Synopsis

Fizzypop (Frankie Foster, Book 1) by Jean Ure

The first book about ten-year-old FRANKIE FOSTER - the girl who wants to help, but ends up causing chaos! Frankie Foster loves fixing people's problems. Her help might not always be welcome - and she might cause the odd total disaster - but Frankie always fixes things. Eventually! It all started with the My Beginnings essays that Frankie and her classmates had to write for English. Her best friend, Jem, wrote all about how she felt being adopted and it was so good it got chosen to be read out at the end of term Speech Day! But writing the essay stirs up some questions for Jem, and she starts wondering about the identity of her biological mum. Needless to say, Frankie jumps at the chance to uncover the mystery and makes it her mission to reunite mother and daughter...regardless of the consequences!

Reviews

Jean Ure's books are funny, funky, feisty - and fantastic reads! - Jacqueline Wilson Praise for Passion Flower: A funny and realistic read - we loved it. - Mizz Praise for Pumpkin Pie: The heroine I've been waiting for. - Times Praise for Shrinking Violet: Excellent for any nine-up and will almost certainly lead to an addiction to Ure. - The Observer Praise for Becky Bananas: The writing transcends any trace of heaviness. - The Guardian

About the Author

Jean Ure

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.
