An unforgettable story of friendship, self-belief and love. Amber, Maali, Sky and Rose are not like everyone else and they don't want to be. Becoming friends gives them the courage to be themselves.

A inspirational, heart-warming book about four girls trying to find their place in the world. Siobhan Curham celebrates very different but like-minded friends in this captivating novel. Amber craves excitement and adventure. Instead, she's being bullied at school for having two dads, and life at home isn't much better. Inspired by Oscar Wilde, Amber realises that among the millions of people in London, there must be others who feel the same as she does; other dreamers - moonlight dreamers. After chance encounters with Maali, Sky and Rose, Amber soon recruits the three girls to the Moonlight Dreamers. It's high time they started pursuing their dreams, and how better than with the support of friends?


Four very different girls, but all with one thing in common - they are all fed up with having to fit in and be like everyone else.

Amber, Maali, Sky and Rose do not know each other until Amber decides one day to find other people who share her dreams and so the Moonlight Dreamers are born!

This is a book for every girl who has faced pressure to fit in, to blend in to the crowd at school and to stay invisible. I think this is everyone at some stage! It is a beautiful book about friendship, standing up for what you believe in and finding the courage to be yourself and find your own unique place in the world.

I loved this book from the very first page and I’m sure your students will thoroughly enjoy it. A perfect book for girls Year 9 and up who believe in following their dreams.
