Face to Face

Face To Face

by Sandra Glover [Corgi Childrens]
Price: £5.00 -

by sandra Glover. Published by Andersen Press.

Someone once said to me ‘Don’t you just hate it when you start reading a book and then realise you’ve read it before.’ I looked at her blankly – surely that would never really happen; surely you could never read that many books! But it happened to me last night. This is what I remember about Face to Face by Sandra Glover.

I never thought I’d pick up a book only to discover I’d read it before and had forgotten. Well, my memory is crap and I’m reading more than I used to, so I suppose it was bound to happen. I was in the library, saw a book by Sandra Glover and knowing that I like her books, I picked it up. ‘This seems familiar’ I thought when I started reading it last night. And yes, I have read it before, so this is a remembered review really as I didn’t read it again.

This is a story of Adelle who begins a new school but doesn’t feel comfortable making new friends. The first page begins with her worrying about her fat thighs, and at first I was worried that this was going to be another ‘Teenagers – you mustn’t diet too much because it is bad for you’ type book; but it wasn’t at all. There is so much more to her character than worrying about being fat, to the point where it is literally haunting. And I completely didn’t guess what the twist in the story was going to be. I think it’s revealed about half way through and I was totally surprised.

I’d definitely recommend this book for young adults.

Full Review of Glastonbury Festival 2016
June 29, 2016
This year will be known for two things: the referendum and the mud. I hardly saw an act that didn’t mention both of those things. I’m sure you will have heard about both from plenty of other people, so I’m not going to dwell on either. This is going to be one long post about the entire five days, so fetch yourself a mug of hot chocolate and if you don’t quite make it all the way through, just leave the tab open and come back again later! ….
The romance of a well
November 18, 2016
I was pretty much brought up on Enid Blyton and it instilled in me a desire to live in a cute cottage in a countryside village. A well in the garden would be an added bonus. Well, although more of a farmhouse than a cottage, I am lucky enough to have fulfilled that dream. We were told by the previous owner that the well in the garden used to also serve the farmworkers’ cottages opposite. The path leading from the well to an iron gate half way down the garden would suggest that’s true. We live at the top of a hill, and as far as I’m aware, the only other well at the top of the hill in Somerset is in a small village called Kilmersdon, which is famous for the Jack and Jill nursery rhyme. Wouldn’t it be cool if that’s a mistake and it was actually our well? Haha!….
Slissie review
A chance to curb your cravings? A review of the Slissie
June 5, 2017
This is a new product, so I’ll begin by telling you what on earth a Slissie is! To be honest, it’s a bit difficult to explain, but it’s a weight-loss device that looks a little bit like a vape, and you suck on it like it is a vape, however there’s no actual vapour! Instead, it releases a burst of flavour into your mouth, and the idea is that it will trick your brain into thinking you’ve eaten something sweet, and therefore your cravings will be satisfied without actually having the calories of eating anything…..
