Great Yarmouth VA High School
GREAT YARMOUTH, NORFOLK

By Super Dinosaur John and Jeta
We read In Darkness, a briliantly described book that talks about a fictional character and a real person who are somehow 'linked through time'. In Darkness speaks of vodou magic, historical events, such as the haiti earthquake that took place a few years ago, and hopeless situations. We both really liked this book a lot (especially the ending).

Books or Films
I prefer books to film because they are usually longer and the story lines are normally more imaginative and better though out.

I like reading books, they're very interesting. My favourite books are Skulduggery Pleasant by Derek Landy and Heroes by Robert Cormier. I am about to start reading Midwinterblood. I hope it will be as good as Ione says it is. By Harry.

Reading Midwinterblood by Ione
I started to read Midwinterblood and I couldn't put it down. It was very gripping and original. I loved how everything was linked by either large, noticeable things or small, personal characteristics. The storyline was very inventive and I was dying to know what happened next, so much that I finished it in one day and am going to buy it for myself.

Update
We are all trying to speed up reading as some of us haven't even finished one book yet! Some people are finding their chosen books hard to get into and have given up. Revolver seems to be the most popular choice at the moment as it is so short and the hardback cover version we have is very visually appealing. We will keep you updated. I hope everyone will get reading over half term...

Chains???
I started reading Chains when we started book club and most of us thought it would be really good. After reading it, I didn't find it as good as I thought it would be. I would still recommend it but not compared to other books.

Chains ???

Chains by Laurie Halse Anderson
I have only started reading Chains but I am already loving it! It's really descriptive and is easy to create an image in your head. By the way the authors wrote it I can really understand what "Isabel", who is one of the main characters in the novel, is thinking and how hard her life has been looking after the sister Ruth.

Choosing "Chains"
My name is Ellie and I have chose to read the book Chains. It appeals to me most beacause it sounds the most interesting. Most of the group have also chosen this book. I have read a bit of the story and a young girl and her sister are to carry a coffin. One of the girls, Isabel, believes in ghosts.
