Gemma in Love
by Noel Streatfeild
Evrything is going really well for Gemma until her mother's announcement - She's coming home from Hollywood and Gemma will have to go to London to live with her. But how can Gemma leave when she's about to star in "Romeo and Juliet".
Gemma goes from strength to strength at the drama school, but while she's so taken up with her own life, unexpected things are happening at home and in Hollywood. Her well-planned future looks as though it's about to be turned upside down. Everything is going marvellously for Gemma until her mother's announcement. She's coming home from Hollywood and Gemma will have to go to London to live with her. But how can Gemma leave Headstone when she's about to star in Romeo & Juliet? She can't just walk out on the play -- or on her wonderful co-star. And what about her cousins? All three of them have changed so much since Gemma's first appearance in their family, and Gemma has changed too from the poor little rich girl she was. Now that it's time to leave, she realises how much she's grown up; but she hadn't expected to become so attached to her "ordinary" family...
