I received this book a while ago and felt like I was in need of a quick short read recently. This book seemed like a great choice because it was under/ around three hundred pages. I am also really intrigued by the secret that our main character has to keep. Overall, this book wasn’t for me. Unfortunately, the writing and plot failed to capture me. The beginning started off really well, it pulled the reader in by creating a mystery as to where our main character and her father were off to in such a rush. However, despite the enticing start, I struggled to get into the story, and I felt as if I didn’t connect with the story. I strongly believe that this book will be perfect for young readers who want a book that I believe will be thrilling. I think that a lot of younger readers might be able to connect more with our main character. Thank you to Pan Macmillan South Africa for providing me with a copy of this book.
Yours in Reading,
