I was still teaching when I wrote this, and I’m indebted to my excellent students, who reminded me what it’s like to be a 12 year old girl. I had such fun pretending to be that age again, and I’m seriously considering writing a follow-up when I can find the time.

    • Hi Rachel, lovely to hear from you, and I really enjoyed my visit to St Rynaghs. I’m afraid I’m probably the worst person in the world to give tips on being a faster reader, because I’m REALLY slow myself! I wish I could read faster because there are so many books I’m dying to read, but I think you’re either a fast reader or a slow one, and there isn’t much you can do about it, apart from try to find more time to read! I don’t think this will be much help to you, but happy reading anyway, no matter how fast or slow you are! Roisin xx
