Publisher: Barrington Stoke
Rating: 4/5 stars



Book Summary:

Ruby has had a lot of foster siblings over the years, but none of them has been anything like Clara. After growing up in almost complete isolation, Clara is distraught at being separated from her mother and overwhelmed by life in a world she doesn’t understand. But the more Ruby tries to help Clara fit in, the more she realises she has to face up to some struggles of her own.

Book Review:

True Sisters was a book that I was highly anticipated when I was offered a review as I love the easy nature of reading their books as they are perfect for people with dyslexia. I think that Keren David does a great job with this story and it was so a well-crafted story that is told in such a great way. It is a must read.

Honestly, when I requested the book I was first attracted to Keren David's name as I really enjoyed her book This Is Not A Love Story so really wanted to more from her and this was a great chance. I didn't really know what the plot was but I was pleasantly surprised by the relationship between Ruby and Clara and how this book deals with care. This was definitely a highlight of the book and made it a good thing as many books don't focus on this.

The relationship between Ruby and Clara was also well written and I like how evenly paced the relationship was as it developed through the course of the book. I also liked how Ruby was written as the fact that she was gay was just part of a story and it was just really great how it was handled. The book also deals with sensitive subjects and I really enjoyed the whole story. 

I also really enjoyed how quickly the story went and how easy it was to read. I read it so quickly and devoured the story as I read most of it in one night. It is just a really good story and I highly recommend people to read it. 

The Verdict:

True Sisters is a short book that packs a big punch for such a small book. It is definitely worth the read!

Female Representation in Harry Potter: A Transcription

Considering this keeps gaining attention, I just wanted to clarify that I no longer support J.K. Rowling and the Harry Potter series. I'm not sure why people are clicking on this but, the views in this post do not reflect my current views and I only posted it on my blog so that it could be shared as not many people came to the event when it first happened.  So later today, in 2 hours I am going to be doing a presentation on Female Representation in Harry Potter for my university's Harry Potter Society and I thought some of you may be interested in what I had to say. I also respect that people may disagree with my views on the subject and understand that this is not the only opinion you can have. So here it is... Hello, everyone. Thank you for coming! Today I am going to discuss female representation in Harry Potter books and films. The aims of this presentation would be to introduce you to the fact that female representation in Harry Potter may not be what it seems. So you
