    "Gripping story."

    I started reading this book quite a few years ago with a friend, however the copy we had borrowed had the last CD missing so I was really pleased to find that this book finally became available on audible. How would you feel if you found out that the father who had raised you for 13 years was not your real father? This is the story of Juliet Cheney, her dream is to be an actress saw her and her friend decides to audition for a theatre production of northern lights. She obtains the leading role, however the excitement of getting the role is tempered by everything that is going on in her home life. This is a story of courage and determination and asks the question do we really know who we are. Although this is a book that is designed for teenagers, it does ask a lot of interesting questions, I really really enjoyed it and that narrator Claire Corbett really brought the book to life. She is a fantastic narrator and he's really good at different voices giving each character their own voice and personality. This was a fantastic book and I really enjoyed reading it.
