Synopsis

Just Peachy by Jean Ure

A coming of age story about self-discovery and independence from the Queen of Tween, Jean Ure. 'I've always been the quiet one in my dramatic family. Not a drama queen, or a genius composer, or a twin, but Just Peachy. Mum says I've got my own thing going on...I just wish I knew what that was! When I decide I want to attend Sacred Heart school rather than Summerville where my family have always gone everyone finally stops to listen! Stepping out on my own is scary, but I need space to find out who I am and what I'm good at.' A new novel from Jean Ure, about a girl trying to find who she really is - and maybe a friend along the way...

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.
