From the Review Pile (39)

From the Review Pile is a meme hosted by Stepping Out of the Page every Thursday.
The aim of this meme is to showcase books that you've received for review (or if you don't receive review books, any book that you own and really want to read/review) but haven't yet got around to reading, in order to give the book some extra publicity.

I know that a lot of you have a huge pile of books that you want to read/review, but it understandably takes a while to get around to reading them all - here you can give a book (or two!) some of the publicity that it deserves, even if you haven't read it yet!

This week, I'm going to showcase Anthem for Jackson Dawes!

This week I'm featuring another contemporary book - Anthem for Jackson Dawes. I am really excited about getting stuck into this book, I love the premise and hope that it'll be something that I will really enjoy.
Anthem For Jackson Dawes by Celia Bryce

1st January 2013 by Bloomsbury

Megan Bright and Jackson Dawes are two teenagers who first meet each other on the hospital ward where they are both being treated for cancer. Megan is scared and worried about her illness, but Jackson seems to be an old hand, having been on the ward for ages. And everybody loves Jackson! He is a whirlwind of life and energy, warmth and sparkle. Megan will need to borrow some of Jackson's extraordinary optimism to face her and Jackson's future. A moving story of first love and a remarkably powerful debut novel.


  1. That sounds good! I love the cover of the book too! :D

  2. I really enjoyed this book. I felt like I was going on the journey with Megan and Jackson and was feeling what the characters were. The author is able to deal with the issues in a sensitive, yet informative way. The story of Megan and Jackson is one that stays with you even after you have finished the book.

  3. I always hesitate a little when it comes to cancer books, but this one sounds interesting. Looking forward to your thoughts on it!

  4. This sounds like a tear jerker; but I love a really good emotional read!

    I've posted a FTRP also:


Unfortunately this is an award and tag free zone - Whilst I appreciate the thought, I simply don't have the time to pass them on.

Please feel free to leave a reply, I read and appreciate them all!
