Mockingbird by Julie  Trimingham
"This book reads so beautifully that it seems to have just slid right off of the pen. It is lyrical and refined and graceful yes all of this and in equal part, very funny. Mia, the main character, is written to posses quite a dry wit - how else to..." Read more of this review »

“So Matilda’s strong young mind continued to grow, nurtured by the voices of all those authors who had sent their books out into the world like ships on the sea. These books gave Matilda a hopeful and comforting message: You are not alone.”
