REVIEWS OF RED SNOW

It's a bonny book, written with sensitivity.  Red Snow is a book about how we make friends and learning to trust others as well as our own instincts. It's about how sometimes adults don't always know the answers to straightforward questions and how if we look and listen carefully we can make sense of things however complicated or hard they are. It's a book with a clear message and it will appeal to any young person preparing for "big" school.

FIVE STARS

I really enjoyed this book and didn’t want to put it down! I loved the main character, Megan, and felt like I was in her shoes and was experiencing the story along with her. It was so intriguing and exciting and was a wonderful book. I can’t wait for the next one to come out!!!

FIVE STARS

This is an amazing story. It is very easy to read and connect with the characters. I love the way the author ended the book.

FIVE STARS

A STORY OF TRUST AND UNDERSTANDING.

As the reader is drawn into the story of Red Snow, it is clear that there are many mysteries to uncover. Why is the boy next door trailing into the woods at night? Why won't Megan's dad talk about the loss of Megan's mum? Why does he forbid Megan from reaching out to the intriguing Irene? Why does Megan feel that she is surrounded by secrets and half forgotten memories and why are none of the adults she knows willing to explain anything to her? As the story unfolds, the reader is drawn ever deeper into the narrative and like Megan tries to make sense of the mystery surrounding the death of her mother. Red Snow is a book about friendship, instinct and learning that sometimes the harsh reality of truth might be the better path to take. Red Snow also deals with the issue of depression and post-traumatic stress sensitively and although aimed at readers aged 9-11, it can be enjoyed by readers older than this.
