Announcement: New Junior Reviewer

Meet Jessica Brown. She is a ten year old girl who LOVES writing stories, drawing and eating lollies. She has a big heart and a big imagination! The only thing bigger than these things is her appetite for sugar!

Jessica joins our KBR family as our newest Junior Reviewer. Along with her brother, Caelan Brown, and fellow reviewer, Jessica, Jess can't wait to share some of her best-loved reads with us.

Jessica, likes to read books about how to annoy her big brother...but she really enjoys mystery books and books about cooking. Her hobbies include playing baseball, art, cooking, gaming, writing stories, going to school and playing with her friends. 

She LOVES travelling and eating Roti Canai for breakfast (an Indian flatbread). She has her own business called Gemlet Designs. It's where she gets to makes wands using gems. 

When she gets older she would like to travel the world as a travel writer and food taster. She would also like to be a teacher. Before all that happens, we look forward to sharing her love of books with you all.
