The first of four fabulous books for 9+ girls about friendship in an environmentally challenged world. Researching her school project on fair-trade has been a real eye-opener for Maya. She loves clothes and is appalled to find that her favourite sparkly t-shirts are made by poor children in other countries, who lead lives very different from her own, privileged one. She knows she must do something about it, but how can she make a difference without revealing her pop star secret to the world?
Holly Webb started writing fiction almost by accident, when she was working as an editor. She wrote her first book on trains, and had to leave it on someone's desk with a note as she was too scared to say she'd written it. Since then, she's written many, many more and usually works on the sofa, which is much more comfortable than a train. She lives near Reading with her family and a cat.
