  1. It looks as though we have a very similar taste in books – if I had to highlight some reviews I’d have included almost all the ones you mention.

    I got Little Hands Clapping last night and am very excited about reading it. I’m looking forward to reading The Rapture and Black Mamba Boy soon too.

    Thanks for mentioning me – I hope you decide to get a copy of Rupture and enjoy it as much as I did.

    You’re quite welcome, Jackie — though I’ve already read amd reviewed (and liked!) Rupture.

    Little Hands Clapping, The Rapture and Black Mamba Boy are all good books, so I hope you’ll enjoy them!
