Secrets - an AMAZING book and one of my favourites!
on 28 July 2002
I read this book and immediately I knew that it would have pride of place on my bookshelves.Filled with detail,the superb writing made me feel as if I was actually in the same room as the two main characters, India and Treasure. I could particularly relate to India's frustration at times .
The keeping of diaries filled with secrets and the lives of the two girls truly brings out the outstanding originality of this story. With Treasure's currently happy life with her nan, which is continuously troubled by the prospect that she might have to go and live back with her mum and terrible stepfather and India's constant battle with her mother about her weight, on top of her dad who is apparently too busy to take notice of India anymore, you are slowly drawn into the lives of the girls throughout the book.
I loved this book, and I would seriously recommend it to anyone who enjoys a great book with an original storyline. It keeps my eyes glued to the pages whenever I read it.
