What to expect

A coming of age story about self-discovery and independence from the Queen of Tween, Jean Ure.

‘I’ve always been the quiet one in my dramatic family. Not a drama queen, or a genius composer, or a twin, but Just Peachy. Mum says I’ve got my own thing going on… I just wish I knew what that was!

When I decide I want to attend Sacred Heart school rather than Summerville where my family have always gone everyone finally stops to listen! Stepping out on my own is scary, but I need space to find out who I am and what I’m good at.’

A new novel from Jean Ure, about a girl trying to find who she really is – and maybe a friend along the way…
