Corey will be reading from Killing Gravity, the first book in the VoidWitch Saga trilogy at First Chapters on Friday 1 February.

Junior Book Club Review of "You Must Already Be A Winner" by Chloe

The story held a really important theme of care/help, ignorance and truth.  Olivia and Berk didn't have much of an idea about what was going on with their parents, so I think their parents should have sat down with Olivia and Berk to tell them what was going on and not to hide the truth from them.

I think that Bart is a really important part of the story.  As soon as Bart comes into the story he gives Olivia hope.  She then starts to face every day with a bit more of a positive attitude…
