LoveReading View on Midnight Pirates

Ally Kennen is an exceptional story teller with a rare gift for creating loveable and convincing characters who leap off the page. When their parents decide to sell their beloved home, the Dodo Hotel, and pack the children off the boarding school,  Miranda, Cal and Jackie take matters into their own hands. Can three children under 16 keep up the pretence of being in charge of the run down hotel, deal with a mysterious and sinister guest and hide a valuable jet-ski which washes ashore mysteriously in a giant crate? It’s a lot to juggle especially as they also have to keep their parents off the scent with carefully worded, but not actually deceitful, emails. A modern day adventure that crackles with life and humour.

Ally has worked as a classroom assistant, nursery nurse, museum guard and archaeologist. She is also a professional singer.
