A Bird in the Hand by Anne Rooney

Immy is all dressed up to go into town with her friends and to accidentally-on-purpose bump into Alastair! On the way, she discovers an injured bird. She can't just leave it, but she doesn't want to miss Alastair, either! Then Adam Green, the scruffy Goth, comes along...Shots from the Heart is a fantastic collection of four romance short stories, each about 1500 words long. Straight from cupid's arrow, this series provides a short, sparkly shot of romance for readers fed up with vampires, magic and sci-fi!

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

Emily Horncastle – age 11

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!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

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.

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.
