Diamond
By Jacqueline Wilson

I don’t belieive it. It was only yesterday I was searching for any sign of this trailer knowing the book was coming out soon. No luck – couldn’t find it at all and then today on Facebook (thanks Random House) it was there. It pays to be connected if you want to know what is going on. Facebook and Twitter are great ways to keep up with things.

So here it is for all you Jacqueline Wilson fans and I know there are thousands of you.
Diamond is part of the Hetty Feather’s World series.

Diamond was a dainty, delicate daughter – and a bitter disappointment to her penniless parents who only wanted a boy!. Diamond discovers she has an amazing natural talent for acrobatics and tries to use her talent to earn a few pennies. Sadly this brings shame on her family and makes matters worse. Then a mysterious stranger spots her performing on the street. He makes a deal with her father and Diamond is sold. She is forced to become an acrobat at Tanglefield’s Travelling Circus by her wicked and greedy master. Will Diamond make friends or will life just be too dangerous and lonely?

How will she cope? What about loneliness? What about friends and what of Queenie?
Great for younger children and fans of Jacqueline Wilson will not be disappointed.

Here’s a little snippet about the book from the author herself.

Emerald Star
Book 3
By Jacqueline Wilson

I have read a number of Jacqueline Wilson books and enjoyed them. This series differs from many of the dysfunctional stories that have made her a household name. It is historical, set in Victorian England and brings in Hetty’s story with a view to the life of young girls back in the 1800’s.

Hetty Feather is brave and fiesty. She was left in a Foundling Hospital as a baby, has worked in horrible workhouses, suffered tragedy and loss and now in Emerald Star, Hetty is trying to find her father. And if she does, will it all end in tears?
Check out all three trailers and then pop in to your local library or bookstore to get a copy especailly if you are a fan of J. Wilson.
