As a child, Carrie Hope Fletcher starred in stage shows such as Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Les Misérables and Mary Poppins - and these experiences inspired her first book for young readers, Into the Spotlight. Clearly, Fletcher has coped well with fame and found different ways to get on with her life. But is she an exception? There are many examples of child stars who really struggled to adapt back to life away from the spotlight so is it really worth the risk?

This resource pack includes an article from The Week Junior newspaper about Carrie Hope Fletcher and her new book, plus an activities sheet to get children thinking, talking and writing more deeply about the issues it raises.
