Product Description

Review

Praise for ‘Invisible Girl’:
“Kate Maryon’s characters stay with you long after the book is finished.” Jenny Valentine

Praise for ‘Shine’:
“[Kate Maryon] understands a child's deepest feelings, including the negative ones, and she allows Tiff to run through the gamut of them as she slowly works her way through feelings of abandonment, loneliness, fear and anger, until eventually happiness and love can resurface. Readers will recognise all her thoughts. It's an uplifting story which begins with a huge disaster and ends with a new start for everyone. It will reassure and comfort its readers and it exactly inhabits their emotional landscape… I think tween girls are going to love it.” [Four stars] TheBookBag.co.uk

5.0 out of 5 stars A delightful book 7 Mar 2010
Format:Paperback
This book is aimed at girls 9 years+ As an adult I read it in a day as I didn't want to put it down. It is a lovely story beautifully told from the eyes of a little girl who's life seemingly falls apart in just one day.

You very quickly fall in love with Tiffany and are there with her sharing her worries and joys all the way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful uplifting story for girls 9 Mar 2010
Format:Paperback
Fantastic insightful and fun book for girls in the 9-12 age range. The story will have readers carried along, I couldn't get my 10 yr old's nose out of it. Wonderful characters, believable storyline, and beautifully written for this age group. You will laugh, cry and love the heroine Tiffany........there are even ponies!! Well done Kate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shine on! 26 April 2010
Format:Paperback
A well written and moving account of Tiff's 'true to life' story for both adult's and children. I like this book because it shares Tiff's inner feelings not just her thoughts. Shine has a truly unique perspective of what life is like for many children brought or bought up in difficult circumstances. Kate Maryon believes in finding solutions to mend and repair every situation. Surely a book to help adults understand a child's sensitivities. I'm looking forward to the next one!

By Sunraye
Format:Paperback
Coming from a family of read-aholics, my youngest daughter (now 12)always struggles to finish even an easy book. But with Shine,she loved it, and finished it in a few days. Major achievement which she is delighted with. She said it was so interesting she didn't want to put it down. She can wait for the next book by Kate Maryon to be published. Thanks Kate! Please hurry with the next one.

5.0 out of 5 stars A captivating read! 17 Mar 2010
Format:Paperback
I was first alerted to this book at the book-forum website, and I'm glad I was as my 13 year old daughter - who I usually struggle to get to read ANYTHING, let alone a whole book - really enjoyed it!

As she was so taken by it I had a read and, I think it's written in a warm, friendly style, but conveys the unhappiness felt by Tiff, the lead character, very well. Ends in a delightful way too!

5.0 out of 5 stars jacqueline wilson-esque 7 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
My 9 year old daughter thoroughly enjoyed this book. Compared it to a Jacqueline Wilson, whose books she is obsessed with. I got huge brownie points for finding her a new author to follow.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mixed feelings 21 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
At first, I didn't really like Tiffany, especially when she goes to the family and every where else because I found her small minded but all in all I loved the book and I would recommend it to children 8-11
