The Lovereading4Kids comment
One of our Books of the Year 2014 Best-loved for her classic Second World War title Goodnight Mister Tom, Michelle Magorian brings the excitement of being part of a theatre company to life in this action-packed and rip-roaring adventure. Twelve year old Josie comes from a theatrical family so it is no surprise that she grabs a place at drama school or – more remarkably – finds herself stepping in as a substitute for a play at the last minute. But there’s something fishy going on behind the scenes and, in a case of mistaken identity, Josie is kidnapped! Set in the 1960s Michelle Magorian peppers the story with excellent period detail which adds greatly to the flavour of this fun-to-read story.
Impossible! by Michelle Magorian
12-year old Josie attends a finishing-style stage school. She dreams of being on stage, but is firmly told she has no acting ability. Fortunately she finds herself cast as a boy in an American comedy – but she is mistaken for the star and kidnapped and imprisoned in a dockside warehouse. Managing to escape, she and a fellow runaway take refuge in the Theatre Royal in Stratford. They are offered work by the legendary Joan Littlewood, founder of the Theatre Workshop Company. Much to Josie’s surprise this leads to a role in a Saturday-morning film. However, the kidnappers haven’t given up yet and they are on Josie’s trail… Impossible! is a story that will keep readers enthralled chapter by chapter as the drama unfolds- rather like the film that Josie is in.
