The Lovereading4Kids comment

With the delightful comic style of Louise Rennison meeting the insightful empathetic writing of Jacqueline Wilson, this is an absolute must for any 9+ wannabe film stars. Magically moving and brilliantly funny, this novel written in diary form is full of glamorous tall tales and touching home truths. Readers can join Bathsheba Clarice de Trop, Diary Writer and almost film-star as she makes her way to Dramarama camp. Bathsheba may not yet be famous but she’s at last going somewhere where dreams are made and stars are born. This is the third diary featuring Bathsheba. The first, Chips, Beans and Limousines introduced us to the famous Bathsheba Clarice de Trop, not quite the starlet, sleuth and superstar she pretended to be and then in Socks, Shocks and Secrets she conquered the scary world of starting school in Year 8 having previously been closeted at home with a tutor. Scary!

Synopsis

Doughnuts, Dreams and Drama Queens: The Theatrical Third Diary of Bathsheba Clarice De Trop! by Leila Rasheed

Bathsheba is back - and off to Dramarama Camp! Bathsheba can't wait to go to Dramarama camp with her best friend Keisha. But when Keisha's granny falls ill, Bathsheba has to go by herself. Luckily, lovable Bath soon makes friends, and uses her budding talent to fight off stiff competition from an ambitious camp clique of returning pupils - landing a starring role in the final cabaret! But when Dramarama Camp's director breaks her leg, the special guest-tutor, Hollywood starlet Avocado Dieppe (and Bath's arch-nemesis!) turns directorial diva and steals Bath's role in the show! It looks like Bath's chances of fame are doomed...

About the Author

Leila Rasheed

Lila Rasheed: "I am half Bangladeshi and half English, was brought up in Libya and have lived in Belgium, Italy and Malaysia. I’ve always written prose, but began writing poetry relatively recently, following encouragement from David Morley and the teachers on the MA in Writing at Warwick. A number of my poems refer to ancient myth, which I see as a ‘neutral space’ because of its remoteness and universality, where questions of nationality, culture and parochial allegiance can be sidestepped in favour of ideas I find more meaningful. A selection of my poems is available in the Heaventree New Poets series. Other things I can do include: make tiramisu, order four bread rolls in Danish, and open a beer bottle with my teeth."

Her first novel was Chips, Beans and Limousines: The Fantastic Diary of Bathsheba Clarice De Trop! Followed by two further tales of Bathsheba, Socks, Shocks and Secrets and Doughnuts, Dreams and Drama Queens and a Young Adult novel called The World Turned Upside Down, which was commissioned by the Stratford Upon Avon Literary Festival.
