The Lovereading4Kids comment

Dramatic and emotionally charged, Cathy Cassidy’s stories are also warmhearted and funny. Fourteen year old Mouse has a way of falling into trouble. He doesn’t go looking for it but it seems to find him anyway. When he falls for a cool and confident girl called Cat he little guesses that he’ll not only be in trouble but in danger too. Can Mouse keep his head above water?


Lucky Star by Cathy Cassidy

Mouse is doing his best to stay out of trouble. Cat is doing her best to land herself in it. They've both had it pretty tough so when they meet by chance they thank their lucky stars. Weird and wonderful things happen when they're together - but how long can it last?

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.
