A disturbing tale of two psychopathic pre-teens. Somewhat along the lines of the ‘Ripley’ series. Aimed at YA, well-written but creepily dangerous. ‘What do two monsters do when they pass each other? Smile!’




The walls around us – By Nova Ren Suma

This is a  dark tale of innocence, jealousy, darkness, obsession, madness.   It’s told from the perspective of two girls: Amber and Violet, but their stories are linked by Orianna, a ballet dancer convicted to Aurora Hills juvenile Detention centre

Throughout the book, you have to question  what is true and what is not. Sometimes things got a little creepy and almost supernatural.   In the end, you finish this book and still wonder what on earth was that really about a supernatural, nasty tales of love and jealousy and revenge!

A truly weird read, for those who enjoy reads with a nasty twist.5


All rise for the honorable Perry T. Cook – By Leslie Connor

Perry’s mother is in a minimum security prison and so is he.  For some unexplainable reason nobody has made a fuss and Warden Daugherty has allowed him to remain with his mother.  The prison is the only home that Perry has known and the inmates are his family. He goes to school every day and has a best friend Zoey.

Everything goes bad when someone important gets to know of Perry living in the prison and is determined to  get him out and into a normal family environment.

When Perry moves to the “outside” world, he feels trapped. Desperate to be reunited with his mom, Perry goes on a quest for answers about her past crime. As he gets closer to the truth, he will discover that love makes people resilient no matter where they come from . . . but can he find a way to tell everyone what home truly means?

This is a good read about family and what it means to different people.
