Gemma and Sisters Summary


Gemma and Sisters by Noel Streatfeild

Gemma, once a child film-star in Hollywood, is living with her cousins in a small provincial town. Having thought that she would find it a terrible backwater, she now finds that her cousins are much more talented than she is! There's tremendous excitement in the Robinson household. Gemma and her cousins have put together an act using all their talents, and they're an instant hit! Everyone wants to see Gemma & Sisters. Robin, the younger brother, has swirled some new tunes, and his friend Nigs is on the drums. Ann sings solo and Lydia, the show-off of the family, is thrilled to be able to dance in front of an audience again. Gemma is a sensation on the banjo, but she has an awful feeling of foreboding. Then one day disaster strikes. Lydia, in a stupid moment of revenge, has an accident and badly injures her hip. It looks like the end for Gemma & Sisters; but much more important: will Lydia ever dance or even walk again?

Gemma and Sisters Reviews


"Noel Streatfeild's position in the children's book world is unique. She is endlessly inventive, full of verve and a real understanding of childhood. Her stories are rich in documentary interest and entertainment, escapism of a most satisfying sort." 'TLS

About Noel Streatfeild


Noel Streatfeild, the plain middle child between two pretty and talented sisters, trained at RADA and acted for nine years before writing Ballet Shoes, an instant bestseller, in 1936. As vicarage daughter, factory girl, actress, model, social worker, writer, and crusader for good books, Noel touched many aspects of life. Her experiences enriched her stories, which were so popular that, by her eightieth birthday, she had earned herself the titles of "a national monument". She won the Carnegie Medal in 1939 and died in 1986.
