The Lovereading4Kids comment
Full of friendship and drama, Olivia’s First Term captures the very special atmosphere of a stage school. Olivia’s life is full of dancing classes and acting classes but Olivia is really from the circus like her father so, whenever she can, she slips away and practices a bit on the high wire! But Olivia is also much poorer than most of the other students and there is one girl in particular who is determined to make her feel bad about it! How Olivia finds courage to stand up to bullies and be herself is a gripping and heartwarming drama.
Olivia's First Term by Lyn Gardner
Olivia is sad and lonely and angry - angry that she's been dumped with her sister Eel at her grandmother's school, and angrier still that that school turns out to be a stage school where there's no encouragement for her to do what she loves best: practice her circus skills. But in the course of a turbulent first term, Olivia finds out much more than she bargained for about the theatre, about friendship, about enemies, about her family and about herself.
