I started reading ‘The Speed Of Lightning’ whilst on a long train journey. It was very absorbing and l couldn’t put it down till l had finished it. The characters were well drawn and very relatable. My grandchildren who are similar ages to William and Lizzie are looking forward to reading the book so we can discuss it together in the near future.
