9780007161386: Boys Beware (Diary)

Another brilliant story containing comedy, calamity and cool characters by acclaimed writer Jean Ure.

Even though Tash and Emily go to a nunnery (well, an all girls' school, which amounts to the same thing!), they are into boys in a BIG WAY. They're also stepsisters and the hugest of best friends. So when their mum and dad have to go Peru for work for a couple of months, leaving the girls in their own flat in Aunty Jay's house, they are seriously excited.

Of course they've got to take their weird elder sister, Ali, hundreds of her Star Trek videos and Fat Man the cat, but apart from that they are INDEPENDENT GIRLS. And when they find out that there's a dishy boy living in the flat downstairs, they just can't believe their luck…

Review:

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

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

Is Anybody There?
“Ure skilfully turns a well-used formula into a thoughtful, thought-provoking novel.”
Books for Keeps

From the Back Cover:

Everyone at school is just so envious of us! Meg Hennessy couldn't believe that we are truly independent. "All on your own?" she kept saying. "You're living completely on your own?"

Hi there. I'm Emily and my stepsister (and hugest best friend) is called Tash. We're into boys in a BIG WAY. Mum and Dad are going away for a couple of months , leaving us in our own flat in Aunty Jay's house and we are seriously excited. Of course we've got to tale our weird elder sister, Ali, and Fat Man the cat, but apart from that we are totally INDEPENDENT GIRLS. We're going to have the most fun ever!
