Aware and responsible

Over the last week I have been reading the ‘Divergent‘ series of novels by Veronica Roth. My thirteen year old daughter is a fan of the books so I’ve been wanting to read them to keep slightly in touch with her world. They are easy reading and have a reasonably absorbing story so it was […]
