Review by: Alison Clifford on Sep. 17, 2016 :
Steele Secrets is a riveting story about a girls fight to save an old cemetery. The plot starts with a small, but significant incident, and continues to build throughout the book to a dramatic conclusion. Mary is relatable as the main character, and the author tells the story in such a way that I found myself drawn into it and sharing it with the characters.
As an Australian I found the historical aspect of the story fascinating. It made me compare the things I read in the story to our own history and treatment of the aboriginal people, and raises issue that most around the world can relate to in some way. It’s not heavy, but explores attitudes towards race and history in a sensitive and easy to understand manner.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it to readers of all ages.
