Synopsis

Double or Quits Rachel Riley's Year of (almost) Taking Control by Joanna Nadin

All signs point to James being right. Davey is not Heathcliff. He is moron. Rachel Riley is taking control of her life and seizing the day! Can she be open-minded (and open-mouthed) and stay focused on her goal? Find out in this fantastic double edition featuring Back to Life and The Facts of Life. The stakes are getting higher - now it's double or quits time for Rachel! As predicted, James has been sent to his room to a) change and b) reflect on use of the word ho when referring to Mum, or indeed any woman.

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

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!

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

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.

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.
