GIVEAWAY and Book Review: Fierce September

Fierce September - by Fleur Beale

Juno and the Taris inhabitants have to leave their dying island and go Outside.  The young people are entranced despite the hate campaign against them - they love the fashions, the technologies and, best of all for Juno, the freedom from extreme control. But, only days after the group arrives, a pandemis hits that has drastic consequences for Juno and her people.
Juno is shocked to find the island held more secrets that any of them knew.  She wants to bury her head, ignore what she's discovered and forge ahead to find her own place in this new world.  But Juno finds she can't stay hidden in the background when danger threatens the people of Taris.  It will take courage and determination to save them

Another magnificent, couldn't put down read.  This book had me in tears at times, and in fits of laughter at other times.  It bought back many fond memories of my teenage years.  Fleur Beale, once again had me entranced from the first chapter of the book.  It was so hard to put the book down {which I had to do many times, as we were in the middle of moving house}.  Just like with Juno of Taris I felt like I was right there, walking beside Juno, as she searched her new life to find out what the world had in store for her and her friends/family.  Juno cements firm friendships in this book and also gathers a few enemies along the way - nothing short of real life for today's teenagers.

Another book that I would recommend to all.  It should be compulsary reading during English at highschool if you ask me.

When I get the chance to sit down with a book, which doesn't happen very often, it's snuggled up in bed in the morning, or if on holiday in the sun :-)

I only ever read in bed and I'm usually lucky to finish a chapter before getting too sleepy! I do like reading Little Golden Books to Elijah though
