Review: True Escape Stories (Usborne Paperbacks)

User Review  - Goodreads

This book is the ideal book to read in blocks. I brought it to work and was able to read approximately 1 story per break which was ideal. Each story was very different and I never felt like I was reading the same story over and over. A short yet interesting and varied read. 4/5 Read full review
