NZ Read Aloud: (continuing with) Shadow of the Boyd
(Refer to our review about this book which includes this comment:
**I found the book an interesting and thought filled read.
Yet since I tend to err on the side of caution, I would be recommending to use Shadow of the Boyd as a read aloud to more mature pre-teens. For our family, I wouldn't give our children this book as a reader
