About the Author

Jean Ure was born in Surrey and wrote her first novel when she was six years old. She spent her teenage years writing and had her first book published when she was sixteen. Jean lives in a three-hundred-year-old house in the centre of Croydon with her husband and their family of rescued dogs and cats.

Reviews

Gr 5-8-Shy, quiet, mousy Honey de Vito would never have had the courage to run away from home if it hadn't been for her domineering best friend Jade. The two girls couldn't be more dissimilar in personality, but both believe their parents are mistreating them, so they hastily make a break for the big city. Jade and Honey leave a trail of clues indicating that they have headed towards Glasgow, while in reality they take a train to London. The pair spend time worrying about getting caught or seen, and are less concerned about what they will actually do when they get to London. After discovering that running away isn't all that exciting, Honey finds an inner strength she didn't know she had, and Jade realizes that she belongs at home. Jean Ure's tale (HarperCollins UK, pap. 2007) of friendship and family is narrated by Kate Byers. Her voicing of the characters may turn off listeners. Jade's mother has an almost unbearable whiny tone, Honey's voice is whispery and babyish, and Jade's tone is overbearing. An additional purchase at best.-Casey LaPlante, East Windsor Middle School, CT Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.

Guardian Praise for Fruit and Nutcase: 'Jean Ure never puts a foot wrong.' Daily Telegraph Praise for 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
