LoveReading View on Ruby Rogers is a Waste of Space

Sue Limb is remarkable in her ability to get into the psyche of the age of child she’s writing for. With the wonderful Ruby Rogers, a brilliant character whose appeal is to children who have begun that wonderful period of reading alone, she has yet again hit the button.

Written with humour and the plots are always very true to life albeit a rather chaotic one.

Other titles in this series include Walking Legend, Get A Life, Get Me Out of Here, and Party Pooper.


Ruby Rogers is a Waste of Space Synopsis

Ruby Rogers is about to turn ten. She wants to be a gangster, when she grows up. She also wants nothing more than a tree house for her birthday. The problem is, there aren't any trees in her garden, and her family laughs off the idea. Ruby's furious, but then life takes a turn for the better when, through her best friend Yasmin, she meets Holly Helvellyn, a super-cool Gothic girl who's friends with Yasmin's older sister. It turns out Holly rather fancies Ruby's older brother Joe - the brooding artist in the sixth-form, who has a strange habit of talking in newspaper headlines. One day Holly asks Ruby to steal something from Joe's bedroom for a joke, setting off a chain of events that culminate in some very unexpected but pleasant surprises.
