Item description for The Jem Star by Karen Drury...
Brought up amongst the bitter-sweet environment of the fairground, Tansy Strange has seen and heard more than the average twelve-year-old. Maturity has been forced on her by the regular challenges from her brother's mates and her need to rebel from the ever-so-annoying control of her mother. Life is tough. And then there's that problem she's started having with electricity ... Frustrated and troubled, Tansy seeks comfort in the speed of the fairground and in the company of best friend, Mal. But when seventeen-year-old Jem comes to town, Tansy discovers that even best friends can have their secrets.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Jem Star?
An awesome read Sep 14, 2007
I loved this book. It had everything from humour to murder and kept me reading obsessively to the end. If you're thinking of buying this book then you absolutely must! All teenage readers should be aware of it. It's Karen Drury's debut novel and deserves to be widely read. Excellent.
