The 7th and final in the OLIVIA series and eagerly awaited by lots of fans. If you have a child aged 9+ who is keen to perform then this is the series for them. The books are gripping, inspiring, full of fun, with a cast of characters that every 9-12 year old girl will admire. But don't just take our word for it, check out the following review from a young fan called Omala.

"I really enjoyed the Olivia series because they were so exciting, gripping and interesting...I’ve even started a circus skills course because I was so inspired by the books. You would not know how much I love the books! I have read and re-read the series loads and loads of times! I cannot go on holiday without knowing that they are in my bag! They’re my favourite books!”

A message from Kirsty Stansfield, Nosy Crow Fiction...“The Olivia books are fantastic for girls who love to lose themselves in great stories beautifully written. Olivia is a girl after everyone’s heart – you’ll laugh with her, cry with her, and always come back to find out what happens to her next!"

Synopsis

Olivia's Curtain Call by Lyn Gardner

Olivia and her friends are auditioning for a production of Romeo and Juliet in the West End. It makes Olivia realise just how much she wants to be an actress, like her mum was. But her father asks her to perform with him in a high-wire stunt instead. How can she choose between her parents? And love is in the air at the Swan School of Theatre and Dance. But when the curtain falls, will everyone get their fairytale happy ending?

Reviews

‘This is a gripping story with a sharp eye for the power struggles within the classroom.’ – The Guardian

‘with it’s stage-school setting it is strongly reminiscent of Noel Streatfield … It has all the classic ingredients for nine-year-olds’ – The Telegraph

‘A story of friendship and family with a heady backdrop of theatre and dance.’ – The Bookseller

‘A hugely enjoyable, escapist, quite traditional series of children’s books … I felt as though I was ten years old again.’ – The Stage

About the Author

Lyn Gardner

Lyn Gardner is the author of Olivia’s First Term and the other Olivia books. She was born in London and now lives near Richmond Park with her partner and two daughters. A theatre critic on The Guardian, she goes to the theatre five or six nights a week, which should leave no time for writing books at all.

Before she became a journalist, Lyn was a tea lady, a waitress and sold advertising space for a magazine called Sludge. Her ambitions are to learn to tap dance and walk the high wire, but it may have to be the low wire as she is a bit scared of heights!
