Passion Flower

Written by Jean Ure

Passion Flower Synopsis

The seventh title in Jean Ure's acclaimed series of humorous and poignant stories. There's trouble ahead when Steph and Sam's father embarks on a spot of kidnapping. Of course, Mum shouldn't have thrown the frying pan at Dad. The day after she threw it, Dad left home... Of course, Mum shouldn't have thrown the frying pan at Dad. The day after she threw it, Dad left home... Parents! First they're together, then they're apart. For Stephanie, a hip fourteen year old, and Samantha, her ten-year-old sister, being stuck in the middle of their parent's problems is just what they need. Not. When Dad decides that what the girls really need is a summer holiday with him in Brighton, they jump at the chance. No rules, no hassle, no worries. But things never turn out the way you think, and Steph and Sam soon discover there's a lot more to being a family than they thought... Jean Ure's diary series includes: Pumpkin Pie, Shrinking Violet, Skinny Melon and Me, The Secret Life of Sally Tomato, Becky Bananas, This is Your Life! and Fruit and Nutcase.

Passion Flower Press Reviews

Pumpkin Pie `Pumpkin Pie has the heroine I've been waiting for.' Times Shrinking Violet Grown-ups love Bridget Jones' diary, but youngsters will adore Violet Alexander's. Liverpool Echo ...the story is timeless, the descriptions of the girls and their relationship spot on and it does a great job of selling the empowering nature of language and story. Books for Keeps Excellent for any nine-up and will almost certainly lead to an addiction to Ure. Observer Becky Bananas `The writing transcends any trace of heaviness.' Guardian The Secret Life of Sally Tomato `Rhymes, sauciness, letters, irony, comedy, comic characters... a proper little turn-on for boys. A must-buy book.' Books for Keeps
