Moonflight (2023)
Gill Lewis
"An amazing adventure story . . . Great characters, and real heart. So vividly, imaginatively, beautifully written."
thumb
The Supreme Lie (2021)
Geraldine McCaughrean
"Extraordinary, rich and wonderful!"
thumb
The Valley of Lost Secrets (2021)
Lesley Parr
"The Valley of Lost Secrets vividly evokes the uncomfortable reality of being an evacuee in a new place very different from home, as experienced by 12- year-old Jimmy. This warm, sensitive story celebrates the Welsh community at its heart, but also shows the complexities of living in a small mining town where everyone knows everyone else. I particularly loved the way Lesley describes the landscape and its people. The story moves along at a compelling pace, the historical background is lightly touched in, the characters are memorable. And the ending is truly satisfying."
