Review: Minty by Christina Banach


Fourteen-year-old twins Minty and Jess are inseparable. Maybe they bicker now and then, even crave a bit of space once in a while. But they have a connection. Unbreakable. Steadfast. Nothing can tear them apart. Until a family trip to the coast puts their bond in jeopardy. As Minty tries to rescue her dog from drowning she ends up fighting for her life. Will Minty survive? If she doesn’t, how will Jess cope without her? Only the stormy sea has the answer.

My Review
I completely and utterly fell in love with this book. It was read in a matter of hours as I just couldn't put it down. Both heartfelt and humorous, this is one of those stories that will stay with me for, well probably for years! Minty is such a loveable character, as is her dear sister and their bond is typical of twins (or so I understand). Nothing can pull these girls apart and there lies the problem.
Gosh it's so difficult to write a review of this book without giving the game away!
Let's just say that if you love stories with depth, humour and real life relationships, then you'll love this. It has it all and I really hope that Christina writes more soon because she has become my 'One to Watch' this year.
