Synopsis

Now by Morris Gleitzman

Reviews

One of the reasons this humane and carefully crafted book is so readable is that the author celebrates ordinariness and childishness even as he chronicles terrible cruelty. But prepare for shock and tears -- Nicolette Jones (on Then, Children's Book of the Week) * Sunday Times * Haunting . . . dangerous and desperate, but also full of courage and hope * Guardian on Once *

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.

Georgie Rowe – age 16

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

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.
