Hi and welcome to ciao. I enjoyed these books myself, despite being well past the target age range. If you can edit in more detail, tell us what the book is about without spoilers, and a bit more about why you liked it, I would be happy to pop back with qood rate. Don't want to rate now as afew neg rates can be informative. Too many can be discouraging. Don't worry though, most of us did start out just as you have and worked our way up. by Marge3781
While I think that some personal input is useful in a review, you need to add some detail about the item and your opinions as well, rather than just the events that led to the purchase of said item by euphie
