This is a weekly meme started by @marysimms72 on her brilliant Book Craic blog.
To take part, the steps to follow are:
Post a picture of a front cover of a middle-grade book which you have read and would recommend to others with details of the author, illustrator and publisher.
Open the book to page 11 and share your favourite sentence.
Write three words to describe the book.
Either share why you would recommend this book, or link to your review.
Author: Helen Castles
Illustrator: Beatriz Castro
Publisher: New Frontier Publishing UK
Favourite sentence from page 11: “I whipped out my phone (that Dad said I’m only supposed to use in emergencies) and googled ‘antigen’.
Three words: Detective – Editor – Mystery
This is a perfect introduction to mystery stories for lower KS2 readers with a feisty lead female protagonist and unusually, manages to combine a technology-driven modern day plot with a nostalgic, small-town feel. My original review, which includes an interview with the author Helen Castles, can be read here.
A second book in the series should appear in October, release has been delayed for obvious reasons. I cannot wait to read it!
