The Lovereading4Kids comment
Breaking News ! The Threads series is to be developed for TV by Lime Pictures, makers of Grange Hill and Hollyoaks. Tony Wood, Lime Creative Director, said: "Threads is made for popular TV. Great characters, with wonderfully colourful and fashionable British backgrounds, that will appeal throughout the world. But, just as importantly, it shows passion and compassion, in the way it's teenagers themselves who support fiercely held convictions too, and of course who win through for each other. I can't wait to get started.'
The third volume in the deliciously glamorous but also realistic Threads series sees the four friends on the brink of achieving the remarkable goals they have set for themselves. Nonie, Jenny, Crow and Edie have quite different ambitions but suddenly, maybe because the goals are within their grasp, all four are terrified by the challenges that lie ahead. The girls remain great role models for anyone with a strong ambition.
14+ readers who liked Threads will also love Sophia Bennett's new book, The Look.
Threads - Sequins, Stars and Spotlights by Sophia Bennett
Four girls have four dreams. Crow is on the way to becoming an international fashion designer. Jenny's been discovered by a Broadway composer. Edie still wants to go to Harvard. Nonie ...isn't really sure, but knows it's something fashion-related and wonderful. They're growing up and on the brink of glittering careers. So why are their lives so complicated? Why does success demand sacrifices, and which ones are they willing to make? In this, the final book of The Threads trilogy , Nonie discovers that life is just beginning. The girls have choices to make. Who will wait for fame? Who will emerge an outright star? Who will fall in love? And who will turn her back on all her dreams? This time the answers are in New York. It's a long way for Nonie to travel, especially with only one teeny-weeny wheelie bag. But for the sake of her friendships, Nonie will do whatever it takes.

PRAISE FOR BEADS, BOYS AND BANGLES:
