Stars on Ice

Stars on Ice (Skate School)

This book was brimming with drama, laughs, romance... and amazing, tense ice-skating scenes where you could almost hear the swish of blades on ice... Sparkling, feel-good fiction...

This modern spin on a much-loved classic will have you swaying between all manner of emotions as you're gripped by its pages.

'...a well written and fun-filled tale...'
The School Librarian

The text is laugh-out-loud funny, easy to read and the story rattles along at a great pace.

Jane Airhead is a humorous look at teen life and relationships, as seen through the eyes of Jane Eyre enthusiast Charlotte. The use of Jane Eyre references is a great homage to Charlotte Brontë, and has now made me want to check out the book. As someone who doesn't do too well with classic literature, this is quite an achievement…

… a gem of a novel; like all the classics, it’s got misunderstandings, a girl who thinks she’ll never get the interest of a boy, mistaken identity and a dollop of farce.

Ice Princess

Ice Princess (Skate School)

A light, enjoyable read, the new Skate School series holds its own against other entries in the "boarding school" genre. It is sufficiently skating-savvy to appeal to knowledgeable skaters without confusing non-skaters.

'a fantastic present to give or receive'

With writing as fresh and clean as the ice on which her plucky heroine leaps and twirls to success, Kay Woodward's story ... is a genuine delight, and very much more Noel Streatfeild (Ballet Shoes) than Francine Pascal (Sweet Valley High) ... original, non-clichéd, entertaining, and totally up-to-date. Cool!
