Review: I had no idea about how politics works properly but now I have read this book it makes a lot more sense to me. This book is easy to read and it explains things very simply using pictures and diagrams. Most people say politics is boring, but once you have read this book it makes you think differently about it.

When the Mountains Roared
By Jess Butterworth 
| Publisher: Orion Children's Books

When Ruby's dad uproots her from Australia to set up a hotel in the mountains of India, Ruby is devastated. Not only are they living in a run-down building in the middle of the wilderness surrounded by scorpions, bears and leopards, but Ruby is sure that India will never truly feel like home - not without her mum there. Ever since her mum died, Ruby has been afraid. Of cars. Of the dark. Of going to sleep and never waking up. But then the last remaining leopards of the mountain are threatened and everything changes. Ruby vows to do all she can to protect them - if she can only overcome her fears... BUY IT ON AMAZON

Review: I think that this is a very good book to read if you are an animal lover or if you like mysteries. Another reason I liked this story is because it was a simple plan made into a very enjoyable novel. The tension between some chapters kept me reading on and on, but I didn't want to stop so I ended up reading it in only 2 days! I really enjoyed this heart-warming novel.
