With the weather quickly turning (winter is coming!) what better book to settle down to than Kevin Brooks’ ‘Born Scared’?
Set on Christmas Eve, it follows Elliot, a boy who is afraid of pretty much everything… and has to face his fears in the most gripping and stomach churning ways. It’s a brilliant read. But don’t just take our word for it, we’re not alone in this assessment:
Starting it off right:
