Star Crazy Me by Jean UreA brilliant new comedy drama from Jean Ure, all about the ups and downs of seeking fame. Carmen is in Year 9 and has serious ambitions to be a rock star. She has a great voice, has taught herself to play the guitar, and with one of her best friends, Josh, actually writes her own songs. The school is having a Top Spot contest for would-be pop stars, and Carmen eagerly puts her name on the list. But when Carmen hears a spiteful girl at her school make comments about her weight, she bunks off school and swears she is never going back...
'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.'
