No Stone Unturned by Helen Watts

Kelly, a Traveller girl, is isolated and unhappy at her new school. Until the hot summer day when she meets Ben. Ben offers to help Kelly with her history project.

Soon the mystery of the past is spilling into the present - and into Kelly's own life. Kelly must bring the long-buried truth to light. And she will leave no stone unturned...A tense, moving mystery with brilliant historical detail of Victorian life, by the author of the Carnegie-nominated One Day In Oradour.

Reviews

...the strands interweave perfectly to produce an engrossing read which moves seamlessly between past and present...The reader will warm to Kelly and the book handles the issue of bullying and being different with great understanding. -- Sarah Brew www.parentsintouch.co.uk ...an interesting and fabulously well-researched historical mystery. I loved this story. What is so great...is that the whole story was conceived from local historical events. -- Jill Murphy www.thebookbag.co.uk The uncovering of domestic heroism and the little tragedies that contributed to the delivery of a remote public building is surprisingly moving. -- Charlie Farrow Historical Novel Society

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

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!
