Chains by Laurie Halse Anderson
At the end of Carnegie our favourite book has been chains because it highlights the horrible reallity of slavery in New york in the late 1700. It is about a thirteen year old girl called Isobel who has been sold to a wicked rich couple , Mr and Mrs Lockton,to become their slaves. Mrs Lockton is particualy nasty and brands Isobel with an I on her cheek.

Fever Crumb by Phillip Reeve
I really liked this book , especially the setting which is 250 years ahead of time when all current technology has been destroyed and they have had to start again from scratch. Fever Crumb is a 14 year old engineer found abondaned in a wicker basket near the marshes. The archeaologist Kit Solent offers her a place at Ludgate House were the head of the London leaders, Auric Godshawk, once lived. I really liked the bit were Fever is being chased by the Skinners Guild, Ted Swiney, who believe she is a Scriven and is trying to kill her. The language is very descriptive and I knew exactly what was going on even though it was quite confusing. If I were to make a criticism, it would be that at the start it is quite hard to follow.
