Synopsis

Hope is a Ferris Wheel by Robin Herrera

With an incredibly engaging voice with a lot of heart, Hope Is a Ferris Wheel is the story of a little girl trying to figure out who she is while trying making sense of the world around her. Ten-year-old Star Mackie has just moved to a new town where she lives in a trailer park with her flakey mum and her melancholy older sister, Winter, whom she idolises. Moving to a new town, coupled with Star's unusual fashion sense and layered blue hair, has made it difficult for her to make friends, so Star decides to start her own club at school. Initially named the Trailer Park Club in order to teach other students about the positive aspects of living in a trailer park, the (very small) group evolves into a poetry club where Star discovers a love of Emily Dickinson and through Emily's poetry (especially the poem Hope is the thing with feathers ), learns some important lessons about herself and her own hopes and dreams for the future.

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

Emily Horncastle – age 11

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

Jessica Cobbin – age 7

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

I love lovereading4kids because I’ve read amazing books I would never have picked up, and its opened doors to new genre’s I now love.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
