This year we are going to review books daily until the reviews run out. By doing this for individual books this gives people a chance to do their own research on the books and authors by using the links provided and not miss out by being bombarded by a whole lot at once like we have done in previous years.

Each post is set out as comprehensively as possible with the name of who submitted it, the name of the book and author and a short review in the form of a comment from whoever submitted it.

Todays review came from Shazza


Remember Me

By Derek Hansen.

Shazza said: “Set in Auckland 1950’s. If you want to remember your childhood, bare feet, making huts, post ww2 nz then you’ll love this book. Great story, cleverly written from the view of a 12 year old boy. Everyone I shared this book with went on to read more from the author, but this is his best in my opinion. Something really different.”

Amazon said “1956. A twelve year old boy writes an essay which inadvertently uncovers a secret from World War II: a secret of a boat adrift on a moonless night, and a treacherous act of kindness. His discovery start chain of events that rips a close community appart, turning friend against friend, neighbour against neighbour. Australian author.”
