Funny, action-packed, yet touching, this book takes you on the roller coaster of worries and dreams that is Maddy Blue's life.

Synopsis

Jealousy Junkie by Carrie Bright

Maddy Blue lives her whole life through magazines. She wishes she could trade her boring lifestyle for an exciting, action packed adventure - just like she reads about in her favourite mags! She blurs the edges of her real life and the fantasy magazine world to help her deal with her everyday existence, and believes all that the horoscopes/5-min quizzes/style tips/problem pages tell her. Maddy is constantly striving to discover who she can be, and live up to her own dreams. Funny, action-packed, yet touching, this book takes you on the roller coaster of worries and dreams that is Maddy Blue's life. Scott and Maddy are best friends, and born outsiders. But when the new girl in school, Starr, threatens to come between them, Maddy is left feeling helpless and even more insecure. Maddy wishes she could be just like Starr, who has a glamorous lifestyle and looks to die for. Will she realise that three doesn't have to be a crowd, and that she is great just the way she is?

About the Author

Carrie Bright
Ceri Worman was Carrie Bright’s original name - her name change was partly because no one could pronounce it. Carrie is obvious to pronounce on sight and similar to her real name, whilst Bright is a family name.

Ceri was born in Wales but moved to England at the age of three. Her family originally moved to Oxford but when Ceri was seven they settled in South Yorkshire. After gaining a History degree from Hull University, Ceri worked as a librarian for various London libraries, where her "broad northern accent" was ironically mocked! After a stint as an English teacher in south London, Ceri moved, with her young son to South America.

When her son became especially fluent in Spanish swearwords, Ceri decided it was time to return to England. They settled back in South Yorkshire and Ceri began to write her first children's book, The Adventures of Jamie B, Superspy, based, in part, on her son, Marcus, now an adventurous teenager.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
