Hi and welcome back to another review in Abigail’s Book Nook, this book is Little Stars (a Hetty Feather Adventure) by Jacqueline Wilson.
“Hetty Feather has begun a new chapter in her life story. Escaping from Tanglefield’s Travelling Circus with her dearest friend Diamond, Hetty is determined to find them positions as glamorous music hall artistes.
Hetty and Diamond quickly become the Little Stars of Mrs Ruby’s show, alongside many colourful acts – including an old friend from Hetty’s past, Flirty Bertie. But the Cavalcade proves a dangerous place, and Hetty must fight to protect her darling Diamond, who longs for a normal childhood. Meanwhile, Hetty struggles to understand her feelings for Bertie – and for Jem, whom she has never forgotten.
Hetty dreams of a glittering future for herself and Diamond. The bright lights of the London theatre world beckon – will Hetty become a true star?”
So, this weeks review is on a Jacqueline Wilson classic… Hetty Feather. Hetty is no longer in the tight grasp of the foundling hospital. She now cares and looks after her fellow circus friend Diamond. After making a daring escape from the cruel life of the circus, Hetty is more determined than ever to make a fresh start by going to a grand music hall to perform. Will Hetty and Diamond finally have a happy ending or will it all go up in flames?
This book was outstanding! It was so good in fact that I didn’t want to put it down! It was a very breathtaking book indeed. Most parts of the book were shocking, but a lot of it was also amusing. I would definitely want to read this book over and over again.
I would say that my favourite character has to be Hetty. She always looks after Diamond and is very independent and helpful.
The character I absolutely detested was the one and only Samson. He is the boyfriend of the music hall owner. Samson is a scary drunk brute. For some reason I don’t know why Samson tried to kiss Hetty!! EEEWWWW! Even though he is way older than Hetty. Now that is just weird. HA HA!
I would totally recommend Little Stars but I think maybe for older kids like me, I wouldn’t let my little sister (she is 9) read it just yet!
See ya next time!!
