Synopsis

Freaks Out! by Jean Ure

The third hilarious book about ten-year-old FRANKIE FOSTER - the girl who wants to help, but ends up causing chaos! From the best-loved and original Queen of Tween, whose books are described by Jacqueline Wilson as, funny, funky, feisty - and fantastic reads! 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! Frankie's best friend Skye, who's pretty serious at the best of times, is acting even more quiet than usual, so it's up to Frankie and their other best friend, Jem, to find out what's up. And when Skye confesses that she's lost a very special pencil, bequeathed to her by her granny, Frankie is determined to discover what's happened to the precious heirloom. In fact, she's SO determined to help, she's prepared to go to some extraordinary lengths...with some hilarious and very spooky consequences!

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 Ure is a well-known, respected and high-profile author whose numerous other titles, which include Love And Kisses, Star Crazy Me and, most recently, Jelly Baby, have received critical acclaim.

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.
