The Lie Tree
The lie tree is a good book but it takes a while to get in to at first. At the beginning, it gets quite confusing because you do not know who the characters are. After a while, you get into it when the real action starts. It is adventurous with element of real danger but at first you just have to persevere to get to the exciting parts. When Faith's dad mysteriously dies, it is seen as suicide but Faith is convinced it was murder. Was it murder? If so, who did it? Why? Was it linked to his mysterious behaviour recently with a certain scientific project? You need to read the book to find out. It is a spectacular read. What an interesting tree! What makes it so special? Why is it called the lie tree? Find out in this extraordinary book! You must read it!

Five children on the western front
This is one of the best books I have ever read! It was hilariously funny and the adventures are extremely engaging. It has some heart-breaking moments during times of tragedy but overall the happy times out weigh the sad times. The best character is the Psammead : the only remaining sand fairy and desert god. He has the ability to grant wishes, however when he starts to lose this ability, he is forced to repent for all of the crimes he has committed in his past. He has lived in Ancient Egypt but fled to Ancient Rome to hide from all of the angry citizens from his long lost kingdom. I would definitely recommend this book and it should win the Carnegie award for sure.

the ghosts of heaven.
This book seems very good so far. At the beginning there is lots of facts about how the world was formed, which I found interesting ! It is split into 4 parts and the first part is set out as a poem. This book is recommended for reader that can understand hard poems because it is quite complicated. Overall it is good so far.

The lie tree was interesting but it contained too many characters which made the book confusing , I honestly think if they reduced the amount of characters It could be a decent read but they complicated it.

This book is amazing it has all the emotive language a good book should have, so far Grace and Tippi and conjoined twins and all their life they have been home-schooled , both parents thought it was time that they embarked on a journey of a lifetime, to go to proper school. This book should win the award because of the emotion coming off every word from the page
