Code Name Verity
I started Code Name Verity last week and even though I have not read much of it I am really interested by the book because there is quite a few parts of the book that are quite interesting like a girl fighting in world war two. So far I would definitely recommend this to everyone! Libby Messenbird 7H

In Darkness
At the moment I am finding this book very interesting and enjoyable. Even though the book has a negative atmosphere, it is easy to get hooked. The first page captured me the most as it sounded quite mysterious and mature, suitable for my age group. I am looking forward to continuing with this book and can't wait to find out what is in store. Heather Phillips 10G

Wonder
This book is about August who was born with a cranial defect and his loving family. Auggie goes to school and the book shows us how awful people can be when someone is different, but it also shows how friendships develop despite the odds. It was a very emotional book and I think a very strong contender to win. I reallly enjoyed reading it. Mrs. Wooldridge

Midwinterblood
I have finally finished Midwinterblood and it's great. From start to finish it was brilliant- and at the end it finally explains EVERYTHING!! It's a must read book and you will not be able to put it down- even my mum is reading it and enjoying it. This book has a really good chance of winning: the other books better watch out for MIDWINTERBLOOD!! By sophie Keeble 7G

The weight of water
I am finding this book quite interesting as instead of having numbers as chapters it just has headings. This book is laid out as a poem but it actually is not. I think this book could win.

The Weight of Water
This is the story written like a poem of Kasienka and her mother who come from Poland to find Tata, Kasienka's father. It tells how Kasienka is bullied at school by a girl named Clair and how Kasienka finds friendship with William through swimming and how Kasienka comes alive when swimming and goes on to beat Clair. It also tells of Kasienka's relationship with her mother and once found again, her father. It was a really quick book to read and I didn't want to put it down until I had finished it. Mrs. Wooldridge

A Boy and a Bear in a Boat
Well, I finished the book and although I quite enjoyed it, it didn't really go anywhere and the ending was very disappointing as the adventure never ended! I don't think this one will be a winner. Mrs. Wooldridge

'Greyhound of a Girl'
I actually really enjoyed this book. I wasn't sure I would but it turned out to be a captivating read. I found the speech a little difficult sometimes - the way the characters spoke was slightly different to the way I do and so I found it made my reading a bit disjointed. I really liked the way some chapters are told from different characters' points of view so you got a sense of their background and their impact on the story. Not sure it would be the winner, but I've yet to read the other books. Mrs Robb

A Boy and a Bear in a Boat
A rather odd story which I am part way through. The title says it all, so I just want to find out what happens. Mrs Wooldridge

Greyhound of a Girl
I've not long finished this book and I thoroughly enjoyed it, though it did take me a little while to understand what was happening. I really liked Mary and thought she dealt with her rather strange situation very well. A rather novel way of finding out about your family's past. Mrs Wooldridge

'Greyhound of a Girl'
I've just started reading this book and the the first couple of chapters are really just setting the scene and introducing the characters. I quite like the main character at the moment - she seems quite feisty and independent - and she's just met someone who could prove to be very interesting. We'll see how she gets on! Mrs Robb
