends and hunky boyfriend. And things don't get better as the rest of her dorm-mates have their own dramas to deal with...Niffy is not happy about her best friend and her brother becoming a couple - yuck! Min wishes she had the confidence to finally kiss her new boyfriend, and poor Amy is starting to do anything to look thin for the school play. Will all the drama be resolved ...?

About the Author

Carmen Reid

Carmen Reid was born and brought up in a chilly and windy corner of Scotland in the depths of the countryside. This may explain her lifelong phobia of cows and abiding interest in cities, department stores, books, the cinema and newspapers.

Fortunately her hobbies are cooking, cleaning, arguing about whose turn it is to walk the dog, clean the fish tank, take out the rubbish, do the laundry... and so on.
