Summary

Fame School: Book 6
Lucky break
by Cindy Jefferies

  • Talent, stardom, hard work and heartache ... welcome to Fame School!
  • Getting a place at Rockley Park school for talented young performers involves struggle and sacrifice, and that's just the beginning! Life at Rockley Park is packed full of new friends, potential enemies, crises and triumphs.

Marmalade is a gifted dancer but he loves being the class clown and is starting to annoy his teachers, and even his friends. He goes one step too far when he falls while showing off and hurts his ankle. How can he perform in the concert with his leg in plaster?

Cindy Jefferies

Cindy Jefferies is a fresh and funny voice in children’s writing. She comes from a musical background, went to school with Cozy Powell, and was inspired to write Fame School by her involvement with her youngest son’s rock band, Stitch.

Cindy's varied career has included being a Venetian-mask maker and a video DJ. She decided to write Fame School after experiencing the ups and downs of her children, who have all been involved in the music business. Her insight into the lives of wannabe pop stars and her own musical background means that Cindy knows how exciting and demanding the quest for fame and fortune can be.

Cindy lives on a farm in Gloucestershire, where the animal noises, roaring tractors and rehearsals of her son’s indie-rock band, all help her write!

Reader Reviews

lucky break
It's a really good book. I'd love to go to Rockley Park if it was a real place. But I wouldn't get big-headed saying I was the best like marmalade. I loved it so much I read it in a day and a half.

Press & Blog Reviews

Who remembers Fame on television? Even those who are too young will be pleased to welcome Cindy Jefferies' new Fame School series, which will follow Chloe and her friends from their acceptance at Rockley Park School to eventual fame (maybe). The glittery jackets will attract girls who are drawn to follow in Chloe's footsteps. The series has its practical side. Jefferies' children are involved in the music business and she has learned from their experiences. The message is positive and helpful; the story is fast-moving, involving and sure enough to leave readers eager for more.
