Another brilliant book from the wonderfully talented Jane Elson
Jane Elson has crafted a truly special story about overcoming fears, dealing with grief and the power of friendship. A wonderfully empathetic and moving read...
I loved this book, the chapter structures, the language, the character development, the figure-of-eight shaped village, and most of all, Bee, as she gains in confidence under the supportive eye of those who show her they care.
...gripping story with dramatic moments leading to an intense, heart-stopping climax.
Warm and dreamy with just the right amount of quirk for young readers to identify with if they feel like outsiders
Fantastically inspirational stuff about friendships and growing up.
Swimming to the Moon has it all. Cleverly written in first person, characters leap from the pages as real (and wildly imaginative) as can be ... A great story with fine structure, wonderful characters and a warm happy ending.
