Saint Death by Jack
This is a complete page-turner! It tells of Arturo, a boy living in Mexico, a war zone of gangs, drugs, and violence. Although he wants nothing to do with it, and lives his life saving up to escape into America, he is dragged in when his childhood friend, Faustino turns up, asking for $1000. With only 24 hours, Arturo must find a way to save him... I loved the symbolism and twists that hid at every corner! An amazing story. An amazing book. Read it. Read it now.

Thornhill Review by Zarah
Hi! I finished this uniquely fantastic book Thornhill about a week ago now and the reason I say unique is because it is told in just pictures and diary entries. I have read books using dual perspective before but none quite as touching and moving as this. It is interesting to see how the two girls in the book are connected and almost watch from the side the friendship form. I would definitely recommend this book, but to readers who do not find the subjects of young carers and foster homing upsetting. Otherwise, this book is perfect for teenagers, being a dark and sad book overall.

This is a childish story which cause it's so childish that it is creepy and you think something dark is going to happen when you are reading this book but even so it has an original idea and a good plot to it I rate this 10/10 and hope you enjoy the book.

The Hate U Give
The Hate U Give is a very moving book. its about a young girl, Starr, who was the only witness of her best friends fatal shooting. Khalil was an unnarmed black kid who was unjustly shot. Starr has to try and get justice for khalil, and as always, all her actions have concequences. This book will make you experience every emotion all at once

After The Fire
After the fire is a compelling story about a girl that has just been released from a lifetime of not knowing she was a captive in her own home. Told in a clear cut narrative of Before and After, it describes a survivor trying desperately to recover from her own trauma, whilst simultaneously feeling weighted down by guilt and the responsibility for her younger Brothers and sisters. If you enjoy reading about cults, responsibility and trauma, then this is the book for you. Personally, I love this story for the amazing portrayal of the process going on behind our main characters head. It beautifully conveys the self hatred fueled thoughts that have been instilled in her from childhood warring against her knowledge that, yes, she does deserve to have a recovery arc. With great characterisation, heart warming recovery stories and harsh reality all meshing together into one book, this is definitely a must read. Absolutely loved it.
