Synopsis

Megastar: The Fincredible Diary of Fin Spencer by Ciaran (Author) Murtagh

A boy, a book and a bucket of trouble . . . Fin has promised never to use his diary again. A little old lady gave it to him at a funfair and it turned out to be magic - it let him change what happened during the day as long as he made a wish that evening. But it was more trouble than it was worth and got him into all sorts of scrapes at school and at home. But he needs help. A newish boy, Cliff Sharpnel, is stepping on his toes. Not only does he play the guitar, but he's interested in Claudia Ronson - the most beautiful girl at school. When their teacher, Mrs Johnson, announces that she has written a musical called HOT RODS Fin thinks he's too cool to audition. Until he discovers that the hero gets to kiss the girl at the end - mostly likely to be Claudia - and that Cliff has put himself up for the part! Fin has some serious backtracking to do. The diary HAS to come out again. And in his fight to become the Oscar-winning megastar Fin has to scramble to 'do' and 'undo' the havoc that ensues . . .

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.

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
