Synopsis

I am a Tree by Kaye Umansky

Tim is an ace actor and keen member of the school drama club. So of course he expects to be the star of the end of year school play. But to his horror he finds he's been cast as a tree. And not just that - his only lines are in verse. Is there anything he can do to save his reputation? A brilliantly funny, hugely readable story, about how to make the most of a supporting role.

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.

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

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

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
