Hetty Feather is the first in the adventurous series of books. Written like a life story, the brilliant book is based in the late 18000's. It's about a young girl who was born into a founding hospital and then brought up in a borrowed family. Later to be returned, Hetty is torn from her beloved sweetheart 'Jem'. She is a troublemaker and the Matron Bottomly doesn't do small punishments...
This book tells the story of Hetty's life from her point of view, growing up a servant. With the tough world Hetty was brought into, she was prepared for every challenge that was to come. First on her list was to find her mother Ida Battersea, who was working as a servant in Bignor. The book is an exhilerating story, one you won't want to stop reading once begun. With another four books in the series you'll never be short of thrilling tales from the life of Hetty Feather. Jaqueline Wilson, the author, did a brilliant job of looking back to the Victorian era. This book deserves five stars and is one you should be reading!
