Synopsis

Secrets by T.A. Blezard

Over the past year Briony, a fit, bright girl with a passion for stargazing, has become moody and introverted and her friends can't figure out why. They know nothing of Briony's secret life at home, where her apparently respectable stepfather, Colin, is increasingly violent towards her mother, and on occasion, towards her. When Briony tries to help her mother she only seems to make things worse, so she keeps quiet and pretends that nothing is wrong, just like everyone else in the family. But things are getting worse and Briony is scared that one day, Colin will go too far. Briony knows she can't runaway and give up on her mother, but how can she convince her to leave? And what will be the consequence of the scenes she has witnessed for her own budding relationship with lan, who had seemed so different?

I love Lovereading4kids because I get an opportunity to put my opinion forward and to try new books

Elosie Clarkson – age 11

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

Erica Motoc, age 7

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

Daisy Pennock – age 15

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

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

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

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.

Angela East

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.

Katie Lonsdale

It’s a community united by a passion for books and promoting the best there is in children’s literature.
