..... but I'm looking for two books and I can't google them and it's annoying the life out of me.
First book is a child's book about 4 schoolgirls and one character was called Felicity. Her nickname was Fij. I read it around 1996 - 1999. I think it may have been part of a series of books about these characters. That's it. That's all I've got. It only came into my head as I was talking about the name Felicity and now I can't stop thinking about this blooming book!
Second book I can offer a few more clues. It is definitely a series of books, sure it's by a famous ish author. It's about 4 sisters, one of which is called Phoebe. I think it's set near the coast and the sisters are always getting into trouble. They love reading and are quite poor. I read these books again around 1996-1999.
If I search this I just get a blank stare from google!! Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks for all your super quick replies everyone, they aren't the ones I'm thinking of I'm afraid. It's so annoying that I can't remember them enough to know the name but I can remember the enough to know what they aren't! The Felicity books were set in the UK around the 1990s. I have a vague recollection they were at an all girls school. (I was going through a boarding school, jolly hockey sticks reading phase!) Thanks again everyone.
Well last night my son woke up and wouldn't go back to sleep but in my sleep deprived state my brain came up trumps! The books about the sisters are a series called The Exiles by Hilary McKay. It just popped into my brain, the name of the author and everything. Hopefully he won't sleep tonight and I'll remember the school book now
