The physical book has a really nice feel to it and the pages are easy to flip. The front cover has a lot of textures which I really love, Vita makes me happy with the way she magpies from traditional stories and makes them her own. I would recommend this book to adventurous people who want to read about active. independent princesses.

Splash

Splash, Charli Howard

Splash is a touching story about a young girl, Molly, whose mum abandoned her as a toddler with her Nan and Granddad. Molly is an amazingly strong swimmer, but is embarrassed to wear a swimming costume, after her supposed best friend, Chloe, made fun of her in front of the entire gang of horrid boys in the year above at her school. After secretly joining the before-school swimming club, Molly becomes close friends with a boy in the club with her. He is scraggy, dirty, and always wears clothes that are too big for him. But Molly might have to choose between him and her other friends - and there are other surprises in wait for Molly. I really enjoyed this book, as it kept surprises packed up ready for you as you read, all the way through. I would recommend Splash to any interested reader, and would rate it five stars.

The Embassy of the Dead

The Embassy of the Dead, Will Mabbitt
Lola
10


An innocent, clueless boy is accidentally given a severed finger when he is mistaken for a phantom named Goodmourning. This leads him to a trophy (I meant to say trophy!) of trouble and he almost gets killed 4 times! This book makes ghosts more familiar to people. I recommend this book to people who are scared of phantoms.

Stunt double

****

Stunt double, Tamsin Cooke
Max B
10


I loved the amount of adventure they put into this book while being balance with a bit of comedy and mystery, making me read on to see how the main character would escape and fix the new problem that happens on set. Meanwhile a dark mystery is being discovered as the director may not be what she seems. The main character is called Finn who has become a stunt double after his old best friend - and now rival, Blake - kicked him out of his movie, so Novak the director makes him a stunt double while a new actor called Mawi takes another actor's spot and blows everyone away! This book was a real joy to read and I recommend it from 9-14!
