Olivia’s First Term included in Summer fiction round-ups

As well as being included in The Guardian’s summer fiction round-up earlier this month, Olivia’s First Term has also received great notices in The Independent and The Telegraph.

Writing for The Independent, Susan Elkin says that, “I would have loved Olivia’s First Term … at about age 12, when I was addicted to Pamela Brown’s The Swish of the Curtain novels … It’s nicely told by Gardner, a well-known theatre critic and champion of theatre for young audiences, with plenty to engross those who love acting, singing and dancing, or just like reading about it.”

In the Telegraph, Dinah Hall writes that, “It has all the classic ingredients for nine year-olds – bitchy rich girl jealous of talented poor girl, parental abandonment, star potential realised.”
