Hey, LilyMay here. I’m a new writer on Shannon‘s site. I will be writing a few book reviews and other posts during my time here on Little Sea Bear. For my first post, I have decided to review the book: Frozen Charlotte by Alex Bell. This is my first review… Sorry if it is terrible […]
This is a difficult one to rate for me. It has good parts and bad parts that force me to choose between what I have learned as a creative writer and reading it as a reader.
