The Week at World’s End

Reviewed by Sophie, age 14

The Week at World’s End is an interesting book set during the Cold War about a runaway, a friendshp and a day when the world held its breath. It is a good book and there were a lot of really brilliant plot twists. It was a quick, easy read with lots of turns so you kept wanting to know what was going to happen next.

I find Emma Caroll’s writings very fascinating and hard to put down. I love all of her characters and find it fun being able to see inside their minds because they are all so well thought out and they almost seem like real people for the time being.

I’ve read all of Emma Carroll’s books except Secrets of a Sun King and When We Were Warriors.
