Chain of Gold Review: The Book I’ve Been Waiting 4 Years For

Toffee Review: Sarah Crossan at Her Finest

Toffee Review: Sarah Crossan at Her Finest

I’ve read all of Sarah Crossan’s books and Toffee is probably my favourite of hers. Like with her other books, Toffee tackles hard-hitting topics in verse and makes us feel all of the emotions. And because it’s written in verse, it’s a really quick but impactful read. Toffee is a beautiful story about families of choice and finding acceptance […]
