Dancing the Charleston

Jacqueline Wilson Nick Sharratt

About the book

‘Wild glamour, class conflict, buried secrets and a cameo appearance by Hetty Feather are all delivered with Wilson’s inimitable, intensely readable flair, interspersed with Nick Sharratt’s cheery illustrations’ - The Guardian

A new sparkling and glamorous novel from the beloved, bestselling children’s author, Jacqueline Wilson!

In a little cottage on the edge of the grand Somerset Estate, Mona lives with her aunt - a dressmaker to the lady of the house.

Life on the edge of the Somerset Estate means that Mona knows she will never have a life full of beautiful clothes and riches. But soon, that will all change . . .

When Lady Somerset dies and a new member of the family inherits the house, Mona is propelled into a life of razzle-dazzle parties, new Bohemian friends and wonderful trips to London.

However, even with these changes Mona discovers that she cannot dance away from her past.

A glittery trip back in time, from the author of Hetty Feather and Tracy Beaker!
