Praise for Jenny Valentine: 'Valentine has the essential storyteller's gift of making you want to read on - and to know more even after the book is finished.' Guardian 'The award-winning Valentine has a keen eye for the idiosyncrasies of young children, and the rhythms of family life.' The Bookseller '[Valentine] has a wonderful ability to take readers right into the hearts and souls of her central characters, and reading her is always a truly vicarious experience.' The Bookbag Praise for Broken Soup "...a life-affirming, witty, romantic read, about freedom, responsibility and love." - Sunday Times, Culture 'delicately written ... A solid tale of what it takes to grow up and how to ask for help.' Publishers Weekly "Valentine's appeal lies in conveying life and hope." - The Times "...a very funny and sad story about what really makes a family, and how we can lose our common sense in times of crisis and find it again through love." - The Daily Mail "Beautifully written and emotionally sure, this is unputdownable and should keep even the most moany teenager quiet until it's finished." - The Independent
