Our April Book of the Month
The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart

by Holly Ringland

Steph says: They say it takes a village to raise a child. In the case of Alice Hart, it took three; the seaside village of her birth, the community of women at Thornfield Flower Farm where she grew up, and the residents of a desert town where she went to find herself. It took Agnes, Sally, June, Twig, Candy, Lulu and Ruby; each woman carrying her own secrets, broken past and fragmented being. 
It was this interlocking of strong characters and these richly drawn settings that stood out to me most as I read The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart, as well as the inspire, well-developed and relatable language of flowers Ringland has created.

Our April Kids' Book of the Month
The Astonishing Colour of After
 
by Emily X R Pan

Mischa says;

If this book were a colour, it would be “every colour in the world, alight.” The second I began reading this book I knew it was going to be something special. The lyrical and otherworldly style of Emily X.R. Pan’s writing style alone is enough to make this a beguiling and transportive read. Coupled with the captivating story of Leigh, a sixteen-year-old girl who is left feeling lost and guilty after her mother commits suicide whilst she was far away from home stupidly kissing her best friend Axel, this novel is a truly exquisite and poignant read. Leigh’s grief takes her on a journey of hope and magic as she follows her mother - in the form of a red bird - back to her home country in Taiwan where she uncovers long buried family secrets and things she never knew about her culture. The Astonishing Colour of After painted my world with a kaleidoscope of emotions and has embedded itself in my heart forever.
