Linda Newbery recommends
Saving Rafael (2009)
Leslie Wilson
"I have finished SAVING RAFAEL, and am very impressed. It's completely engrossing. I especially liked the bravery of Jenny and her mother, and the power of Jenny's feelings for Raf. I'm sure it will get great reviews when it comes out, and it should be on shortlists."
A Library of Lemons (2016)
Jo Cotterill
"A story of great warmth and emotional wisdom."
Mr Peacock's Possessions (2018)
Lydia Syson
"Dazzling . . . A vividly realised, compelling novel."
