North of Nowhere Blog Stop!
Last year I was introduced to Liz Kessler's writing when I read and enjoyed her standalone book, A Year Without Autumn. I received some lovely news when I found out that Liz will be releasing a second standalone book, North of Nowhere. Liz has very kindly provided a guest post for me to share with you, something which will surely pique your interest of her latest book. Here is what Liz would like to share with you:
I’m really excited to have been invited onto this blog to tell you about my new book, North of Nowhere.
Thank you so much to Liz for taking the time to write this piece, and also to Orion.
NORTH OF NOWHERE by Liz Kessler is published by Orion Children’s Books on 24 January in hardback at £9.99
