After the Fire by Will Hill
After the Fire is a story set in the modern world about a teenage girl who has been brought up in a religious cult. She has always believed and loved everything in the legion yet now she is starting to doubt whether it is true. 'After the Fire' she is taken into a therapy center and since from very young she had been told never to trust 'outsiders' this became very hard as she had to go against what she had believed for so long. At times the story does get quite confusing. However, everything makes sense in the end. This is definitely a book worth reading. By Naomi and Sasha

my review of saint death
Marcus sedgewick is really on to something here with his new book "saint death". previously on another review it said that sedwick's new book is a fast pace book to which i completely agree. it is thrilling. set on the Mexican american border danger lurks all around and for our protagonist Arturo it is a really dangerous place with people being beaten and kidnapped this is not the place to lead any sort of life. however sedgewick placing him in this type of scenario really adds to the pacy and the thrilling plot of "saint death" this book is really one to watch. i haven't read one of his books before but with this book i could see myself reading another. if you want a really thrilling read and a good book then i definitely think that sedgewick's new book "saint death" is the one for you.
