Synopsis

Pick 'n' Mix (Frankie Foster, Book 2) by Jean Ure

The second fantastic 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! When Frankie's mum agrees to have a friend's daughter to stay for a fortnight, it falls on Frankie's shoulders to look after Amelia. Having another girl share her broom cupboard of a bedroom is one thing, but wherever Amelia goes, trouble seems to follow, however hard Frankie tries to keep her out of it! Frankie certainly gets more than she bargains for with Amelia, but in typical Frankie fashion, she soon realises how being different is no bad thing and learns some important lessons along the way...like the true meaning of friendship and how to keep life 'sweet'!

Reviews

Here's just a sample of what children are saying about Frankie Foster: Amazing! Full of shocks and surprises on every page! Beth, age 9 Fizzy Pop was so exciting, I couldn't put it down! Emily, age 11 Frankie Foster steps out of the pages of this spell-binding book and comes to life. Imogen, age 12 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.
