Kids’ Club Review by keya: Thirst

ThirstThirst, by Lizzie Wilcock

Kandra Hooke doesn’t need anything, or anyone. On the way to her sixth foster home, she experiences a crash involving her, a dead driver and a kangaroo, then, she makes her move. Armed with a backpack, some clothes, a drink bottle, and a frayed photo of a mother she hasn’t seen in years, she heads into a fatal desert. There’s only one thing in her way.

Eight year old Solomon.

Right here folks, the library has what you like, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child!  I was surprised that it wasn’t at the top of the list last month, but it sure is now.  The new script version of Harry Potter’s future has been mighty popular. Olympian and time travelling heroes are also highly prized, with accomplished authors Rick Riordan and Eoin Colfer in the run up for the Top 10.
