Reviews

Liz Rettig's writing flows so easily and is full of Scottish wit and wisdom . . . Teenage girls should have no problem relating to Kelly Ann's madcap antics and friendship/boyfriend troubles, and might even pick up some tips from her * Wondrous Reads * Proves that although life can take away dreams in one breath, it can grant a different path to dreams in another. I laughed a lot -- Nayuleska * Nayu's Reading Corner * A breezy story filled with summer fun. I loved it! * Chicklish * There were really no faults with this . . . Still, if you are looking for a flighty, summer read full of Kelly Ann's disastrous (but incredibly funny) adventures, pick this up! * Booked Up! *

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

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’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.

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
