Inside The Notebook

Abbey was shy…

Not just scared to talk in front of the class shy but wandering the school yard alone shy. 

When her favourite Grandma gives her a unique notebook on her 10th birthday Abbey’s life is changed forever.

Inside the Notebook is a fantastical journey for all readers that emphasises the importance of having your own voice and for believing in yourself always.

*Age recommended 8 to 12 years old

"A transformational story about finding your voice and the power of determination... A great read with unique characters and a narrator who must find her bravery." Zachary, Indie Book reviewer
