Now whose ballet dreams are haunted by a past she's still running from? And is the sparkling fox friend or foe?After a fresh start in the Scottish Highlands turns bad Makena flees to the mountains But will they betray her or be the making of her A story which shows the gritty side of life with beautiful messages of hope Lauren St John has clearly done her research Whether we were in Kenya or Scotland all the detail made me feel as if I was right there I loved the comparison between the two countries and how precious snow is to Makena As well as being a lovely metaphor for her precious friendship the idea of snow being almost mythological made it possible to imagine life in a warm climateMakena and Snow are great characters Makena is uite rational but wants to believe in miracles and fairytales She’s a perfect friend for Snow who searches every day for the beautiful things in live Living in the slums only makes Snow determined to appreciate small wonders Snow wants to be a professional ballet dancer and she refuses to give up on her dreams There are some powerful messages in here and it will make you reevaluate your own lifeThere are some difficult themes and you will reach for the tissues I am glad Ebola has been recorded in a story – it is important for children to know these things happen in the world What’s lovely is how none of the characters are drawn as victims although the horrors of the slums aren’t shied away from you don’t realise how much Makena has suffered until an aid worker comes in and we see Makena through her eyes None of the horrors Makena faces – from gang warfare to famine to the ‘reaper’ who snatches children from the slums – are shown gratuitously or in a way which would upset young readers but the fact these things happen is not shied away from or sugar coated Lauren St John has handled difficult themes in her writing before and she always shows just enough to help her readers understand the situation The parts of the story which take place in Scotland are beautiful and I love how the fox links the two sections together Lauren St John’s novels are brilliant for animal lovers and this is no exception When Makena loses all other hope she turns to animals and to her beloved mountainsShort but sweet Look no further if you want a book with a real heart this Christmas

mobi The Snow Angel

The Snow AngelLauren St John's stunning Christmas classic is about forgotten children the power of nature to heal us and a girl who will climb mountains in search for a place to call homeGrowing up in vibrant crowded Nairobi Makena has only one dream to climb In brief What a lovely tale It's not perfect but it should bring a tear to the eyeThis is a story about Makena and her life first in Africa and then in Scotland Her father is a climbing guide and she loves the mountains and hopes one day to be a climber like her father However events conspire against her and her life starts to unravel This is Makena's story as she journeys through hard times I really liked Makena as a character There is a real charm to her and I felt engaged with her as a character Much of the description left me with a clear image of places and people too I guess parts of the book are a little dark or even depressing however there is also joy and it is life affirmingThe last part of the book should bring a tear to the eye of any human being for my money It is wonderfully warm and rich I have a slight reservation about the timing in the book; the first two thirds goes at uite a slow pace though certainly not too slowly however the last third does feel rushed to me I guess I'd have liked the book to be called Silver Fox or something similar but that doesn't affect this as a read at allIt is a story for young adults however I certainly enjoyed it and would happily recommend it to my grandchildren when they are a little older I'm not sure the message has great depth but it does have charm affection and resilience I enjoyed itNote I received an advance digital copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for a fair reviewhttpviewsonorgukfictionsnow an
