      Fab book for young girls

      The cover of this book is a hint of what's inside. Girly yellows and pinks, flowers, hearts and shiny metallic goodness all signal that this will be a lovely book for young girls, and it is.

      The main character is Laura, and she is really easy for any young girl (or older girl!) to identify with. The story is told from a first person point of view so we know all of Laura's thoughts. She is a sweet but fiesty girl who has all the same emotions and problems that most girls her age do - friends, wanting to do things she's not allowed to, after school clubs, family problems, etc.

      She also has a bigger problem - she has found her mother's diary and has good reason to suspect that her mum is hiding a dark secret. Her attitude to it all is completely understandable and I have rarely read a book where a character is so realistically and sympathetically drawn.

      The style of writing is funny, easy to read, and keeps the story moving quickly. I couldn't put it down and read it in just two sessions. This is a fantastic book that I'd recommend for girls over the age of 7 or 8, and which I will read again.

      This book has an RRP of £5.99 but can be bought on Amazon.co.uk for £3.89 at the moment.
