Is it Just Me? by Miranda Hart
Is it Just Me? by Miranda Hart
5.0 out of 5 stars Sheer Joy, 18 April 2013
I loved this. Laughed till I cried at several of her breath-takingly awful embarrassing moments.

Totally engaging. Life-affirming. Great fun.

You do actually feel a bit like you could be her best friend by the end of the book.

(Fingers crossed)
A Shirtful of Frogs - a ww2 timeslip novel by Shalini Boland

After a charming beginning, this book surprised me by turning into a real page-turner. My heart was pounding as I worried about what might become of the hero, Jimmy, as his friend Nathan tries desperately to help him - from a different time in history. It gave me an insight into what it was like to be an evacuated kid during WW2 - and it turns out the countryside was not the safest place to be, even without London's bombs.

A wonderful study in empathy, I think boys in particular would really get a lot out of this book, and it's perfect for anyone studying WW2.

Highly recommend.
