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.

Finding it difficult to make friends, Violet finds the perfect solution in Katie, her new pen pal. Soon the two are writing at a fast and furious pace and become very attached to each other. That is, until Katie suggests that they meet…

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

From the Back Cover:

Sometimes I feel like telling Lily that she is ruining my life. If she weren't so shrieky, I might not be so shrinky.

Hi, I'm Violet. Don't go thinking I'm Lily - We may be twins but we are not identical. No way! If I'm a shrinking violet, then my sister's a tiger lily. Lily has friends and goes to parties and I - well, I don't. But I do have one thing Lily hasn't - a pen pal! I'm going to make sure I keep her, even if I have to borrow bits of Lily's life to do it...
