Synopsis

Zoe's Letter by Mary Hooper

Two new titles in an exciting new series for reluctant, under-confident or lowability readers. Problems with boys? At home? Can't talk to your friends because it's them that's the problem? Time for a letter to Liz...Fourteen-year-olds Jo, Nicki, Zoe and Amber have been going round together ever since they started at the comprehensive. Their favourite mag, Sue CQ, comes out every Thursday morning and they all love reading the Letters to Liz section: four pages of emotional, heartachy problems. Problems they can laugh or sigh over. Problems a bit like their own. In Amber's Letter, Amber suspects her dad of having an affair. Should she confront him? Or tell her mum and risk splitting the family up? What can Amber do? In Zoe's Letter, Zoe has all the trendiest clothes, all the latest CDs and all the boys. Well, almost all. She's fallen head over heels for Mac, who is going out with her best friend Amber. Should Zoe be loyal to her heart...or to her friend? Time for a letter to Liz...

About the Author

Mary Hooper

Says of herself: I was born in Barnes, South West London, which became expensive and trendy as soon as I left it. I often – nostalgically and rather lazily – use Barnes as a setting for my books. If I speak of a river then I’m thinking of the Thames, and if it’s a park or common then I picture Barnes Common. I was able to utilise all these local points and bring in Mortlake and Richmond, too, when I was writing two books about Queen Elizabeth I’s magician, Dr Dee, who lived in Mortlake.

I started working as a window dresser, but soon went into an office and – very valuable, this, for a writer – learned to type. One day I read a short story, thought that I could do better and sat down and wrote one. I sent it to Jackie, a teenage magazine, and much to my surprise sold it for £14. I was launched as a writer! I went on to write lots of short stories, and then serials, and eventually decided to write a book. At the time, there were hardly any books for teenagers, so I found getting published quite easy, but it’s very different now. I’ve written perhaps seventy or so books for children and young adults, most of them set in modern times, but as soon as I began writing historical novels I realised how much I loved doing this, and decided I didn’t want to write any more modern ones. No, not even any Megans!

I’m married to Richard and we live in Henley on Thames, Oxfordshire. I’ve still got a VW Beetle, but have upgraded it to a cabriolet version, which will be lovely when the weather improves and I can put the top down (if I can remember how to do it). My children are very grown up, my son is a writer and works for New Scientist and my daughter works for Microsoft - and has recently presented me with a gorgeous first grandson, Mackenzie. I look after him on Wednesdays so don’t ever bother me then! My hobbies are reading (of course), pottering around the house, painting furniture and being nosy (which goes with being a writer).

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

Love “Lovereading4kids” as my son gets to hear about & read new books before his mates which keeps him interested in reading=a very happy Mum

Lovereading4kids is great, we get books really early never late. We love to read and review, and think you would like it too. The excitement

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

Daisy Pennock – age 15

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

Lorraine Woods

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
