I'm currently doing a very sneaky, secret read....this is the second time in the last two weeks that I've done this.
I bought this book as one of the presents for my daughter, Sasha's, birthday. She is ten tomorrow. Thing is, I really wanted to read it so I've started it, being super careful not to break the spine, or spill anything on it etc etc. Also, she can't see the book so I have to sneakily read it behind closed doors and squirrel the book away in drawers.
I managed to do the same for the book I am giving my other daughter, Fay who turns thirteen tomorrow (yes, same birthday!) but I'm not sure I'll get away with it twice. Fay's book, if you're interested is Contagion by Teri Terry. Managed to get that one signed...not so lucky with Frank Cottrell Boyce.
