The fifth gloriously funny and poignant book in Jean Ure’s series of ‘secret’ diary stories.

Lily and Violet are twins – physically identical but quite opposite in character. Lily is brash, up-front and in your face. Lily Loudmouth, her dad calls her. Violet is timid and shy. She lives very much in Lily’s shadow – a shrinking violet.

Review:

Shrinking Violet
Grown-ups love Bridget Jones’ diary, but youngsters will adore Violet Alexander’s.
Liverpool Echo

Excellent for any nine-up and will almost certainly lead to an addiction to Ure.
Observer

As an example of pre-adolescent confessional writing, this story is faithfully realistic.
Independent

Becky Bananas
‘The writing transcends any trace of heaviness.’
Guardian

Fruit and Nutcase
‘Jean Ure never puts a foot wrong.’
Daily Telegraph

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
