Description

The fantastic new novel from bestselling author Jacqueline Wilson, starring Diamond, the little circus acrobat who first appeared in the hugely popular Hetty Feather books: Hetty Feather, Sapphire Battersea and Emerald Star.

Diamond wasn’t always a star. Born to penniless parents who longed for a strong, healthy son, she was a dainty, delicate daughter - and a bitter disappointment.

Discovering she has an extraordinary gift for acrobatics, Diamond uses her talent to earn a few pennies, but brings shame on her family. Then a mysterious, cruel-eyed stranger spots her performing, and makes a deal with her father. Diamond is sold for five guineas, and is taken to become an acrobat at Tanglefield’s Travelling Circus.

The crowds adore Diamond, but life behind the velvet curtains is far from glamorous. Her wicked master forces Diamond to attempt ever more daring and dangerous tricks, until she is terrified to step into the ring. But there are true friends to be found at the circus, too: the gentle Mister Marvel; the kindly Madame Adeline; and the glorious Emerald Star, Tanglefield’s brand-new ringmaster, and Diamond’s heroine.

When life at the circus becomes too dangerous to bear any longer, what will the future hold for Diamond? And will her beloved Emerald be a part of it?

    I think that this book is very good and interesting. This book is about a girl called Ellen-Jane, but later she is called Diamond. Diamond had 3 older brothers and an older sister named after the people in the bible and her mom wanted the final boy from the list of names, but she had Diamond instead. Eventually Diamond's mom had the son she wanted but she died. Diamond's dad grows mean and depressed and makes all 3 oldest sons go away for jobs, and keeps her older sister home with the baby. At this time he hates Diamond because she looks so much like the mom. They start running out of money so Diamond starts secretly doing acrobatics in public and earns money that way. Later, a mean old man named Beppo or Mister who runs a circus act, comes and tries to take her away. Her dad comes along and sells Diamond to Beppo. Diamond becomes a circus girl and has to work very hard. Later on when she is performing, a girl from another one of Jaqueline Wilsons's books, a girl called 'Hetty Feather' comes in, and becomes part of the circus. You follow Diamond in all her acrobatics and the skills she learns and eventually she runs away with Hetty Feather. That is where the book ends.

    My favorite part was when Diamond's Older sister Mary-Martha and her baby brother John come and visit her. I like it how they are happy to see each other and how they talk about how things are back at their home.

    My least favorite part was when Hetty got upset because Madame Adeline was replaced with new horse riders who are actually very nice. She gets mad at Diamond for liking them and she starts to get scared because Hetty isn't caring for her anymore.

    I recommend this book to kids aged 7-13
