by Candace Bushnell
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant book, 15 Aug 2008
This review is from: Lipstick Jungle (Paperback)
As a fan of SATC, I thought I'd read another Candace Bushnell book and was not disappointed. I really enjoyed this book, and finished it in a few days (it normally takes me a few weeks to read a book). Buy it!

2.0 out of 5 stars The Wind Singer, 1 April 2006
I didn't enjoy this book at all - I found it confusing and really boring throughout. There are so many better books to be read! A lot of people say that these books are written similarly to Harry Potter, but that's wrong - Harry Potter is captivating, hilarious and makes you feel as if you're really there in the book, but this feels pretty much a chore to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Book Ever!!!, 8 Jun 2005
This review is from: Roxy's Baby (Paperback)
This book was even better then Catherine Macphail's other books - it was realistically written, and was thrilling and gripping, too. When fourteen year old Roxy discovers she is pregnant, she can't bring herself to tell her mum, stepdad and sister so she runs away to London. While there, she becomes involved with Mr. and Mrs. Dyce, a loving friendly couple who own a big house in the country and want to help girls like Roxy. It sounds too good to be true...and it is, because Mr. and Mrs. Dyce are evil inside...pure evil. A GREAT READ!

4.0 out of 5 stars Bicycle Madness Book Review, 3 Oct 2004
This review is from: Bicycle Madness (Hardcover)
A lovely book about the Suffragettes, set in America at the time of the Depression. Young Lily has had enough of her stupid big brother and his friends leaving her out just because she's a girl. But soon, Frances Willard moves next door to Lily. This woman beleives in Votes for Women! And, she has a bicycle! As it was so odd for women to have bicycles in that time, Lily is astonished, and admires Frances.
A lovely book for people aged 10 and up.


Petals in the Ashes
Petals in the Ashes
by Mary Hooper
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Petals in the Ashes Book Review, 3 Oct 2004
This review is from: Petals in the Ashes (Paperback)
Petals in the ashes is the sequel to At the Sign of the Sugared Plum. Hannah, a young girl, returns to London to see it blooming again, after it was hit by the Plague. However, it is 1666 and the tragedy of the 'Great Fire of London' is about to occur...
I absolutely adored this book - I think most people would enjoy it, particularly girls aged 10-15.

5.0 out of 5 stars Petals in the Ashes Book Review, 1 Oct 2004
This review is from: Petals in the Ashes (Paperback)
This book is the sequel to At the Sign of the Sugared Plum. It's set in 17th Century London, and just after the bubonic Plague swept London. In this book, Hannah, a young girl, is caught in the great fire in 1666. It is a lovely book, and the decriptions are brilliant - how London bloomed again after the Plague. It is written in first person, and I think most people would enjoy this book - particularly girls aged between 10 and 15. Please read this fabulously written book!
