Laugh your head off again.

I really enjoyed the book, Alice Miranda at sea. The Alice Miranda series are all mystery but this is one of my favourite books ever. I have read it about 10 times and my brother is reading it at this very moment. Alice – Miranda is off at sea at her aunt Charlotte’s and soon to be Uncle Lawrence’s wedding. This was supposed to be a nice relaxing holiday but Alice Miranda seems to take mysteries wherever she goes, this mystery is different. It puts the lives of all the kids in danger, will the Alice Miranda series end when she discovers the culprits of a terrible robbery and the point a gun at her head? will a girl of only 7 years of age be able to survive injuries and robbers and be able to still enjoy the wedding? I would recommend this book to 9+ girls of course boys can read it too but I think this is a bit more of a girly book. I rate this book 10/10. You may find it a bit hard to get into but stick with it because before you know it you will not be able to put it down.

Dark roots – Cate Kennedy

A collection of prize-winning stories by Cate Kennedy which delivers a mesmerizing story collection that travels to the deepest depths of the human psyche. In these sublimely sophisticated and compulsively readable tales, Kennedy opens up worlds of finely observed detail to explore the collision between simmering inner lives and the cold outside world. Her stories are populated by people on the brink: a woman floundering with her own loss and emotional immobility as her lover lies in a coma; a neglected wife who cannot convince her husband of the truth about his two shamelessly libidinous friends; or a married woman realizes that her too-tight wedding ring isn’t the only thing that’s stuck in her relationship.
