The Twice-Lived Summer of Bluebell Jones

On her thirteenth birthday, Blue makes a desperate wish. To be transformed into a cool, confident teenager. Enter Red, appearing from nowhere like a wacky fairy godmother. She’s only visible to Blue – in fact, she IS Blue, but a year older! With Red by her side to guide her, Blue can avoid all the gruesome embarrassments that go hand in hand with being thirteen. But Blue’s future self is soon causing heaps of crazy trouble. And as she guides Blue through the minefield of teenage life, what dark secrets is she hiding? A time-travelling mystery with a soft centre and a stunning twist, from the wacky imagination of Susie Day.

Praise for My Invisible Boyfriend:

“A darkly comic romance… Heidi’s mad online life collides hysterically with her real one in a laugh-out-loud, uber-cool teen novel.” Lovereading4kids.co.uk

  • I really enjoyed the book and thought it was mind-blowing and incredible. I love the thought of the two people as the same person; same looks, but opposite personalities. I liked Bluebell and I liked her other version, Red, and I think they are really cool. The sad part for me was when on her 13th birthday, Blue wished that she became a cool, confident teenager in the future; however the wish took an unexpected twist. My favourite part is when Blue meets Merlin for the last time before she goes back as it’s a really special moment.

Authors

  • Susie Day

    Susie Day grew up in Penarth, Wales, with a lisp and a really unfortunate first name.

    Her many careers have included guiding tourists, professional nappy-changing, teaching small people how many beans make five and taller people how to interrogate the beans from a post-structuralist perspective, and herding boarding school students – but she always wanted to be a writer. She firmly believes in the dictum “write what you know”, which is why this book is about cake, watching telly, and helpless romantic flailitude.

    Susie lives in Oxford, and is probably drinking a cup of tea right now (she usually has one around this time of day).

    Her first novel, BIG WOO!, was published in 2008: “I honestly don’t think I’ve ever laughed so hard while reading … very highly recommended” Chicklish.
