This is a brilliant book. The farm is described beautifully, even the mucky bits, so you feel that you know your way around it and love it as much as Hannah.

Synopsis

Since the death of her mother, Hannah's family life has been a bit chaotic. Her father works all day on their dilapidated farm, and the four children are pretty much left to themselves. One day, Hannah finds a ramshackle old hen house in a forgotten corner of the farm and decides to turn it into a secret theatre. But then the farm is threatened with demolition. Hannah hatches a bold plan to save it. Who can she trust? And what will happen when her dad finds out?

Given that this is a story about theatre, it is gratifying that Peters is so skilled at sketching bold and vivid characters and putting good dialogue in their mouths.
