Synopsis

Last Man Standing by Alan Gibbons

The Rough Diamonds are a close knit team. Kev McGovern, their captain, makes sure they work hard and play hard. Right now, John O'Hara feels he's on the verge of losing everything. His family is about to break up. He's dumbstruck when he finds out that his Mum is seeing his teacher, and Dad...well the less said the better. John feels lonely and insecure; none of this is helping his street cred with the lads, and worse still his form on the pitch is really suffering.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

Jessica Cobbin – age 7

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

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.

Georgie Rowe – age 16

Love “Lovereading4kids” as my son gets to hear about & read new books before his mates which keeps him interested in reading=a very happy Mum

We love Lovereading4kids because it promotes reading choices, new authors and a sense of community for children of all ages!

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

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!
