This is for the adventurous and daring readers but expect emotion
Review of First Love - James Patterson, Emily Raymond by cariad54

Advantages: Adventure and rebellious road trip with emotions

This story is about a young girl, Axi Moore, and she says it like it is. She's the narrator and takes the reader on her road trip. Not just any typical teenage road trip, but the road trip of her life (which technically stars with a road trip). I thorough ... Read review

Catherine Chanter: Well Well Well....
Review of The Well - Catherine Chanter by cr01

Advantages: Umm, nicely written
Disadvantages: A mish mash of a plot

Catherine Chanter’s The Well is nominally at least, the type of book that I might enjoy. It’s a tale of the near future where it’s a very familiar world, but there’s a twist. In this case, the UK is going through a prolonged and severe drought, and Chante ... Read review
