The fail of a winning book
Why...Why..Why? : ( This book didnt win it failed miserably! What happened to between shades of gray. I mean... appalling. Being fair though this book was ok and i kinda enjoyed it because it was a bit emotional.

A Monster Calls
It is a tragedy that this AWFUL book won because it is toooooooooooo depressing and very unsetling for children with parents with cancer. Many children who liked this book probably have never experienced the loss of a parent and this makes the decision very unfair. The judges should have concidered other opinions about the book not just the positive ones.

A Monster Calls
I didn't read this book but others in my group were not as in favour of this story as much as other books. I can't give a specific opinion due to not reading it but based on the opinions of my book group, the general opinion is that another book would have been better.

A Monster Calls!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
I did quite like this book but not enoughth for it to win,because it was just a bit to sad for me. I think that 'the midnight zoo' should have won. So I think it should be... 'A Henry Calls WHAT!!'

between shades of grey
This book is the gripping story of Lina, who is taken by the russian secret police to lithuania to a concentration camp because her family are apparently criminals. she meets a boy called Andrius who helps starving people, his mother becomes a prostitute to save her son. I would recommend it to older readers as chapters are shocking and violent!!!!!

My name is mina
I don't like this book because it went on and on and didnt ever begin so in the end i skipped half of it and went to the end.

Everybody Jam
This book is set in the Austrailan outback from the point of view of Danny, a 13 year old boy who's brother is dead and sister pregnant. He rehabilitates a camel called Buzz, and prepares for the 'Muster', a cattle event where you herd as many cows as you can. This book is slow to begin with and doesn't grab the reader much till the end. I would still reccomend it, though.

My Name Is Mina
My Name Is Mina is an easy to read book with lots of randomness i love this book and can not put it down EVER it is an awsome book with a great charicter that you could relate to its a wierd and wonderful book that you MUST MUST MUST READ. skyxx

The Midnight Zoo
The midnight zoo is intriguing as it is initially from the viewpoint of night. Night shadows over the children-Andrej and Tomas-as they get to know and care for the talking zoo animals in the midst of a war. I found this book interesting and well written.

everybody jam
this book i thought was good in its own way but i didnt like it because its not one of those thing i would read. but it is a good book.
Posted on: 29 May 2012



Between Shades Of Gray
I like this book because it dosen't go on and on like My Sister Lives On The Mantlepiece. I think this could be the winner!
Posted on: 29 May 2012



TRASH
Trash rushes into things and it is confusing so i dont think its a very good book! sky x
Posted on: 29 May 2012



My Name is Mina
I am getting bored of this because nothing is happening although I have read it before so it could be because of that.
Posted on: 29 May 2012



Small Change For Stuart
I like this book because it is a good mystery book that has lots of clues in it. Some obvious and others hiddeen
Posted on: 29 May 2012



Everybody jam
This book is ok. I would give it 7 out of 10. I enjoyed it because it had a interesting story line and is a personal view of what is happening. I dislike this book because it goes on a bit and you sometimes get bored.
Posted on: 29 May 2012



Between Shades of Gray
This book is sad. The Soviets are desribed really well and i can imagine them in my mind when they are described.
Posted on: 22 May 2012



my name is mina
This book is very weird and i like books that are random and was a very good read. But everybody else says that the other books are amazing so i will wait till i have read the other books to choose!!!

My Name Is Mina
I like this book because I can easily relate to it. I find that these books are more realistic. By Jenni :)
Posted on: 22 May 2012



Between Shades Of Gray
This book is great as it uses small chapters and is an true amazing story. I would reccomend this book although it is sad so if you don't like sad books this might not be for you!

My Name Is Mina
This book is very interesting because Mina asks questions to herself that really make you think. She has just done SATS like we did last year but now has home schooling. I have now realised that there is not going to be a 'main event' as such but she is just going to explain what is happening in her life. By Jenni :)
Posted on: 18 May 2012



My Name Is Mina
There is a lot of strange things happening including many people on her road dieing. She also tries to escape from school to chase a dog! I still want to read on though! By Jenni :)
Posted on: 15 May 2012



Everybody Jam
I like this book as it really makes you think that it is real. I also like how the author named the book and that it links to something so simple and small in the whole book.

A moster calls
its an awsome book that you can imagen alot of things in it like a terrifying monster i think everyone should at least have a try at reading it. sky .

A Monster Calls
This book is good but not as good as between shades of gray.
Posted on: 15 May 2012



My Sister Lives On The Matlepiece
I have read half way through this book but i have got bored. I think this book is rubbish!!!!!
Posted on: 15 May 2012

everybody jam
I like this book but I think that it is aimed for older childeren as it has some swear words in it.
Posted on: 03 May 2012



between shades of gray
I have just finished this book and would definitely recommend it. It is very sad and emotional. It has a strong story and is very powerful. It is one of the only books i have read that i have all the way through and wanted to constantly read on and been interested in. I loved this book even though it made me a bit teary sometimes.
Posted on: 01 May 2012



Between
I recommend this book to EVERYONE.

My sister lives on the mantlepiece
I have read upto chapter 4 at the moment and im loving every single chapter. I have just found out that jamies sister was killed by muslims, and if that wasn't hard enough he know has to sit next to one in class! Good so far, Heather Higgs :)
Posted on: 29 Apr 2012



My Name is Mina
Mina certainly has a very vivid imagination but she's the girl that doesn't fit in and is not liked by her classmates. Her dad died when she was younger so her life's a bit weird and coping with death isn't all that easy. A great read so far though! By Jenni :)

The Midnight Zoo
I finished the book today a loved it! As much as I loved I still think that it could be improved, simply by using a thesaurus.
Posted on: 26 Apr 2012



a monster calles
i love this book it has a lot of personaforcation and simalies and its a very intresting book sky clarke xx
Posted on: 25 Apr 2012



between shades of gray
This book is really emotional and for me i have to take breaks between every 5 chapters. Im not sure if that is good or not.
Posted on: 25 Apr 2012



The Midnight Zoo
The next few chapters are very good although some bits are quite confusing; in addition I think that they use the word ‘said’ far too much. But I still like this book and think that it stands a chance of being the winner.
Posted on: 25 Apr 2012



Between Shades of Gray
This book is tense and exiting from the beginning. It is one of the few books I have read that has been exiting from the start.
Posted on: 24 Apr 2012



the midnight zoo
The first few pages of this book are very mysterious, and it goes into to a lot of descriptive depth.
Posted on: 24 Apr 2012



My sister lives on the mantelpiece
I think this book is a intresting, moving plus a funny book. I carn't wait to read on!! By Heather Higgs XD
Posted on: 24 Apr 2012



My sister lives on the mantle peice
i dont like this book because its not very serious and im not really intrested in the book cause its really grown up !!!!! by sky clarke
Posted on: 24 Apr 2012



My Name is Mina
It is interesting so far although nothing has really happened yet except Mina has introduced herself. I want to read on because from reading the blurb, it sounds as if something very exciting and interesing is going to happen. By Jenni :)

Trash
This book is a rather addictive book and very detailed in what the author descibes even on the first page!!!
