February 2013 Book of the Month When lonely Nell is sent to stay with her relatives on a farm she takes with her an extra suitcase packed with a secret. Even before she has unpacked it, the suitcase is stolen by the mysterious Angel, a little girl who is also holding a secret close to her heart. Initially wary of each other, the two girls are brought to trust each other by their twinned desire to save one hundred horses. Touched with magic, this is a tender story of friendship and a joint sense of believing.

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

Emily Horncastle – age 11

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.

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

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