The Extremely Inconvenient Adventures of Bronte Mettlestone

The Extremely Inconvenient Adventures of Bronte Mettlestone

Author: Jaclyn Moriarty Format: Hardback Release Date: 03/10/2019

Bronte Mettlestone is ten years old when her parents are killed by pirates. This does not bother her much: her parents ran away to have adventures when she was a baby. She has been raised by her Aunt Isabelle, with assistance from the Butler, and has spent a pleasant childhood of afternoon teas and riding lessons. Now, however, her parents have left detailed instructions for Bronte in their will. (Instructions that, annoyingly, have been reinforced with faery cross-stitch, which means that if she doesn't complete them, terrible things could happen) She must travel the kingdoms alone, delivering gifts to ten other aunts: a farmer aunt who owns an orange orchard, a veterinarian aunt who specializes in dragon care, a pair of aunts who captain a cruise ship, and a former rock star aunt who is now the reigning monarch of a small kingdom. But as she travels from aunt to aunt, Bronte suspects there might be more to this journey than the simple delivery of treasure; though little does she suspect that she will have to play such a big part in the extraordinary events that follow.

A few of the many rave reviews for Jaclyn's previous Macmillan novels: `I absolutely loved it. I wish I had written it' Marian Keyes `Funny . . . moving . . . compulsive' The 50 Best Books for Children, Independent `Funny, strange and improbably true' Book of the Month, J17 `A good-natured who-dunnit.

Finding Cassie Crazy

Finding Cassie Crazy

Author: Jaclyn Moriarty Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 07/05/2004

Cassie, Em and Lydia are best friends in Year 10 at Ashbury High. Ashbury students claim that all the kids at downtown Brookfield High are drug-dealers and psychopaths. Their English teacher, encouraging the Adventure of the Scary and the New and the Joy of the Envelope, starts a Pen-Pal Project. The hilarious letters between the girls and three unknown Brookfield boys lead to an escalation of the war between the schools, to secret romance, and to Cassie learning to face the dark fears that she hides from her friends. FINDING CASSIE CRAZY is the brilliant sequel to Jaclyn Moriarty's bestselling debut novel, FEELING SORRY FOR CELIA. Told entirely in the form of letters, e-mails, diary entries, reports and notices on the school bulletin board, this fabulously feel-good story is both funny and scary, happy and sad, and full of the confusions of teenage existence. 'FEELING SORRY FOR CELIA proved that this author was not only in touch with the preoccupations of the teenage mind but that she could write with enough humour and sensitivity to produce a believable and poignant story. Her sequel proves equally persuasive.' The Bookseller
