Book Review: Summer Skin by Kirsty Eagar

Summer Skin

Self-aware, confident, and sexy – it’s little wonder that Summer Skin is making waves amongst the blogging circle.

TGFE

The Girl From Everywhere is one of the most anticipated debuts of the year, fitting right into the growing YA niche market of time travel, pirate ships and inspired historical fiction.
