Product description

Harriet must choose between her friend Lalla and her new-found love of ice-skating…

“If you pass your inter-silver, I’ll tell Aunt Claudia that I don’t want to work with you any more.”

Harriet is told that she must take up ice-skating in order to improve her health. She isn’t much good at it, until she meets Lalla Moore, a young skating star. Now Harriet is getting better and better on the ice, and Lalla doesn’t like it. Does Harriet want to save their friendship more than she wants to skate?

    I LOVE this book. I adore Harriet and I really love this book and the other books by the same author (eg. Ballet Shoes). Brilliant plot, great characters and themes of friendship and jealousy make it fascinating.

    This book is one of my top five favourites. It is hard to understand at first but if you carry on it gets even more interesting. It is wonderfully written by a lady called Noel Streatfeild. This book is a classic and is lots of people’s favourites. I recommend this book to people who are interested in ice skating and real life novels. People who are 8+ will find this book incredble,I thought it was terrific.

    I great story about skating and friendship that I can relate to. My favourite character was Lalla, she was sometimes moody but quirky and fun when she was with Harriet. Noel Streatfeild is a brilliant author to come up with such a brill book!
