I ran my first-ever book giveaway a few months ago, after Allen & Unwin kindly sent me a review copy of Careful What You Wish For by Maureen McCarthy (RRP $15.99).
Regular readers know I love to read, and review, books, but on this occasion, I thought: Why not let someone the book is aimed for, the chance to review the book instead?
Basically the book is aimed at girls aged between about 9 and 12, although it would appear to boys as well.
(One of the main characters is a rather mysterious boy).
After putting out the call for interested reviewers, the lucky winner was a delightful 10-year-old called Lily.
Here is her review:
Careful What You Wish For
Careful What You Wish For is the greatest book I have ever read!
This book will take you on fantastic journey with Ruth who is a young girl that doesn't appreciate her life.
Strange events occur around a magic rat named Rodney. Now I wont give too much away about Rodney, but Ruth goes on quite a journey and even goes back in time!!
This book makes me realise that sometimes the best things are right in front of you and even in your own home! And to appreciate what you have.
This book, honestly, I could never ever put down !
I could even talk about how good it was for hours and hours!
I can't wait to read more of Maureen McCarthy books!
I give this book 10 out of 10. Trust me you will love it!
Thanks Lily, for your awesome review!
