Young readers have long been enthralled by stories of boarding schools and the various adventures the pupils embark upon – think Enid Blyton’s Malory Towers, Jill Murphy’s Miss Cackle’s Academy for Witches and Lyn Gardners’ Swan Academy of Theatre and Dance to name a few. Now Jess Renison has joined this impressive collection of authors and their schools with her fantastic Starlight Academy series. Quoted as being ‘the Malory Towers for the High School Musical generation’, Starlight Academy follows tomboy Cassie as she struggles to adapt to the strict and orderly school life whilst harbouring dreams of ballet stardom.
This is the perfect series for readers 8 and upwards and will capture the imaginations of even the most reluctant of readers. Join us to celebrate the launch of this fabulous new series.
