Synopsis

Gypsy Girl by Kathryn James

A gripping romantic thriller set in a gypsy community.A gripping romantic thriller set in a gypsy community. It began three days ago with a fight. Seems that for me, everything begins with a fight... Gypsy Girl Sammy Jo may be strong, fast and tough, even in heels, but she gets into trouble when she fights some local thugs to save rich-boy Gregory. Now bad guy McCloud is after her - and he's even more dangerous than her forbidden love for Gregory...

Reviews

This book shows you that travelling people are not so different from other people. It also makes you realise that you don't even need a permanent home. All you need is love, friendship and a brave spirit. I give this book five stars out of five, mainly for the humour and teenage sarcasm of our heroine, Sammy-Jo. I would recommend the book to girls, aged 9-14. -- The Guardian Online * The Guardian Online * Sammy-Jo [...] is a likable heroine and the author has set her story so that the reader gains an appreciation of the culture of the travelling people and how times have changed for them in recent decades. * The School Librarian * Gypsy Girl really is an all-rounder - there's action, suspense, culture, romance, family, moments of infectious humour and very real danger...you name it, Gypsy Girl's got it! -- Charlotte Revell * Reading Zone * A highly original story, with a fantastically determined and unusual heroine - a fierce fighter who revels in both her strength and her beauty. -- Imogen Russell-Williams * Teens on Moon Lane * I like this book a lot because it was different from other books I've read. I like Sammy-Jo because she doesn't follow stereotypes at all [...] I would definitely recommend this book -- Reader Review * Teen Titles *
