LoveReading View on The Bed and Breakfast Star

Elsa longs to be a star and she makes her life sound very glamorous indeed to try to make her wish come true. The reality is very different. As her family moves from one dump to another, Elsa creates a background of jokes to try to ease the pain of the increasingly depressing homes. Not that anyone is laughing much. But, Elsa finds she is a star – almost without meaning to be. Jacqueline Wilson is at her best in this story about a child’s use of humour for survival.

The Bed and Breakfast Star Synopsis

A lively tale by the award-winning author of "The Suitcase Kid". Elsa does her best to cheer up her family by telling jokes, but no one seems to laugh much any more - not since they lost their lovely house and had to move into a bed and breakfast hotel.
