Julie Traynor P1 on Wonder by R.J. Palacio
Wonder is a fantastic book that can change minds and hearts. The book is about a young boy named August who has a deformed face. In the novel we see different sides to the story. Via, Augusts sister, is always by his side and stands up for him whenever she can. But when she and August start school they’re both thrown in to new complications. At first August is an outcast the “weird” kid in school, but he quickly makes friends with a young girl named summer, and a boy called Jack. Who stick by his side against the stares, the rumours and the name calling. The book has its ups and it’s downs but by the time you are finished you see the world differently and you see people differently. This book teaches us compassion, understanding and of course, that it is good to poke fun at yourself sometimes.
I give this book 5 stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
RUNNERS UP 😊🌟😊🌟😊
Sarah Hyland L2 on A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness
This book is a fantastic and heartbreaking story about a boy who has nightmares every night ever since his mother fell ill, and the treatments don’t seem to be working. But then he meets a monster in his dreams who tells him stories, and the monster wants the most dangerous thing of all, it wants the truth. This book will break your heart once you read it.
I give this book five stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Gráinne Butler C2 on The lord of the Flies by William Golding
This book is amazing, it’s about how boys land on a island and have to try and survive without adults. How will they get food? How will they stay warm? I could not believe at the end how the boys could turn into savages and it shocked me how the boys acted towards each other. I really loved the book. I would give it five stars
Mia Kenny P2 on The Outsiders
This book is about the main character Ponyboy, who tells us the difference between the Socs and the Greasers. The Socs have advantages in society like education, money and a stable home. I like the characters in The Outsiders, the one I like most is Darry because he doesn’t just of himself. He has given up college and works two jobs to keep the family together. this shows he is a very caring person.
4 out of five stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟
Well done everyone and thanks for entering!
