Giveaway Nine


The wonderful people at Usborne have given me 3 fab titles to giveaway all as separate giveaways!










A huge thank you to Anne at Usborne for these books!

Prize 1 – 1 x The Boy Who Sailed The Ocean In An Armchair by Lara Williamson


Becket Rumsey is all at sea. His dad has run away with him and his brother Billy in the middle of the night. And they’ve left everything behind, including their almost-mum Pearl. Becket has no idea what’s going on – it’s a mystery. So with the help of Billy and a snail called Brian, Becket sets out on a journey of discovery. It’s not plain sailing but then what journeys ever are? An extraordinary story of courage, dreams and finding your way.

Prize 2 – 1 x Am I Normal Yet by Holly Bourne   51Ss4gT6s-L__SX326_BO1,204,203,200_   All Evie wants is to be normal. And now that she’s almost off her meds and at a new college where no one knows her as the-girl-who-went-nuts, there’s only one thing left to tick off her list… But relationships can mess with anyone’s head – something Evie’s new friends Amber and Lottie know only too well. The trouble is, if Evie won’t tell them her secrets, how can they stop her making a huge mistake?
