9780007433179: Shine

A wonderful novel from a major new voice in tween girl fiction, with a stunning new cover look.
Tiff's mum is a thief and she's about to get caught...

Twelve-year-old Tiff loves her mum, Carla, who is glitzy and fun and always coming home with shiny new amazing stuff. The trouble is, Tiff's mum doesn't buy things, she takes them. The fact is, Tiff's mum is a thief...

When Carla gets caught, Tiff’s shiny life is ruined. She's packed off to a remote island to live with Carla's family. A family her mum never even talks about and that Tiff has never even met! How can she survive in this dull, dull place?

But the island of Sark isn't as awful as Tiff imagined it would be. The islanders are kind and honest and she's happy spending time with them. So three months later, when it's finally time for her mum to join her, Tiff can't help feeling more than a little bit worried...

About the Author:

Kate Maryon is a homeopath and complimentary therapist who has worked with many young people. She lives in Somerset with her partner and her large Newfoundland dog, Ellie.

Kate loves chocolate, British films, eating out, reading, writing and lying on sunny beaches. She dislikes snakes, spiders, peppermint and honey.

Review:

Praise for ‘Invisible Girl’:
“Kate Maryon’s characters stay with you long after the book is finished.” Jenny Valentine

Praise for ‘Shine’:
“[Kate Maryon] understands a child's deepest feelings, including the negative ones, and she allows Tiff to run through the gamut of them as she slowly works her way through feelings of abandonment, loneliness, fear and anger, until eventually happiness and love can resurface. Readers will recognise all her thoughts. It's an uplifting story which begins with a huge disaster and ends with a new start for everyone. It will reassure and comfort its readers and it exactly inhabits their emotional landscape... I think tween girls are going to love it.” [Four stars] TheBookBag.co.uk

“I read Shine in 4 days and I think that it is amazing. I was glued to it, which made my mum quite annoyed especially when I was supposed to be getting to sleep.” Olivia, aged 10

“Shine is favourite book in the world! It is the first long book that I have actually read all the way through. Usually I start reading and get bored half way through. This is a great book and I would DEFINITELY recommend it! Kiera, aged 10

“Shine is amazing. I really loved it so much.” Dana, aged 10
