    Review From: Sligo

    I loved this book. It was brilliant, filled with mystery. It was about a girl named Nancy who got an old, antique desk. Then she wanted to paint it. When she was painting it she found a silver key. Suddenly Nancy spotted a keyhole. She tried it in the keyhole. It did not fit. Find out what the key is for by reading the book.

  • Book Title:   Tangled Secrets

    Book Author:   Anne Marie Conway

    Age Group For This Book: 10 - 12

    Review From: Cork

    Captivating yet predictable.
    I enjoyed ‘Tangled Secrets’ because there was a lot of personal content. About coping with death. I feel I can put myself in Maddie’s shoes. It was predictable because of how Kieran Black’s character was set to be the “bad boy” in the class and how he does show emotion during the story.
    I recommend this book to anyone who is/was dealing with a similar situation to Maddie.
    I love this book sooooooooooooooo much.

    Review From: Cork

    Tall story is an amazing story taken from the point of view of both Bernardo and Andy. At the start, it is quite confusing but once you get to the fourth or fifth chapter, you will get engrossed in it.
