Star for a Day

Written by Jean Ure

Illustrated by Charlie Alder

Star for a Day Synopsis

A warm and wise tale about the unique challenges of pre-teen life from a master of the genre. Lucy has lived her entire life in her sister's shadow - Lola is always the centre of attention and constantly in need of new clothes for a party or kit for her dancing, meaning Lucy often goes without. But when a talent show comes to town, an unlikely ally helps Lucy step into the spotlight for once. Will Lucy discover her own star quality? Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 8+
