The stage is set, the crowds are gathering, and the microphones are on ... It's the Sunday Island Music Festival and Elly, Tash, and Sierra have formed a band and are entering a competition to perform onstage with the top-secret headline act. But the girls discover that the festival is in big trouble - and it's up to them to save it!

A perfect summer read for pre-teens. A light-hearted but exciting story with the message of the importance of friendship at its core. Although this is the fourth in the Flip-Flop Club series it works as a stand-alone book too.

The Flip-flop Club: Star Struck by Ellen Richardson

Elly, Tash, and Sierra are back for another Flip-Flop Club adventure! It's time for the Sunday Island Music Festival, and stages, tents, and ice-cream stands cover Melody Meadows. The headline act is being kept top-secret, so when the three girls discover that it's none other than their favourite girl band, they're buzzing with excitement! Especially because the band will be performing on stage with the winner of the Tomorrow's Stars competition, which Elly, Tash, and Sierra have entered! If the girls can just get their dance moves in time and their singing in tune, could they be up there on stage with the stars?

But all is not well at the festival. There's a big problem that could ruin the whole thing for everyone, and only Elly, Tash, and Sierra know about it.

Will they be able to help before it's too late?

About the Author

Ellen Richardson

Ellen Richardson grew up in Missouri, USA. Her long, hot summer holidays were full of barbeques, homemade ice cream, watermelon, and twilight evenings spent catching lightning bugs in order to let them go and watch them spiral into the air like sparks from a bonfire. All the time she was growing up, she longed to see the ocean, and finally did on a school trip when she was the same age as Elly, Tash, and Sierra.

Ellen now lives in England with her family, and every summer they spend time by the sea. Her love for British islands is a big part of the joy of writing the Flip-Flop Club books.
