The Ark by Laura Liddell Nolen

The Lovereading4Kids comment

There's a meteor headed for Earth, and there is only one way to survive if Char ever wants to redeem herself. She must use all the tricks of the trade to swindle her way into outer space, where she hopes to reunite with her family, regardless of whether they actually ever want to see her again, or not ....


The Ark by Laura Liddell Nolen

It's the final days of earth, and sixteen-year-old Char is right where she belongs: in prison. With her criminal record, she doesn't qualify for a place on an Ark, one of the five massive bioships designed to protect earth's survivors during the meteor strike that looks set to destroy the planet. Only a select few will be saved - like her mom, dad, and brother - all of whom have long since turned their backs on Char.

The first book in the Ark Trilogy.

At @HHSHaringey we love @lovereading4kids because our pupils can practice reviewing & get free upcoming books before anyone else!

Helen Swinyard – Heartlands High

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

It’s a community united by a passion for books and promoting the best there is in children’s literature.

Sam Bateman and family

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

Judi Davies – Aberdare Girls Sch

Writing reviews help the children with their literacy skills and we always read the books together which gives us good quality family time!

Cat Bisland (on behalf of the Bi

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.
