Welcome back and best wishes for 2013.

Circle of secrets
By Kimberely Griffiths
Little

I found this little gem which had escaped me but it is never too late to share good books no matter when they were published. All copies throughout the city libraries are in use so I have to wait my turn but the reviews have me hanging out for this book. The trailer is lovely and just adds to my need to read or buy this book.

When Shelby was ten her mother walked out. Never wanting to talk to her again she is suddenly forced to live with her mother in the Louisiana Bayou when her father has to go overseas.
Shelby is bullied and teased at her school but finally finds a new friend, Gwen a rather mysterious girl living alone on the bayou. There are puzzling messages in the blue bottle tree behind her house. Who is leaving the messages and just who really is Gwen?
:ife on the Bayou is so different to life here in New Zealand and that is reason enough to read these two books.

The healing spell
Another story by Kimberley Griffiths Little set in the Bayou

Twelve-year-old Livie has a secret and it is eating her up inside.
Knowing it is her fault her mother is in a coma, Livie knows also that she must find a way to awaken her mother.
Livie struggles also, to find her own place in her family but it is hard with three sisters and so much guilt.
