The Lovereading4Kids comment

Emma Haughton’s debut won her comparisons with Sophie McKenzie – high praise indeed. Her new book, Better Left Buried, confirms her reputation for taut, well-plotted psychological thrillers. Sarah’s brother has died, which is terrible enough, but then Sarah realises she is being followed – could her brother have got his family involved in some very nasty business? Working out what has happened will take Sarah to Sweden, and into very real danger. The tension mounts chapter by chapter, and leads to a nail-biting climax. Sarah is a sympathetic central character, which makes the menacing atmosphere around her all the more scary. A book to send shivers down the spine. ~ Andrea Reece

A Piece of Passion from Sarah Stewart, Usborne Publishing Despite this being only her second novel, to me, Emma Haughton is a master thriller writer. The tension in this book builds almost unbearably, layer upon layer, to an explosive action-packed climax, and the writing is exquisite – certain passages still give me shivers no matter how many times I read them! Culminating in an incredible atmospheric road-trip to Sweden, it echoes the best Scandi crime novels. But best of all, it has the ultimate bad-boy character in Jack. Whose side is he on? Will we ever know for sure? I couldn’t help falling for him either way!

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.

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

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
