For years, Grace has watched the wolves in the woods behind her house. One yellow-eyed wolf – her wolf – is a chilling presence she can't seem to live without. Meanwhile, Sam has lived two lives. In winter, the frozen woods, the protection of the pack, and the silent company of a fearless girl. In summer, a few precious months of being human... until the cold makes him shift back again.
I would suggest this book to kids 12 or over. It made me cry. It made me think and it made me feel.

Harriet Manners knows almost every fact there is. She knows duck-billed platypuses don't have stomachs. She knows that 14 squirrels were once detained as spies. She knows that both chess and Snakes and Ladders were invented in the same country. And for once, Harriet knows exactly how her life should go. She's got it all planned out. Though her friends seem less than happy, Harriet is determined to Make Things Happen! If only everyone else would stick to the script....
I loved this book! The performance was fabulous and I couldn't stop listening! I would recommend this book too girls around 12.
The powerful new novel from the master storyteller - inspired by the true story of one man who might have stopped World War II. It's 1940. The train is under attacks from German fighters. In the darkness, sheltering in a railway tunnel, the stranger in the carriage with Barney and his mother tells them a story to pass the time. And what a story. The story of a young man, a young soldier in the trenches of World War I who, on the spur of the moment, had done what he thought was the right thing.
Reading this book was an amazing experience. I didn't like tend voice of the reader when I started listening but I became used to it and came to enjoy it.
I rated this book so high because it has an amazing story line and it finds a way of making sure you can't stop listening. I would recommend this book to anyone really and I hope whoever does read this book will enjoy it tremendously.

I rated Dear Olly five stars because it really reached inside me and made me feel like I was one of the characters. I would recommend this book to anyone who is between 9 years and 15 years. I hope anyone who listens to this book enjoys it as much as I did.
It's 1943 and Lily Tregenza lives on a farm in the idyllic seaside village of Slapton. Apart from her father being away, and the "townie" evacuees at school, her life is scarcely touched by the war. Until one day, when Lily and her family, along with 3,000 other villagers, are told to move out of their homes: lock, stock, and barrel. Soon, the whole area is out of bounds, as the Allied forces practise their landings for D-day, preparing to invade France. But Tips, Lily's adored cat, has other ideas; barbed wire and keep-out signs mean nothing to her, nor does the danger of guns and bombs. Frantic to find her, Lily makes friends with two young American soldiers.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys either history or adventures. I rated this book quite high because it only took me a day to finish it as I couldn't stop reading! I hope anybody would reads this book enjoys it as Much as I have.

In The Amber Spyglass, the third and final instalment in His Dark Materials...the war between good and evil reaches a shattering conclusion.
The Amber Spyglass is a thrilling story that will find your heart and make you cry.
I enjoyed this so much that I was annoyed and sad at the same time when it finished!
I hope you love it as much as I did.

This is the first book in the Carnegie Medal and Guardian Award-winning trilogy His Dark Materials, from Philip Pullman. Set in a parallel world very similar to our own, Northern Lights tells the compelling story of 12-year-old Lyra's quest to rescue her friend and find her father, aided by her daemon, an armoured bear, and a witch-queen.
I think that the Northern Lights was narrated perfectly and it flew beyond my expectations and I hope that anyone else who reads this book agrees with me.
