The Falling in Love Montage

As we discover more about Ruby and Saorise’s pasts we realise this isn’t a simple rom-com.

However… if you love your science, with lots of gory facts (did you know that your skin weighs more than a bowling ball?!), this is for you! For non-fiction, this is a real page-turner.

I’d recommend this book if you like silly stories and aren’t squeamish!"

Mystery of the Night Watchers

A.M. Howell

7,99 € 7,43 €

When there is a disaster the factory rings the old WW2 siren. In my opinion I think it is in the style of a diary. I recommend this book to kids aged 7-9 who like diary type books."
