Minivers Forever by Natalie Jane Prior

Puffin Books, 2011. ISBN 978 0 143303671.
Minivers Forever is the 4th book in the series and the story begins with some background information on the miniature heroine - Emily and Rosamund Miniver. This explanation will give the reader some insight into who the characters are but I would recommend readers start with book 1 - this is one series where you do need to understand what has happened in previous books so as they are referred to.
Minivers Forever is a longer novel so is recommended for girls aged 10+ who are confident readers. The story is set in the fictitious world of Artemisia. Emily and Rosamund are trying to make sure the right person becomes queen and they get back their reputation, career and lifestyle stolen from them. Along the way they have to deal with a rival in their music world and Titus, the new prime minister whose nasty surprises could ruin everything for them.
