Little Stars: A Hetty Feather Adventure

(2 reviews with an average rating of 4 out of 5)

Publisher: Yearling

Hetty Feather has begun a new chapter in her life story. Escaping from Tanglefield's Travelling Circus with her dearest friend Diamond, Hetty is determined to find them positions as glamorous music hall artistes.

Hetty and Diamond quickly become the Little Stars of Mrs Ruby's show, alongside many colourful acts - including an old friend from Hetty's past, Flirty Bertie. But the Cavalcade proves a dangerous place, and Hetty must fight to protect her darling Diamond, who longs for a normal childhood. Meanwhile, Hetty struggles to understand her feelings for Bertie - and for Jem, whom she has never forgotten.

Hetty dreams of a glittering future for herself and Diamond. The bright lights of the London theatre world beckon - will Hetty become a true star?

Note: The book does contain sensitive themes and scenes that some parents may feel are more suitable to a 12+ readership, although they are not graphic in detail. These include alcohol consumption and hints at abuse (hitting and sexual).
