The Cool Breeze of Spring – Rebecca’s diary – C. Attleya

When 12-year-old Rebecca Riverton finds herself alone in the world, she decides to take her horse Flock and ride east in the hope of finding other survivors like her.
She finds a new home and new friends at Hever Castle, where she forges a new future for herself as she gains the respect of both humans and aliens.
Rebecca’s diary tells the story of ‘A new beginning’ through the eyes of a 12-year-old. She joins Caila’s group (see A new beginning) about halfway through the main story, and from that moment the two stories are interlinked. It is funny and tear jerking at the same time. As Rebecca is only 12 years old, she is not made partial to everything that happens in the main book, but cognisant and clever as she is, she has her own explanation for what she’s experiencing. She writes it down it her diary, uncomplicating everything that happens around her.
