Series: Fame School: Book 12
By Cindy Jefferies
Marmalade has been selected to dance in a new pop video and he loves the costume he has to wear. He's even inspired to invent an outrageous theme for this year's Rockley Park school prom. But it isn't glamorous and his friends are not impressed. They want an evening of glitter and sparkle - a chance to dress up and shine!
Will Marmalade be the prom king or a party pooper? 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.
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!
