Praise for Finding Violet Park "A wonderful debut for many reasons ...What marks this book out is not just its charm, warmth and wit, but also the skill with which Valentine braids together the threads" The Guardian "No plot summary cando justice to the particular flavour of this book, both witty and with moments of genuine sweetness ...Excellent." Books for Keeps "Ultra-original and brilliantly written, this will have you laughing and crying too." Mizz Magazine "Has the originality of Mark Haddon, the immediacy of Jacqueline Wilson and the emotional connection of Kevin Brooks. It really does work."Jill Murphy, The Book Bag "A captivating novel from a compelling new voice in teen fiction...hilarious and dramatic in turns."Liverpool Echo "I loved every page of this extraordinary book; a completely unique and involving story...a great book which deserves to be read over and over again."Redhouse Review, Hannah Pitts age 15 "A great story, with a witty and believable main character." tbk mag "If Jenny Valentine doesn't start you reading, I'm not sure what will ... A very creative and highly original plot ... I would also recommend it to sneaky parents who like to snoop around their children's bookcases. But make sure you have time to spare, as you will be unable to put this book down!"Emily Decker,South Wales Argus

Jenny Valentine moved house every two years when she was growing up. She has just moved house again, probably not for the last time. She worked in a wholefood shop in Primrose Hill for fifteen years where she met many extraordinary people and sold more organic loaves than there are words in her first novel, Finding Violet Park. She has also worked as a teaching assistant and a jewellery maker. She studied English Literature at Goldsmiths College, which almost put her off reading but not quite. Jenny is married to a singer/songwriter and has two children.
