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?

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.Review:
‘A funny and realistic read – we loved it.’ Mizz
‘Pumpkin Pie has the heroine I've been waiting for.' Times
Grown-ups love Bridget Jones’ diary, but youngsters will adore Violet Alexander’s.
...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.

‘Rhymes, sauciness, letters, irony, comedy, comic characters... a proper little turn-on for boys. A must-buy book.’ Books for Keeps
