Blog Tour Review - Looking for Lucie by Amanda Addison

 Blog Tour Review - Looking for Lucie by Amanda Addison "Where are you really from?" It's a question every brown girl in a white-washed town is familiar with, and one that Lucie has never been able to answer. All she knows is that her mother is white, she's never met her father, and she looks nothing like the rest of her family. She can't even talk about it because everyone says it shouldn't matter! Well, it matters to Lucie and-with her new friend Nav, who knows exactly who he is-she's determined to find some answers. What do you do when your entire existence is a question with no answer? You do a DNA test. Looking for Lucie is a fascinating look at what it is like growing up mixed race in contemporary Britain.

Blog Tour - Grace-Ella Witch Camp

Blog Tour - Grace-Ella: Witch Camp by Sharon Marie Jones

Good morning,

Today I am joining in the blog tour for an absolutely charming new book, Grace-Ella: Witch Camp by Sharon Marie Jones.

This is the second Grace-Ella story, though it's the first I've read. Grace-Ella is a young girl who's found out that she's actually a witch, and in this story she goes off to witch camp to try and earn her Spells for Beginners certificate.

At camp she makes new friends, learns new magic and gets into all sorts of bother. The story has lovely messages there about the importance of helping people, supporting each other, and about self belief and confidence too.

It's lower middle grade, suitable for young readers, with lovely illustrations by Adrianna J Puglisi throughout.

As part of the blog tour, I'm really pleased to be able to bring you this extract from the book. On her first night at camp Grace-Ella is having trouble sleeping. Settling down with her copy of the Book of Rules, she finds the following story to read.

I'm giving Grace-Ella: Witch Camp four moons, it's a sweet, lovely little story.


Grace-Ella: Witch Camp is written by Sharon Marie Jones and illustrated by Adriana J Puglisi. It is available now, published by Firefly, and is recommended for ages 7-9.

I was given a copy in return for an honest review and participation in this blog tour.
