Junior Review: Wyrd

The title of this book is a little strange….. but it has a certain ring to it. This book attracted me because of the blurb. It reads, Emma and Pip cannot seem to get along. This shouldn’t be a problem, if it weren’t for the fact that Emma’s dad is getting married to Pip’s mum!  
This got me wondering about how the story might end. The narrative had a thread of mystery and adventure throughout it. It was intriguing and made me want more and more.

Emma is the main character and the whole story revolves around her. Her mother died when she was young and Emma secretly wishes her Mum could come back.

Pip is the mysterious one and throughout the story, she is the mean girl. She bullies Emma and her best friend Sophie.

I couldn’t put this book down at al!

I would recommend this book for ages nine to fourteen.
