A fairytale theme park gone wrong, an android princess searching for humanity, and the seedy side of making dreams come true? The Kingdom is a brilliant mash up of sci-fi and fantasy that’ll get you thinking for sure.
Review: The Middler
Dystopia tends to be the domain of YA fiction, so I was really interested to see how it would work for middle grade readers in The Middler… And the answer is, brilliantly!

I don’t remember exactly when this book hit my radar, but I knew from the minute I heard the title that it was going to be my kind of thing!
