Threads by Sophia Bennett – Times Childrens’ Fiction Winner

Fashion fairy tales really can happen…….

Praised for her creation of a vibrant, funny, totally absorbing and thought provoking novel for fashion-conscious girls, Sophia Bennett’s first novel Threads is set to take the world by storm!

Threads deals with modern friendships and contemporary world issues in an honest and inspirational way and Sophia Bennett’s style has already totally won literary folk over. “It’s fashion with compassion,” says publisher Barry Cunningham.

Nonie, Edie and Jenny are best friends. Nonie’s passion is fashion. Humanitarian Edie wants to save the world. And budding actress Jenny has just landed a small part in a Hollywood blockbuster. But when these three friends meet a young African refugee girl called Crow, sketching a dress at the Victoria and Albert Museum, they get the chance to pool their talents and do something truly wonderful.

Sophia Bennett has always wanted to write books – and as a child, adored the stories of Noel Streatfeild. ‘Every three years or so I become a penniless writer and hope for the best,’ she says. She’s mad about the fashion world and has written several newspaper articles.
