The Lovereading4Kids comment

Interest Age 8-12 Reading Age 8+ Brilliantly observed, this is a thoughtful story about truth and friendship. Tilly’s thrilled by her new friendship with Mia; she is chatty and funny and soon the two of them are Best Friends Forever – Already – even though they are only newly met, as new girls as Beech Cliff School. But when Amber Sweet arrives Tilly wants to be friends with her too. Why is Mia so mean about Amber? And who is telling the truth? Tilly finds she has a lot to learn about people as she sorts out new life in secondary school.

Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers of 8+

Synopsis

Sweetness and Lies by Karen Mccombie

Tilly has just started at her new secondary school and she's the luckiest girl in the world - she's found her new, Best Friend Forever, Mia. But when Amber joins their class a few days later, Mia starts to act a little oddly.

A sweet story about friendship, sparkling with Karen McCombie's trademark wit and wisdom.

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

Lorraine Woods

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

It’s really exciting to read and review new books, thrilling to see my reviews online and I love finding the final published copies on sale.
