The Secret Life of Sally Tomato

Written by Jean Ure

The Secret Life of Sally Tomato Synopsis

The fourth title in Jean Ure's acclaimed series of humorous, delightful and poignant stories written in the form of diaries and letters which make them immediately accessible to children. Jean Ure perfectly captures the lives of ordinary children - but no child is ever ordinary, and certainly not Salvatore d'Amato - or Sally Tomato, as he's sometimes called. He's out to get a girl and he has a plan: he's going to write some Disgusting Ditties - one for each letter of the alphabet, and start some secret body-building, too. That way he's bound to attract someone. (But he doesn't want his sister to know his plans...) Whether it's Sal Tomato here, Mandy Small in FRUIT AND NUTCASE, Cherry in SKINNY MELON AND ME, or Becky in BECKY BANANAS, their lives, with all their ups and downs, is presented with courage, humour and tenacity. These are special children who any child can relate to and will draw inspiration and hope from their stories of their lives.

The Secret Life of Sally Tomato Press Reviews

FRUIT & NUTCASE: ...this is an upbeat yet gritty story about the tenacity of love and the fact that life is never perfect. Scotland on Sunday BECKY BANANAS: ...the writing transcends any trace of heaviness. The Guardian.
