Product description

Olivia is sad and lonely and angry. Angry that she’s been dumped with her sister at her grandmother’s stupid old school. Angrier still that the school turns out to be a stage school full of fake theatre rubbish, where there’s no chance for her to do what she loves best: circus skills. But during a turbulent first term, Olivia learns much more than she bargained for about the theatre, friendship, rivalry, her family and herself… An exciting and true-to-life tale of self-discovery and the stage, written by a top theatre critic.

“A gripping story.” Guardian

    Olivia’s first term is a great book. I spent hour after hour reading this book and I just wanted more and more!

    All in all a great book. The only draw back is that there is not enough of it!!

    I absolutely loved ‘Olivia’s First Term’ by Lyn Gardner as it was very girly but also very believable. When you look at the outside you think it is going to be traditional – its not traditional, just realistic! It happens to a lot of girls about Olivia’s age that their parent has to leave them to go to work.

    My favourite character is Eel as she fidgets alot which makes her funny.

    My favourite part is at the end when Tom and Olivia are performing Romeo and Juliet.

    I would rate this book *
