The Shuttered Room by Christine Purkis

Life is sweet for seventeen-year-old Alison. A long, hot summer nannying in the South of France is bound to brush-up her French, top-up her tan and - who knows? - maybe even pep-up her love life too! But when Alison arrives in the sleepy village of St Secrets her dreams come crashing down around her...it's just so dull! And then she discovers the secret diary, and Alison finds herself swept away with its emotional, passionate and intriguing revelations...

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!

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

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

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