Finding A Voice

Finding A Voice

Kim Hood

This is a beautiful and moving story about the friendship between a thirteen-year-old girl who acts as an unofficial carer to her mother, and a fifteen-year-old young man with cerebral palsy who most other people assume is unable to understand what is happening around him. It was short-listed for the Bookseller YA Book Award 2015. It is YA, but those As who are not quite so Y will enjoy it, too.

Poison Bay

By Belinda Pollard

This is a gripping story with plenty of mystery and twists. It is a story about greed and revenge and how they can destroy lives. It is about friendship and teamwork and parents’ love for their children. It is a story about survival of the elements, mistrust and faith. The writing is wonderful - it is a great read. Recommended.
