Product description

Carmen might look little, but she’s got a BIG voice! It’s her dream to be a pop star – well, a rock star actually. Her mum is always saying that she’s star crazy, and it’s true!! Now it’s the school talent contest, the moment Carmen has dreamed of. She’s even written a special song for it. It should be Carmen’s BIG chance – but there’s a BIG problem. The other day, the meanest girl in the universe called her a fat freak, and Carmen stormed out of school. And now she just doesn’t know how to go back…
