The second YA book from Kate Mallinder, Asking For A Friend was published this week and the reviews are coming in thick & fast:
"Mallinder both draws out the best and worst of social issues as a teen across the book and I hope that the experiences of this trio give hope and self-belief to young readers that it can get better."
Lily and the Fae blog
"I am a huge fan of Kate’s writing... I can see a lot of teens relating to these characters and that’s just fantastic. A story about true friendship and determination."
Kirsty's Book Buying Addiction blog
"Kate Mallinder is the new queen of YA contemporary and I cannot wait to see what she does next."

The first reader review for Mike Hollow's forthcoming novel, The Blitz Detective, is in!
"The book is well-plotted. I liked the setting and the protagonist, but the thing I liked the most about this story is the detailed description of life in London back then. With mesmerising narration and wonderful character development, this book is a sweet pick. And after reading The Four Symbols I was looking for more WW2 stuff and this surely satisfied me. I would gladly recommend this book."
The book is released on 23rd July by Allison & Busby.
