The Lovereading4Kids comment

In a nutshell: friends, drama, adventure | The second story in Natasha Mac a'Bhaird’s lively new series is full of drama and will get rave reviews from readers. Starring a group of friends with a passion for performing, in this episode they decide to put on a version of Cinderella, one that they’ve devised themselves and given a modern setting and twist. Central character Meg has stories of her own to spin: she doesn’t want anyone at her new school to know that her parents are actors. When the news does get out Meg is forced to share another secret, one that she hasn’t even told her best friends in Star Club. Mac a'Bhaird captures all the fun, challenges and camaraderie involved in putting on a show while the background stories and everyday adventures of the four friends are equally convincing and enjoyable. Bravo! ~ Andrea Reece

A Piece of Passion from Editor Helen Carr : When I read the first book in the ‘Star Club’ series, I was so excited to discover that it was EXACTLY the kind I’d have loved as a kid. It’s about four friends who are passionate about performing and set up their own theatre group to put their dancing, acting and authorial skills to good use; each book is narrated by a different Star Club member. So I was delighted to be editing the second book in the series, Starring Meg, learning more about the girls and their ambitions, rehearsals and dreams. Meg, the heroine of this book, has a lot on her plate, with a school performance to put together AND a big secret she’s not sure how to share with the rest of the gang … A fantastic read!
