I really like the cover of Trash because the colours are really bright and I really like how the word trash is made up of trash flying in the air.If you look really close at the title you can see bits of rubbish!

Can you guess what this book is? Well the book on everybody's mind is Annabel Pitcher's My Sister Lives On The Mantelpiece. The story is gripping but I reckon that some people have taken it the wrong way. We had the chance to talk to her and she explained why she wrote a book about terroism. She watched a film and was pulled in by this. She is not herself a racist, but a great author. She shows this by displaying a characters feelings towards people and to do this when she is not racist, it is amazing. She was very nice when she talked to us and was very nice. WE LOVE ANNABEL! Watch out for ehr next book coming out in November ... Ketchup Cloud. (glances at the page and is curious at the name!)

Do You Enjoy Reading
We had a think about whether we really enjoyed reading or not and there was only one answer. YES. We all love reading and we are taking part in the carneigie medal award to come together reading as many different types of books as possible, anylising them and just generally enjoying them.
