About this book

Fame School: Book 14
Trick or treat

  • 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.

Danny’s drumming is going badly, so to cheer him up Chloe and her talented friends at Rockley Park decide to treat him to a surprise Halloween party. But there are some spooky things going on that no one can explain. Is somebody playing tricks – or is Fame School really haunted? Whatever happens, Danny’s in for a wail of a time.


Cindy Jefferies

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!

The latest adventure in Cindy Jefferies’ upbeat and fun-filled series featuring a bunch of wannabe popstars who are learning the tricks of the trade at special music school. Fame School has a cast of lovable and lively characters whose mishaps and musical melodramas are perfectly in tune with any child aged seven and over who ever dreamt of being a star. The perfect way to learn how to cope with triumph and disaster...
The Lancaster Guardian
Is there any tween girl who doesn't love Boarding School stories? Add in a STAGE SCHOOL boarding school and this series is made of win! Despite joining this series at number 14, I was easily able to pick up the story. This book has everything, fun characters (Marmalade the mischievous dancer and Danny the brooding drummer my favourites!) a spooky mystery, a hint of romance and once again, boarding school! This is a must for girls aged 8-11 who will love this book, and I suspect the whole series! Fun from start to finish.
Heaven, Hell and Purgatory Book Reviews
As well as the mystery ghost which is on the prowl, TRICK OR TREAT delves accurately into the psyche of someone with talent, who suddenly finds themselves unable to progress and actually start to get worse.
