I liked the short, snappy chapters and fact that the overall message is a positive one, but the story itself wasn't to my tastes. "Posioned" was a 2 star read for me, but I'd still recommend it for fantasy fans, or someone who enjoys fairy tale retellings.
"The Colours That Blind" tells an important story through the eyes of a young albino boy and his grandmother. I enjoyed the plot, but for me, the dual timelines and terminology meant that I couldn't enjoy this as much as I had wanted to. This was a 2 star read for me.
“The Last Paper Crane" tells the emotional, haunting story of a young man's struggle for survival following the atomic bomb in Hiroshima. I really enjoyed the poignant narrative and feel that I've learned a lot through this eye opening tale - 5 stars!
“The Lost Lights of St Kilda" is a tale of love, hope and culture that I'm sad to say that wasn't really my cup of tea. This is a beautifully written book and I'm sure it is one that will be adored by many, but for me it was a little slow moving and that took away from my overall enjoyment. I'm rating this one 2 stars.
