Loved It!!! Thanks Bianca Marais for a wonderful story of lovable characters. Robin and Beauty are in my heart.
The best historical fiction I have read!
I am absessed with Mindy Mcginnis. I want to read every book she has ever written and all the books she loves and recommends! The Female of the Species is a cold splash in our faces of all the double standards we will never be able to eliminate. Present every day in our kids, schools, society, work... I love Alex, Claire (Peekay), Jack, Branley, Park, not, Adam so much. Read the book. It voices so many who are quiet. 10/10
This book is dark. It was a tough read. It is beautifully written. It deals with real issues. Adhd, dyslexia, physical abuse, mental abuse. Why should you read it? Because it is also about, innocense, friend, faith, hope, love, and lastly, it IS as real as you can get, no sugar coating.
Just finished Rabbit Cake by Annie Hartnett. Elvis is a very smart 10 year old girl. She is trying to come to terms with her mothers suicide or death by sleepwalk drowning...need I say more. Elvis loves her dad, sister and makes friends with everyone. She loves animals and never gives up. What a great character! Next "Short for Chameleon" by Vicki Grant, Noelle Bailey tells me its good...
