Search for a Star
by Cindy Jefferies
Ellie's thrilled to be doing work experience at teen magazine, Heart, even though life isn't all celebrity chat and fashion makeovers for the wannabe journalist. She's given the job of walking the Editor's pampered pooch, when she really wants to track down a famous author for an exclusive interview. But could the little dog help lead her to the star?
“A series just right for 'tweens'. A light hearted and fun read that girls will love.”
Parents in Touch
“A classy story full of hot topics and cool operators.”
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!

Parents in Touch
An ambitious and entertaining new series which combines the buzz of working on a celebrity magazine with some gritty, real-life issues. Aimed at the eight and over age group, the stories contain plenty of action centred around hot topics like celebrity, fashion and gossip but also reveal that life in the fast lane is not all glitz and glamour.
Humorous in parts and surprising in others...a fantastic book...9/10.
