    Review by a 10 year girl: Marilyn was justing doing a book signing in Coromandel on Friday, 8th January 2010 when a 10 year old girl came running up to her clutching her book which she had bought a couple of days earlier, she was so excited to see Marilyn J Bakker and wanted her signature in her copy too. She said it was the best book she's ever read! And she's only up to chapter 9!!

    I tell you, you don't want to miss this first book ever by an emergent NZ writer. Even as an adult I found this book exciting and very well written.
