    2. This book is about a young girl named Gussie who needs a heart and lung transplant, she decides to focus on the things that are important to her like finding her ancestors, coping with her parents divorce and looking for wildlife. Anne Kelley perfectly capture the young optimism and hope in Gussie without her becoming too adult due to the severity of her condition which i think is very difficult to do. She also never gives you a character to pity, Gussie is strong, sharp and bright and fully abo [...]

    3. I didn' t realise that this was the sequel to the first in the series so I kind of started backwards. I think the best thing about this book was the setting and the description of it, Cornwall is a good place to set a book, I think. Also, I like the idea of photography for a book subject.

    4. Amazing! I wish I had know that there was a prequel befor egetting this out of the library. This book was so deep and moving, and I loved the ending! I want to know more.

    5. A charming,easy to read book that evoked really strong visual images of the Cornish scenes described.Whilst probably aimed at young adults it was nevertheless a book that I enjoyed and would recommend.A likeable simplicity and innocence to the book that makes a change from murder and mayhem!

    6. Easy to read, I liked the descriptions of nature and birds, but by about two thirds through I got a bit bored with it. However good to highlight, and get readers to think about, the need for organ donation, especially reading the author's background.

    7. I wasn't very fond of this book. Honestly I didn't like it.I didn't hate it enough to set fire to it but I will definitely not be reading this book ever again.The Bower Bird was just so boring.I had to force myself to sit down to read this:I skiped quite a few pages in this book. I was going to stop reading it quite a few times but I don't like not finishing a book (if I started reading it then I have to finish it).This book was given to me by a friend and it seems that, in giving me this book, [...]

    8. I liked this - a pleasing return to the characters and place first met in The Burying Beetle. More of the same - simple, touching, sincere. It's YA books like this that give me hope that the young readers out there might be getting something good alongside their dystopian sagas and glittering vampires!

    9. Set in St Ives Cornwall, it is a story of an 11 year old girl called Gussie, who needs a heart and lung transplant. Not a sad read but wasn't sure where the story was trying to go. Lovely to read about one of my favourite places in England.
