The Twice-Lived Summer of Bluebell Jones

The Twice-Lived Summer of Bluebell JonesWhat if you could have a second chance?

All Bluebell Jones wants for her thirteenth birthday is to be someone else: a carefree, confident teenager, like her big sister Tiger. Mum and Dad’s band are playing tiny Welsh seaside town Penkerry all summer long, so this is it: her big chance to transform into a whole new girl, before Mum’s new baby arrives and she’s a big sister too.

But she won’t have to do it alone. When Blue blows out her birthday candle, up pops Red, her fourteen-year-old self: brave, snarky, and surrounded by brilliant friends – Fifties-obsessed Fozzie, Dan the Donut, and the mysterious, charming Merlin. Red’s everything Blue wants to be. With her help from the future, predicting every embarrassing mis-step, Blue’s guaranteed to have the summer of her life.

But Red’s got a secret…

Don’t look so appalled, Blue. People lie to themselves all the time.’
