Description of this Book

The second fantastic book about ten-year-old FRANKIE FOSTER -- the girl who wants to help, but ends up causing chaos! Frankie Foster loves fixing people's problems. Her help might not always be welcome -- and she might cause the odd total disaster -- but Frankie always fixes things. Eventually! When Frankie's mum agrees to have a friend's daughter to stay for a fortnight, it falls on Frankie's shoulders to look after Amelia. Having another girl share her broom cupboard of a bedroom is one thing, but wherever Amelia goes, trouble seems to follow, however hard Frankie tries to keep her out of it! Frankie certainly gets more than she bargains for with Amelia, but in typical Frankie fashion, she soon realises how being different is no bad thing and learns some important lessons along the way! like the true meaning of friendship and how to keep life 'sweet'!

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Here's just a sample of what children are saying about Frankie Foster: Amazing! Full of shocks and surprises on every page! Beth, age 9 Fizzy Pop was so exciting, I couldn't put it down! Emily, age 11 Frankie Foster steps out of the pages of this spell-binding book and comes to life. Imogen, age 12 Jean Ure's books are funny, funky, feisty -- and fantastic reads! -- Jacqueline Wilson Praise for Passion Flower: A funny and realistic read -- we loved it. -- Mizz Praise for Pumpkin Pie: The heroine I've been waiting for. -- Times Praise for Shrinking Violet: Excellent for any nine-up and will almost certainly lead to an addiction to Ure. -- The Observer Praise for Becky Bananas: The writing transcends any trace of heaviness. -- The Guardian
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 4 stars (out of 5)
