Sticking with pigsSticking with pigs, Mary-Anne Scott

13 yr old Wolf feels more like a distant friend rather than a family member when his brother Davey is suddenly diagnosed with Addison’s disease. So when uncle Jem agrees to take him on a hunting trip he’s definitely excited. But when the trip turn out to be more than he bargained for Wolf feels uncertain he’ll make it out alive.

The nature of AshThe nature of Ash, Mandy Hager

This book is about a boy who’s Dad dies and he has to go home from university. I found this book hard to read as it is probably suited for older children. My older sister loved it and she is 12. I think children 12 plus would enjoy this book.

This book is about a teenager called Wolf who has a brother called Davey who becomes sick. His Dad has to look after Davey so Wolf feels forgotten until his uncle decides to take him on a pig hunt. This is no ordinary pig hunt, however. I found this book interesting, especially as it is a NZ one. It is suited for older children,

A tangle of knotsA tangle of knots, Lisa Graff

This is a complicated book as it is told by different characters in it and it is a puzzle. Its about a magical world where everyone has a talent. Cady’s talent is cake baking. Cady is an orphan and goes on a mysterious journey to a mysterious house. The house holds important clues to her past. I really liked this book as it was well written and you wanted to find out what happens in the end.

Kids’ Club Review by Merekara: Small spaces

Small spacesSmall spaces, Katherine Arden

Small Spaces was exciting and thrilling!
Someone called the smiling man who’s magical and evil, turns kids into scarecrows and uses them like puppets. We’re definitely getting the sequel!
