A Greyhound Of A Girl
This book by Roddy Doyle is about a girl called Mary, grandma, and Scarlet (Mary's mother). Mary's great-grandmother had died in the past coming back wanting to see how her children grew up. Mary sees her in the street but doesn't know who she is. She gets home after the encounter and visits her 'granny' who later in the book passes away. Her great-grandmother revisits as a spirit OR a greyhound. To Mary life go's downhill as her best friend leaves and her grandma dies what else could possibly go wrong? This book shows great emotions to make the reader feel sympathy for Mary (like a tearjerker). This book shows Mary's life from HER point of view. Personally i would give this book 8/10 for a good emotional setting and for making me cry... but honestly i would recommend this book to many people and i would love to read it again! :) By Regan Balder Harris

Noah Barleywater Run's Away
Noah Barleywater runs away is a very interesting book. I have never quite read anything like it before. It is the most interesting book I have ever read. It is about a young boy who is an only child, whose about to lose someone very close to him soon. The young boy Noah sets out on adventure, where he thinks he will see more of the world but instead he is taken on a journey where he learns a lot more about himself and his loved ones. Along the journey he makes new friends, for example; the talking donkey, the dachshund and many more. In the end he gets what he wants and what he rightfully deserves. In my opinion this book is amazing and I would recommend it to everyone. By Jaspreet Samra
