The Lovereading4Kids comment

The school play has long been known as the best place for romance…Emily’s ambition is to star in the school play and to fall in love so everything should be going fine. However, Emily’s outburst against the choice of Wuthering Heights as the play puts everything in jeopardy and the new boy doesn’t come up to standard either. .. A romp of a novel with school, drama and badly behaved teens all featuring strongly.

Synopsis

Wuthering Hearts by Kay Woodward

Passion, the Yorkshire moors, a wild and handsome stranger ...sound familiar? When Robert arrives in town with his dark good looks and mysterious background, Emily has a huge crush! It's almost enough to take her mind off this year's school play ...miserable, wailing Wuthering Heights. But Robert is no prince, with his black moods and fierce temper. The beautiful untamed moors would be the perfect backdrop to their fiery romance, if only Emily could work it out. On stage or off stage, will Emily ever be the Cathy to his Heathcliff?

Reviews

Kay Woodward is one of the funniest British authors out there. Wondrous Reads Shuffle along Jacqueline Wilson, this author knows what teens actually do these days. ComaCalm's Corner Perfect summer holiday reading - a sweet, dramatic and funny re-telling of Wuthering Heights. -- Luisa Plaja Chicklish The intended audience is 12+, and I'm way past that, but I was still hooked. It's a good read, a must-read for Bronteites, and could work as an easy introduction into Emily Bronte's original. The Squeee A very fun read that will appeal to younger teenagers ... quirky and humorous. Daisy Chain Book Reviews
