From popular children’s author Holly Webb comes a new series of stories on the theme of friendship. Maya and her friends are working on a Fair-trade project at school. The girls become interested in Fair-trade clothing and decide to put on a fashion show to raise awareness and campaign to change their school uniform supplier. (Readers will become well informed about Fair-trade issues as they read!) Maya’s secret is that her mum is a famous singer and she does not want the celebrity attention that goes with having a famous mum so keeps her true family identity hidden. However, it is Maya’s secret that saves the day when the fashion show runs into problems. The theme of friendship runs throughout the book, but perhaps because the series is aimed at 7-9 year-olds it is explored in limited depth. This will undoubtedly be popular with established fans of Holly Webb and new readers in this age group who are often keen on series fiction.
