Turning to Jelly

Publisher: Macmillan Children's Books

Review

Jelly, Myf and Roobs are starting big school. Best friends and founder members of the Faithful Club, the trio find that life is now far more challenging. They are confronted by cool gangs, fit boys and social death if you get your clothes wrong. Jelly's hand-knitted beret on the first day is not a good start. So she decides that to throw a big party. But when scary Billy and control-freak Bethany turn up, things don't go entirely to plan...

Jelly is the flakey, funny heroine in a hilarious new pre-teen series. Comical illustrations and candid observations of an embarrassingly chaotic mother, pompous older brother and  greedy dog all add to the humour of this entertaining read.
