Review: Twelve year old Noah Bradley is cursed: all the members of the Bradley family are. Ever since their ancestors crossed the ‘people of the hills’, members of the Bradley family have no where they can call home. The curse always finds them, destroying the home they have made in different ways from flash floods to typhoons. Fortunately, there are always signs that the curse is catching up – black cats crossing their path, the appearance of the birds. Noah knows they must constantly watch for the signs and move as soon as they appear. However, Noah loves their thirteenth home in Verity Close. For the first time he feels settled. He’s made friends at school and desperately wants to stay. That’s why he ignores the signs until it is almost too late. Will he lose everything, including his mum and his younger brother Billy, or is there, maybe, a way to finally break the curse? A middle grade story set in modern times with an ancient curse. It’s certainly a unique idea but I wasn’t quite sure how well it would work. When I opened the book and read the prologue explaining the curse, my concerns increased. I’d promised to review the book. I’d committed to being part of the blog tour. What was I going to say if I hated this book? I certainly wasn’t convinced by these opening pages. Luckily, I then turned to chapter one and my worries evaporated. I loved this book. Noah’s first person voice is appealing, relatable and very easy to read. The story is also instantly intriguing. Author, Amber Lee Dodd, skilfully weaves a lot of backstory into the opening chapters, adding layer upon layer of interest and intrigue without losing the focus on her characters. The plot becomes increasingly gripping as the story progresses, particularly as we begin to realise that Noah is deliberately ignoring the signs. Then, when everything starts to unravel, the plot takes another turn and we realise there may just be a way to break the curse. But it is dangerous. Noah and Billy will need to act but will they be able to judge who to trust? The climax is suitably exciting while the resolution is satisfying, bringing us back to the characters. I was impressed the way that all three main characters – Noah, Billy (his brother) and Neena (his neighbour and friend) – have their own character arch and all develop and change as a result of the events of the story. This gives the book a real depth, lifting it from an enjoyable and exciting read to a powerful story about family, friendship and being true to who you really are.

Review: Another stunning read from Amber Lee Dodd. I loved the balance of the contemporary setting against the ancient curse of family legend and was wowed by the mystery-laden prologue – it really set the scene for the rest of the story so brilliantly. Lee Dodd has cleverly explored the very complex dynamics of any and every family, compounded in this case by the possession of a powerful magical object and their inability to put down roots. She carefully explored how this impacted on the emotional well-being of each family member and how they coped with that.

    Description: Grandpa and Noah are sitting on a bench in a square that keeps getting smaller every day. As they wait together on the bench, they tell jokes and discuss their shared love of mathematics. Grandpa recalls what it was like to fall in love with his wife, what it was like to lose her. She's as real to him now as the first day he met her, but he dreads the day when he won't remember her. Sometimes Grandpa sits on the bench next to Ted, Noah's father - Ted who never liked maths, prefers writing and playing guitar, and has waited his entire life for his father to have time for him, to accept him. But in their love of Noah, they have found a common bond. Grandpa, Ted and Noah all meet here, in this peculiar space that is growing dimmer and more confusing all the time. And here is where they will learn to say goodbye, the scent of hyacinths in the air, nothing to fear.
