Family Fan Club

Written by Jean Ure

Illustrated by Karen Donnelly

Family Fan Club Synopsis

A humorous, poignant and heartwarming story of four girls and their exasperating parents. Reissued in the Jean Ure branding. People always fall out after they're married. I'm going to stay single. Jasmine, Laurel, Rose and Daisy. Four very different sisters, four very different attitudes! As if living with each other wasn't bad enough, living with their parents is worse - particularly parents who are both actors. Please! But after the Great Row, the girls find themselves living with Mum, while Dad has gone to America to find work. How are the sisters going to achieve their own personal ambitions: become an actress, model, writer, vet... when they can't even achieve their joint ambition - to reunite parents who are on different continents?

Family Fan Club Press Reviews

Passion Flower `A funny and realistic read - we loved it.' Mizz 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
