Julia Eccleshare's comment:
Jean Ure brilliantly captures the complex emotions that bind sisters together - and can tear them apart - in this touching and poignant story about the complexities of growing up. Ruby is the oldest of three sisters, and the most responsible. Sometimes those responsibilities seem just too much for her shoulders alone especially when mum, who is bipolar, is not able to cope.

SynopsisLemonade Sky by Jean Ure
Ruby, Tizz and Sam are sisters. At 12, Ruby is the oldest but with all the stuff she has to worry about right now, sometimes she feels more like the mum of the family. And speaking of mums, the sisters do have one, and she loves her three girls to the moon and back, but she suffers from something called bipolar disorder which can sometimes make life very difficult!
This is the poignant, heart warming and beautifully written new standalone novel from the best-loved and original Queen of Tween, whose books are described by Jacqueline Wilson as "funny, funky, feisty - and fantastic reads!"

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