The Blood Stone by Jamila Gavin
I am reading books by the authors who will speak at the IBBY Congress in London. I have already talked about one other book by Jamila Gavin but I must say The Blood Stone is even better. I think I almost held my breath through the whole book feeling so anxious for Flippo and all the danger he faces. Jamila Gavin gives you such rich insights in to the smells, scenes and tastes of all the exotic places we journey to in this book. The words on the front cover are so true this is "a fabulous epic novel". I recommend you grab this one quickly you will not be disappointed.
