By Friday? Zounds!

I haven't read it myself yet, but people I respect are saying good things
about Justin D'Ath's Shaedow Master. James Valentine's Jump Man books 1 and
2 are fun but very well-written and intelligent science fiction.

Why doesn't she contact the good people at The Little Bookroom in Elizabeth
St? They are a specialist children's bookshop and will have advice on good
science fiction and fantasy for this age.
