The Lovereading4Kids comment
Readers will be delighted to see this exciting new episode in the life of Hetty Feather, one of Jacqueline Wilson’s liveliest and most engaging heroines. Hetty and her sister Ellen Jane (also known as Emerald and Daisy) have run away from Tanglefield’s Travelling Circus and Hetty is determined they’ll find positions in the Cavalcade music-hall. As ever, the girls face all sorts of difficulties and dangers, but with the help of friends - both old and new – find themselves somewhere to call home. The Hetty Feather stories provide a gentle insight into the hardships of Victorian life, but touch too on the issues that are always important to young readers: friends, family and love. ~ Andrea Reece

Little Stars by Jacqueline Wilson
Hetty Feather has begun a new chapter in her life story. Escaping from Tangle field'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? Starring a cast of wonderful characters, both old favourites and new, this is the fifth fabulous Hetty Feather story.
The Hetty Feather series has now been dramatised on CBBC.

This was the first Wilson novel I'd read, so I was unsure what to expect. What I found was wonderful: a spell-binding and meaningful story about a girl's search for her mother -- Laura Dobbie Waterstones.com
