LoveReading View on Emerald Star

Best-selling Jacqueline Wilson adds a new chapter to her story of feisty Hetty Feather, a foundling child who bounces resiliently through life despite the many knock backs that come her way. Having found her real mother who subsequently dies, Hetty sets out to find her real father. When he fails to provide the ‘real’ home she is looking for, she goes back to her foster home for comfort. Is this where she belongs? Hetty’s questioning and energetic view on life will inspire her  young readers to think vigorously too as they enjoy the roller coaster of her loves and losses.

Emerald Star Synopsis

This is a fantastic new adventure for brave, feisty Hetty Feather - one of Jacqueline Wilson's most well-loved characters. Since leaving the Foundling Hospital, Hetty has seen her fair share of drama, excitement, tragedy and loss. After the death of her beloved mama, she sets off to find a real home at last - starting with the search for her father. But Hetty is no longer a simple country girl, and begins to fear she'll never truly belong anywhere. And even when she is reunited with her beloved childhood sweetheart Jem, Hetty still longs for adventure - especially when an enchanting figure from her past makes an unexpected reappearance. Could a more exciting future lie ahead for Hetty?
