The Lovereading4Kids comment

Shortlisted for the Branford Boase Award 2006.

Set in a far off future, Home is a powerful science fiction story which asks readers to take a fresh look at Earth and to consider what belonging somewhere means and why it matters. Sacks’ safe, secure life is turned upside down when her Station is attacked and the only person she has ever known is killed. She has to set off on a journey into the unknown – to earth where Humans don’t belong. There’s no-one to help her and every breath might be toxic and life-threatening. Sack’s story of survival in this richly created, dysptopian futuristic landscape is gripping. (10+)

Synopsis

Home by Nicola Davies

It's 2067 and the world has become virtually uninhabitable with all the pollution and toxins created by mankind. Ruling classes live holed up in the cities and workers live in Stations, safe from the outside world. But one day Station 27 is taken over by rebels. Nero, from the ruling classes, and Sacks, a worker, find themselves thrown together as they're captured by the rebels, their common enemy. As they begin to discover the terrifying truth about their world, the two children get separated and find themselves in great danger. Will they find each other before it is too late?

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

Lorraine Woods

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

Love “Lovereading4kids” as my son gets to hear about & read new books before his mates which keeps him interested in reading=a very happy Mum

It’s really exciting to read and review new books, thrilling to see my reviews online and I love finding the final published copies on sale.
