Pascal's life is like any other boy's as he worries about his English classes and his football skills - until the day rebels come to his village and everything changes. On the run with friends, Pascal finds himself at the mercy of some tough events but it is not until he ends up working in a cocoa plantation that he realises he must endeavour to find his family and to set himself free from his enslavement. Armed only with his determination and supported by his friend, Kojo, Pascal has a difficult battle ahead of him.

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

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.
