Write a review on any of Sarah’s books by next Monday the 20th of November. Email it to librarian@olschool.ie (do not send it to the library Google Classroom mail as that is not an email address and I won’t receive it)

Remember that a review is not just your account of what happens in the book, and it should never contain spoilers! Write about your opinion on the themes and the characters and what you enjoyed or disliked. Would you recommend the book, and who would you recommend it to?

Below is a sample book review template to help you structure your review. You do not need to use this if you don’t want to.

Now there is a new group arising who also believe that Adam is the chosen one and will do whatever it takes to get Adam to lead them to the Golden Planet. these people believe that earth is covered with many monsters and demons and want to escape this darkness by travelling to a new dimension. They believe that through killing themselves and others they want to bring with them that they will travel to this new world. Attempting to escape this madness, Adam must face his greatest fears while going on an adventure to save hundreds of people from their deepest nightmares.”
