April 2024 Book of the Month

Like many boys in year 7, Daniel mostly likes life at big school, but he’s still finding his way, especially when it comes to working out who to have as friends. His home life is challenging too. He’s responsible for looking after his little sisters when his mum’s chronic fatigue syndrome is bad; money is tight, and dad is often worried.

Things come to a head when he’s offered the part of the Cowardly Lion in the school’s production of The Wizard of Oz. Daniel loves being on stage but is desperate to keep it from his new friends. Fortunately, even if his so-called mates don’t get it, others do.

The second in this new series from Lisa Williamson covers big themes and emotions, and every bit of it feels true to life, Daniel’s troubles and eventual triumph described with warmth, insight and sensitivity. These big-hearted contemporary stories have a very broad appeal.

This book is great for children who want to relate to the story, as the main character is a regular child.

Double Drama is a fun and engaging book about an ordinary boy, called Daniel. His family are not helpful, and he does not have all the gadgets that his friends do. However, things start going out of control when he gets the lead role in the play. His friends will tease him for life if they find out, so he must keep secrets and tell lies if he wants things to stay as they are.

This book made me smile many times and had an amazing array of characters. The plot kept me reading and the pictures were cute and full of personality. I am really enjoying the series, and I cannot wait for the third book. This book is great for children who want to relate to the story, as the main character is a regular child.... Read Full Review
