Kids’ Club Review by Josie: The clue in the diary

The clue in the diaryThe clue in the diary, by Carolyn Keene

This book was a great but easy read, the fire in the start of the book made the mystery start from the very first page! Honey sounded very cute, and I really felt sorry for mr Swenson when he was arrested! Ned Nickerson was a great addition to the characters as well!

The secret of the old clockThe secret of the old clock, by Carolyn Keene

This book was a quick but good read, it was nice to see Nancy meeting new people and helping them in every way that she could. The range in characters was amazing, from little Judy, to Grace and Allison Hoover, all the way to Abby Rowen. This was a great read and I can’t wait to read more Nancy Drew!

This is the second book in the Nancy Drew series, and it is compelling and I loved the prospect of a haunted house. The characters were good, though sometimes slightly confusing.overall this was a great read!

Kids’ Club Review by Lily: Good night stories for rebel girls

Good night stories for rebel girls, by Elena Favilli, Francesca Cavallo

Goodnight Stories for Rebele Girls is a really fantastic collection of stories about women who dared to stand up for what was right, be their own person and follow their dreams. It teaches us to stand up for ourselves and what we believe is right. It also teaches us to believe in ourselves and not to give up. So dare to be different like all of these women have and strive to make the world a better place.

Kids’ Club Review by Josie: The bungalow mystery

The bungalow mysteryThe bungalow mystery, by Carolyn Keene

This book was very good, the characters were well developed and I liked the part where Nancy didn’t know that help was coming, so she fought for herself. The impersonation of Mr Aborn and the reveal of it to Nancy.
