The Weight of Water
The Weight of Water was a good book, but the problems began mounting up. There were so many problems that it was rather wearisome, you could almost say, "Look, there's a problem, and over there, another problem, and don't forget that problem over there." Johnathan Wilson

A Boy and Bear in a Boat
A very fun and nice tale, with some rather funny consequences of a sandwich, a blue map and a very tall rock. Very entertaining book, with lots of unforeseeable anomalies. Johnathan Wilson

Code Name Verity
I really enjoyed reading Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein, it was a page turner from start to finish. The protagonist, is captured by the Gestapo in France, interrogated and tortured. She narrates the first part of the book in third person even though she is writing about herself. The twist in the story at the end as we find out the fate of her best friend Maddie, the pilot that flew her into France, keeps our hopes of her escape alive and you can’t help but like the two courageous girls. This was a great book. Mrs. Hansen

Finding unexpected joy at unexpected places
A Boy and a Bear in a boat is a very kind and touching story by Dave Shelton. It is about a boy and a bear getting lost at sea, and how friendship could overcome the challenges and meaningless of being lost. This really gives a new light on finding hope when everything is lost, and is very funny at some parts too. An exemplary read and a quick one too, with interesting pictures that could paint a portrait as good as the words inside the book. Issac Fung

Maggot Moon
Although this was a horrific story at times, full of gruesome and shocking episodes, it left me feeling full of hope for humanity - it was very much a tale of friendship and courage no matter how small you are or may feel. I found this book a real page-turner and was moved by many of the characters' courage which was fuelled by love and the need for personal freedom - two things that make us human. Ms Tandy

A new perspective on Death
Greyhound of a Girl and Maggot Moon certainly put a new perspective on death, and really make you think about what would be worth to die for, and what would happen after death. Certainly a very interesting affect to the readers.
