After the fire is a dystopian novel which is very intense and gripping. It is based on a group of extremely religious people who have all been brought together. They are all living in a large restricted area as that is want Father John wants.

ROOK by Zain
Rook is my favorite book so far and it is full of excitement and it is never boring and there is always something exciting happening. I like this book because it is a story that is likely to happen in real life and is very close to reality. I also liked this book because he main character starts off as a not so popular kid and at the end he is very well known.

SAINT DEATH by Zain and Eduardo
Saint Death is a book that has intense parts. This book is set in one of the most dangerous places in Mexico, Juarez. In my opinion saint death is confusing. I would recommend this book to people that like action and adventure books such as Alex Rider. This book talks about how Arturo gets the money he needs to save his friend?s life, Faustino. Arturo goes into this adventure to get the money to save his friend?s life, as he goes to this place to play a game called calavera (a card game), but Arturo don?t know what to do.

Where the world ends had a good story-line however it was repetitive at times. We found that this book was quite slow and hard to to keep up with. We also found it hard to read as as it was set in 1727 and the vocabulary was hard to understand.

RELEASE by Sofia and Regina
In our opinion, we think that release was not an engaging book to read because there was nothing there to grip you and keep you reading. We think that the book has uncomfortable themes. The structure of the text makes it confusing. There was only one part of the story we found intriguing. We say that it would be suitable for readers over 12 and likes Patrick Ness. It is an adventure and thriller.

THE HATE U GIVE by Julliete and Jessie
?What?s the point of having a voice if you're gonna be silent?? We think that the hate u give is an incredible book with lots going on. Out of all the books in the carnegie books this one is definitely our favourite! This book is good because it is intreginly close to real life , the book sympathizes with you and shows quite a lot of real life problems that we have. I think this is a good book because it uses a lot of English techniques such as: language, cliff hanging, mysterious scenes and a very powerful quote in the blurb. "We would rate this book it gives you a clear perspective of the story and gives you an experience as if you are in the story. I think that the characters are good at representing life

The hate u give is a very intense and gripping book. This is because it refers to real life events that are taking place now. The killing of young, black, american men by white police men. However that main thing that pushes this book to being so good is the fact of the wait that they have to go through only to hear that that police man is not prosecuted for the crime he committed.

BEYOND THE BRIGHT SEA by Tawa, Abi and Mahima
I think beyond the bright sea is aimed at children aged between 7 to 12. Beyond the Bright sea is about a little girl named Crow living with Osh. Osh found Crow as a newborn washed up on the Island he lives on. Osh and Miss Maggie,the neighbour who takes care of Crow sometimes, is the only family Crow has ever known. I would recommend this book to readers who enjoy historic and not too intense books. I think the first chapter of the book should be read because it is laid out in a mysterious way. Overall we all (Mahima, Abi and Tawa) think that Beyond the bright sea was a book that we all didn't enjoy as it was not very intriguing however there were some times where you did feel for the characters.
