    Rating: ★★★★★★★★★☆
    Reviewed by: JUDITH (S), MAUNGARAKI, LOWER HUTT, 13 Feb 2020
    A classic road-trip story in which a young woman running away from home instead finds herself on a rollercoaster adventure with an unexpected companion. Fun and engaging while still maintaining a strong storyline, with a great range of characters.

  • 2.  CoverThe novice
    Rating: ★★★★★★★★★★
    Reviewed by: JUDITH (S), MAUNGARAKI, LOWER HUTT, 27 Jan 2020
    This fabulous story of magic and demon-summoning contains elements reminiscent of Harry Potter, with its school for wizardry, and of Pokemon's theme of capturing and battling magical beasts. Fortunately, just the first in a series!

    Reviewed by: JUDITH (S), MAUNGARAKI, LOWER HUTT, 27 Jan 2020

  • 6.  CoverThe forgetting spell : a Wishing Day novel
    Rating: ★★★★★★★★☆☆
    Reviewed by: JUDITH (S), MAUNGARAKI, LOWER HUTT, 27 Jan 2020
    A sequel to Wishing Day in which the second Blok sister's Wishing Day approaches and more of the mystery surrounding various characters is revealed. At times 13-year-old Darya can be irritatingly self-centred, but this just makes her character seem more realistic.

  • 7.  CoverNowhere on Earth
    Rating: ★★★★★★★★★☆
    Reviewed by: JUDITH (S), MAUNGARAKI, LOWER HUTT, 27 Jan 2020
    A teen girl and her brother are on the run following a plane crash, but why are the men following them so determined to catch them? Exciting and thought-provoking.

    Rating: ★★★★★★★★★★
    Reviewed by: JUDITH (S), MAUNGARAKI, LOWER HUTT, 16 Jan 2020
    Another fabulous ghost-hunting adventure set in Melbourne. Great characters, lots of action, and some truly evil bad guys...

  • 9.  CoverSecondborn
    Rating: ★★★★★★★★★☆
    Reviewed by: JUDITH (S), MAUNGARAKI, LOWER HUTT, 16 Jan 2020
    Dystopian fantasy in which being the eldest child is everything, and secondborns are seen as either a spare, or a threat. Action-packed, with plenty of plotting and treachery, and a bit of romance. Characters are varied and believable, particularly the chilling Census Agent Crow!

  • 10.  CoverExit, pursued by a bear
    Rating: ★★★★★★★★★☆
    Reviewed by: JUDITH (S), MAUNGARAKI, LOWER HUTT, 16 Jan 2020
    Following a traumatic event, Hermione is determined to move on. A very readable story with a gutsy female lead and strong relationships.
