Stars Summary


Stars by Laura Jennings

Stars is the first title in a brand new performing arts boarding school series for girls of 9+. It has all the warmth of Cathy Cassidy and the behind-the-scenes detail of a dance-world-insider. Dreams are made and stars are born at the Arcadia School of Performing Arts. Has Jess got what it takes? Jessica Bailey's mum has left, her dad's moving abroad for work and Jess is starting over at boarding school. At first she's unsure of herself - then she meets her roommates and begins to feel at home. But standards at Arcadia are high, and Jess soon starts to doubt her talents. She can't dance like Spike or sing like Ash and she doesn't have Foxy's style . . . So when an amazing chance comes her way, she knows she has to take it . . . Four friends dreaming of becoming . . . Stars. Whether you're a fan of Ballet Shoes, X-Factor, Glee, or you just love a great story, Stars has something for everyone. 'An inspiring and unique debut' - Emma Thompson About the authors: Luke Jennings is the author of three novels, including the Booker Prize-nominated Atlantic .

Before becoming a writer Luke trained as a dancer, and worked with classical and contemporary companies for ten years.

You're less likely to know his daughter, Laura Jennings, who is thirteen and lives with her parents, two brothers and her dog Dusty. She says, 'At school I'm quite sporty but I like drama best, because I have always enjoyed acting, singing and performing. I love books, and my favourite author is Stephen King'
