This week, I’m celebrating …
Favourite Sentence from Page 11:
I felt light-headed too, as if everything was unreal – like I was watching myself in a film.
This book in three words:
MYSTERY, FRIENDSHIP, DANGER
I’ve really been enjoying reading middle-grade historical fiction, and this one of my absolute favourites – ever! It is a gripping historical mystery set during the Second World War, and one which I read in one sitting as I just couldn’t put it down!
This is historical fiction at its pinnacle. It is a story of mystery and revelation, of loss and hope, of togetherness and separation, of prejudice and enlightenment. It is a story of ordinary people determined to offer help to those in great need … what a powerful message!
You can read more about this incredible story in my review: Letters from the Lighthouse
I’d love if anyone who wants to give this meme a go would comment in the comments box and include a link to your post so I can visit, comment and find some great middle-grade recommendations. If you do create a post and are on Twitter, and would like to share your post, please use the hashtag #MGTakesOnThursday so I can find it, read it and share it!
