"Fans will love it" ( The Bookseller)
"Jacqueline Wilson is second to none when it comes to writing heartwarming stories with feisty heroines. Diamond is the fourth of her Hetty Feather stories. It stars the irrepressible Diamond, a little girl born in 1883 to penniless parents. When Diamond's mum dies in childbirth she uses her talent as an acrobat to earn money for her family. But her feckless father is appalled and sells her to a cruel circus owner for five guineas." (Emma Lee-Potter Daily Express)
"A master storyteller" ( The Good Book Guide)
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 natural gift for acrobatics, Diamond tries to use her talent to earn a few pennies, but simply brings shame on her family. Then a mysterious, cruel-eyed stranger spots her performing on the street, and makes a deal with her father. Diamond is sold for five guineas, and is taken, alone and frightened, to become an acrobat at Tanglefield's Travelling Circus. The crowds adore Diamond, but life behind the red velvet curtains is far from glamorous. Her master is wicked and greedy, forcing 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?
