I’ve got a girl in the war

by Marieke Nijkamp  “The objection to fairy stories is that they tell children there are dragons. But children have always known there are dragons.

Review: Pantomime by Laura Lam

by Georgie Penney Compared to my usual reading choices, this was the furthest out of my comfort zone that I’ve read in a long time, and I’m so glad that I decided to give it a go.
