One Response to Review Policy

  1. Dear Midnightians,

    I wonder if you might be interested in reviewing an action adventure young adult ebook called The Secret of Sinbad’s Cave. Imagine Famous Five meets Treasure Island set in New Zealand – with a mystical twist. Here’s a quick synopsis:

    Nat Sheppard’s world is turned upside down on the first day of the school holidays by the discovery of a secret room containing cave maps with clues to an ancient treasure. But Nat and her friends soon discover they’re not the only ones chasing the jewels. Professional treasure hunters are on the trail – and they’re prepared to eliminate anyone in their way.

    Let me know if you would be interested. Thank you so much for your time.

    Warm regards,

    Brydie Walker Bain
