Magenta Orange: Magenta Orange by Echo Freer


Magenta Orange: Magenta Orange by Echo Freer

Calamity seems to follow Magenta everywhere. Her neighbour, Daniel, tries to help but, inevitably, ends up inveigled into her schemes with hilarious results. Magenta has set her sights on Year 11 heart-throb, Adam Jordan, but all her attempts to impress him are thwarted by a series of mishaps. Adam is convinced she is a jinx and tries to avoid her at all costs - while Daniel spends his time trying to demonstrate his undying affection for Magenta - will the best man win?


Echo Freer has a light touch with comedy, and the ability to create memorable characters. Narinder Dhami, Writing Magazine A wicked, witty read - 5/5. Mizz A very witty read which will leave you in stitches. Westminster News Both books about Magenta Orange's hilarious but often cringeworthy antics are almost impossible to put down and I would recommend them. Staines and Ashford News Blaggers: A lively and fast-paced story ... Readers will enjoy the humour and complexities of the plot ... a fun read.
