Diva 6: Girls at Sea

Diva 6: Girls at Sea by Sue Lawson (black dog books: an imprint of Walker Books)
PB RRP $7.99
ISBN 9781742031729
Reviewed by Vicki Stanton

Mickey, Skye and Coco head out whale watching for an episode of Girls' Stuff TV. Skye loves whales and is super-excited. But she has a problem - she gets seasick and has left her ginger tablets at home. As in previous books, Mickey is always thoughtful and helps her friend solve her problem and the girls head out to sea. Coco's snobbery sees her come unstuck and patience with her antics is running thin with all.

Mickey Farrell and the Diva series is welcome relief from the deluge of fairy books for girls of this age and reading level. Mickey sings and dances and loves cool clothes. She is also smart and sassy and committed to her friends. Girls will be sure to lap up this instalment and be wanting more.
