STOP! Go read The Book Stop

Have you met Jack? The Book Stop blog has become a favourite hideout over the last few months - with Jack’s insatiable diet of, well, EVERYTHING.

For starters check out his blog on Michael Grant’s Gone series… and the emotional ending that we all faced when reading: You are now free to leave the FAYZ.

A truly brilliant set of characters and an epic story line.
