Jess Morgan's life has always been chaotic. When a startling new reality cannot be denied, it's clear that everything she believed about herself is a lie. She is linked to a world where humans-'hot-bloods'-are disposable entertainment. Life on a rundown estate-her single mum's alcoholism and violent boyfriend-become the least of Jess's worries.
About the Author
Sue has written around 80 books for a variety of age groups. She is best known for her multi-million selling Magic Kitten, Magic Puppy, Magic Ponies and Magic Bunny series - for readers aged 5-8 years. While very sweet and magical, these books deal with real issues too, like bullying, loneliness, integration, dealing with the death of a pet - and the books reflect the diversity of modern culture. We Other is Sue's first book for Teen Plus readers - although adults will enjoy it too. Fans of her original Magic Kitten books, now in their teens will love We Other, where gritty reality sits side by side with fantasy. Sue says, 'In We Other I've built a magical world that has elements of the fairy books I love - but with a modern twist and outlook that is entirely my own. I have lived with Jess Morgan, the main character; Ivy Stark painter of nightmare scenes; Caleb Farmer who is trying to break away from a domineering father, and the many, many others in the book - both human and otherwise, for about 3 years. And I love everyone of them - faults and all.'
* A fast moving, well-knit plot with a wealth of intriguing characters from sensuous, cruel fairies to an alcoholic mother tied to a violent boy-friend. * Written in two very different and engaging styles for two different realities- a gritty council estate and a world of dark, cruel and mysterious forces set in a rich, twilight landscape. * A blend of the familiar-awkward teenagers who feel adrift in a world of inadequate adults-and the fantastic with an elemental focus on strong emotions-love, jealousy and revenge. * Sue Bentley has developed her engaging and fluent style of the best selling Magic Kitten and Puppy series into a vibrant and strong prose style attractive to older readers.
