Kids’ Corner - Competitions


Aleesah Darlison's latest novel, Running from the tiger, is a tale of trust and friendship: "When eleven-year-old Ebony meets enigmatic Teena, they instantly become much more than the 'default' friends Ebony has grown used to having. Only when the girls come to trust one another fully do they unlock each other's troubling secrets, enabling their friendship to deepen..."
