Book Description

26 April 2013
I can feel the anger bubbling up inside me. 'Grace, we've got a brand new life now. We can be anyone we want.' 'So what happens when your new friends find out you've just spun them a story?' 'They won't. I'm not going to let anyone spoil things. Never again.' Ellie and Grace have left their old life behind. The future seems better, brighter, more exciting. But as their past threatens to catch up with them, how long can silence and lies keep their dark secret safe?

Review

'I loved The Summer of Telling Tales - it's truly gripping and you care desperately about both sisters.' --Jacqueline Wilson

'I thoroughly enjoyed this perceptive, pacy story ... With strong, engaging characters and a vivid school setting, this novel combines some very dramatic moments with everyday friendship and romance.' --Miriam Halahmy

'Fans of Cathy Cassidy will love this absorbing tale of families and loyalty.' --The Bookseller

5.0 out of 5 stars Another fabulous story from Laura Summers 8 July 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Laura Summers writes stories about real people; who we have all met in our lives sometime, somewhere and by the end of the book we know them much better. She alternates the different voices of Grace and Ellie, the sisters in the story, in each chapter and we hear the story from their viewpoints and understand it through their feelings. This story has something for everyone; its about families, struggles, bravery and happiness. It is about relationships, ordinary everyday situations, at school and at home and, people growing in confidence... truly inspiring. Sometimes its sad or scary, and sometimes also very funny. Her description of places make them feel familiar so we are part of the girls story. Her stories are exciting, and heartwarming and keep the reader engrossed til the end, when you never want them to finish. This is no exception and we think many readers would like to read a sequel to this one in particular. The Summer of telling tales is a fantastic summer read, foranyone nine to ninety, along with Desperate Measures and Heartbeat away.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy light reading 25 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Little bit predictable but otherwise a good story exploring a family with isssues of domestic violence. The characters are somewhat cliched but the story line does maintain your interest.
