Crow Girl

I have about 30 books in my TBR pile. I find that if I review them on my blog then I’m more likely to read them quicker. So I’m using my iphone, to write the post in my email and send it to the special blogger~publish address . Reading and blogging on the go has never been easier! 
Right now I’m after a tennis match and I’m waiting to sub in an hour. The book I’m blogging about is Crow Girl. This is the first time I’ve email a post to publish; so let’s see how it works!

Author: Kate Cann
Publisher: Barrington Stokes
ISBN: 1842993461
Age: YA
Overweight and bullied at school, Lily takes refuge in the woods where she meets the crows. Her friendship with these majestic birds is empowering and, as her confidence returns, they help her take revenge on her tormenters in a spectacular way. 

My Review
This book was written for older kids/teens who are reluctant readers or who may have dyslexia or learning difficulties. The font is perfectly spaced which makes for easy reading and the words are accessible. The plot has conflict, want, and resolution.

The book cover is cool, the story is about a teenage girl with problems at school and the only thing that can really help her are crows.

It’s a simply story but it incorporates the appropriate age group and issues that they can relate to.

Well done Barrington Stokes.

Many thanks to my favourite local library, Clonmel, Tipperary, for always having a varied stock.
