The Debate Continues
Just a few more hours to go before the winner is announced, so, we're discussing the books that we think will win, and getting ready to vote. At the moment we all ( well all but one) agree it will be The Hate U Give (T.H.U.G)! Wed Wabbit is also a contender in some eyes, as is Release. Wed Wabbit seems to be winning the vote(s) for it's great humour, even it's a bit sad at certain points,and most of us love the Wimbley Woos. Although our votes are divided, we all agree that all of the books give powerful messages about inequality, injustice and morals. Also, we can relate to the main characters, and some of problems they face,based on our own experiences. So far these are our votes: 1. The Hate U Give 2.Release 3. Wed Wabbit We think all the books are brilliant, but these are our top3!

Where the World Ends
Every event happens in the right order in the story, so nothing confusing about the plot. The author highlighted gender inequality in a way that readers can really feel for Quilliam because although he really has to act cool in front of the other boys, in truth he wants to show care and affection to Murdina.

After the fire
The intense, dramatic story opening was a real page turner. The main character Moonbeam really grew as the plot developed. A rollercoaster of scared, sad, scared, sad, happy mid-way, fearful of Luke, angry, but content at the end of the story; the ending was satisfactory one.

Wed Wabbit
Fidge made a huge mistake when she threw the toy rabbit into the road, and having to learn to become more tolerant and generally just growing up was a tough lesson for to learn. The characters were convincing, especially Fidge, the use of imagination made the plot brilliant and very humorous. The Wibbily Woos were wewy welatable because some people believe they are great at everything, but they're not, everyone has weaknesses.

The main characters were believable, teenagers can really relate to them. The author dealt with the issue of a first crush really well, family problems and BULLYING. Kenny has special needs and it gives the reader an insight into his the difficulties and challenges he has with everyday life.

The great book debate
Our debates have covered some BIG issues portrayed in the titles; Saint Death: Gangs, poverty and migration; the way it was written really hooks the reader, it gets a five star rating, and the characters who are young teens are extremely convincing, they get five stars. The plot is realistic ... we even believed the horror of the words, we felt the characters' pain.
