James reviews Nation By Terry Pratchet
Another great book by Terry Pratchet one of the resons I love reading Terry Pratchets books is that he creates his own world with his own logic and science and makes you beleve in it like it could be real wheather its a disc world or a nation he all ways dose it. Another thing is in this book the nation is almost destroyed and Mau creats a friendship with the trouserman girl and the world of posh and poor clashes. if I wrote everything I liked about this book it would take forever so its just best to say 5/5 and almost a sure winner!

Katie reviews Rowan the Strange
Katie thought that this book was boring and slow as the begginning was wierd.
However, Miss Restall our school librarian and the person that runs this group said that this book was exciting and it was talking about an issue that people at that time didn't understand which made it better to read.
Miss Restall rates it 5*/5*
Katie rates it 3*/5*

Review 1 by Adam Fenby ( the vanishing of Katrina Linden by Helen Grant)
WARNING THIS BOOK CONTAINS BAD LANGUAGE.
This book is fantastic. It is very easy to read. There are 50 chapters but they are only 3-7 pages long.
The story line is gripping and I never want to put it down even when I have to!
I think that this book is for children aged 10-16.
I rate this 4.5*/5*

The name of the story is the mugging Diaries and in june it will go to the national finals along with its writer James. here is a bit of it "Dear Diary,
Today I did it again. It was the basic “give me all your money or I’ll shoot”. He refused, instead he tried to punch me. He swung and as I felt his fist push the air toward my face I pulled the trigger. He fell back and hit the floor! I took his wallet and ran back to the grimy rat infested scum hole I call home."

We have just began to set up our accounts for the shadowing scheme. Last Session we chose which book we wanted to read and I personally picked mine to prove them all wrong. They all thought THE VANISHING was a girls book but I think after reading the first 11 chapters it is a book for both I reccomend you read it.
