Highlands School
London,

Still going.....
I'm still reading the books even though the quiz has already happened. I just read Roof Toppers and like everyone else who has read it, I loved it. I really liked Charles's character, and Sophie as well. It was really well written and I couldn't stop reading it. If you haven't already, READ THIS BOOK! George

Ghost Hawk.....
Everyone, if you haven't read Ghost Hawk, it doesn't really matter as I don't think it was a great book. The first bit was quite good, and towards the end was okay, but the middle was actually quite boring and the story wasn't getting anywhere. It's probably my least favourite out of the Carnegie books... George

Liar & Spy
Surprisingly, I actually enjoyed this book, because I wasn't sure at first but as it went on the story line developed and improved, and it was a great read! Loved the characters names,like Safer, Pigeon and Candy, and what they got up to! I would recommend reading this book. George

The Wall
This story really wanted to make me scream. The storyline is amazing and is just so emotional. It all seems so doom and gloom to start with and really only at the very end I started to feel better. Its about friendship and hope which I find really nice. The story is so mysterious and is a great ending that I love which is so inspirational. READ IT! Charlotte :)

The childs elephant
This story is beautiful and nearly made me cry. It is about a boy called Bat finding a friend he will never forget. He lets his friend go when the time is right and this shows how much he cared. In the second part of the book disaster strikes and as Bat learns why he has been taken, will he have to betray his most loyal friend? Throughout the book it is moving and really clever. But when push comes to shove will Bats friend be there? READ IT! Charlotte :)

Rooftoppers
Read this book in a day its great. I hated all the bigwig jobsworths who thought they were in charge. It is a beautiful story about friendship, exploration and belief in what you trust most. As Sophie explores the rooftops of Paris will she find what her heart has always been looking for? READ IT! Charlotte :)

Liar and spy
This story is one of those typical American underdog stories. It takes us through such mystery and adventure. It really is about accepting the truth and through this story Georges realises he has to stop pretending. So with the help of his new friend safer how will his life turn around? This book is great and is probably one of the not so dark stories. Loved it. READ IT! Charlotte :)

Roof Toppers
I loved Roof Toppers!!! It started off with a girl called Sophie and her carer Charles. They were normal(ish) people who lived in a normal(ish) house but after a situation occurred they decided to go search for Sophie's mum in Paris. After hearing her mother's music on a rooftop, Sophie goes in search of her running across rooftops as a Roof Topper. It was descriptive, imaginative and left me spellbound from the first page. It left me wanting more!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Kisses, Zoe

Whats Up Guys?! 2
Hi! so i have recently read 'ALL THE TRUTH THAT'S IN ME' Honestly, i loved it sooooooooo much that i bought it from amazon! I know i said that i would NEVER give any spoilers but i'm gonna have to since i found it just amazing. It made me cry in English class due to the pure sadness of the relationship between the mother and the daughter (Judith) also i blushed like LOADS between the relationship between Judith and Lucas. I think every girl should find their Lucas. Please please pleeeaaassseee read this book if you fancy a good book! I couldn't put it down! Next Book: Roof Toppers byebyebyebyebyebyebyebyebyebyebye! from Ge_cat

Rooftoppers
This book is quirky and wonderful with brilliant writing and use of vocabulary. Magical descriptions of Paris, London and the Rooftoppers but left me thinking there should have been a bit more to the story...

The Bunker Diaires
This book terrified me much more than I ever imagined. The Hunger Games has nothing on this! I really liked the voice of the main character, he seemed like a real teenager and it was believable that he had lived on the streets but for me this was much more terrifying than any of Stephen King's horror novels!

Liar and Spy
Breath taking! This book is simply a masterpiece, with humor, excitement but also originality. I am finding it ingenious in the that the author has linked Georges' spy life with his human life. for example Mr X being his neighbour- it is so interesting. This book should be up there as one of the best as i highly recommend it to anyone who, likes a ,mixture of action and comedy but a touch of fear!!! Truly phenomenal...

Bunker Diary
I love the Bunker Diary, it's not at all what i had expected, but it's a real page turner and I really enjoyed it. It actually got quite scary at some points, but it was a great book. The only thing I would say is that it didn't really have a clear ending, but apart from that, it was great! George

I really love this book; it's so interesting and it has an excellent story line. The story is told by many characters' viewpoints so you know about each person's opinions. I was completely hooked from the first page and I definitely recommend it to anyone. Abena

Blood Family
This book is great it's written in a style where you get every ones opinions on the events. It let me see all the events and by writing this way it lets you connect with the characters. I found it very emotional and because these things happen in real life i found it really harsh and real. I didn't have a dull moment reading it and there were so many feelings and so much sympathy and empathy towards the characters. I especially liked him changing in age so when bad things start to happen you feel so attached and sadder about the events . READ IT!!! Byesies Charlotte :) sees yas
