    It sounded really good. That book is the only book I haven’t read in the series of Hetty Feather. It is really engaging and I really want to know what happens. If anybody has read all the Hetty Feather I recommend reading Diamond as Hetty Feather comes in to it!

    Sapphire Battersea is an amazing book just like Hetty Feather! It is definitely worth reading if you haven’t already because it’s very well written, keeps you hooked, uses lots of interesting vocabulary and much more!
