The Trouble with Perfect
Author: Helena Duggan
This was so so good! I am a absolutely huge fan of A Place Called Perfect, And this book did not disappoint. Another incredible mystery, ending on a huge cliffhanger, I just couldn't get enough of this book. Boy and Violet go on another adventure, possibly even better than the first. The suspense was great, the sense of excitement huge.

A great plot twist and cliffhanger all make this book highly recommendable. What I would say, is that if you are about to buy it without having read the first one, then do consider reading that as well.

Electrigirl and the Invisible Thieves
Author: Jo Cotterill Illustrator: Cathy Brett
I really enjoyed this book, I devoured it in a few days. I did like the plot, and though I felt it was slightly too young for me, I wouldn't say it's a bad book. In fact, it's a great book! As an older reader now, I think some of Jo Cotterills older books, such as Jelly, would be more appropriate for me. However, there is nothing to stop me loving the half book half comic trilogy Electrigirl! Another new set of feelings, an old enemy coming back and some mysterious green slime- these supernatural elements are all woven together to make a great superhero story.

As I mentioned earlier, I am older now than I was when I read the first Electrical book. This one I found slightly faster paced, but that was only because I am older, and prefer more plot-twisty books. I would definitely recommend this book, however I would say the age should be about 9-10 or younger. Anyone older should try one of Jo's other books, such as A Library of Lemons, A Storm of Strawberries or Jelly - aforementioned.

I loved this book completely. I felt it delivered some brutal truths about the world we live in through a beautiful plot about a music-loving girl and football-obsessed boy. They're special friendship teaches the reader so many lessons: you are never alone; though bad things happen, good things will come out of them; and, most importantly, don't stop thinking about tomorrow. Both the children are living through incredible difficulty that lucky people such as ourselves can only imagine. Whether it's fleeing from a war-torn country, or having only one parent, Stevie and Hafiz show us unbearable hardships and wonderful happy endings.
