This review is from: The Rattletrap Trip (Paperback)
This book was extremely good. It is about a called Julia (Jewells) who lives with her foster Mum (Sarsaparilla) and all of her fostered sisters and brother. Sarsaparilla decides to go and live in the rural countryside instead of their normal house. They are pulled out of school and their lives are turned around. Will this way of life work for them or not? You'll have to read and find out.

This review is from: Boy Overboard (Paperback)
This book made me cry because it was sad in places. I enjoyed it and thought that it was better than some of the other books that Morris Gleitzman has written. It is about a boy who has to leave his war-torn country with his Mum, Dad and sister, Bibi, because his parents are secretely running a school when they are not supposed to. The family leave to go to Australia because they need to go somewhere safe, so they leave their country. But will the family get to Australia? And will it be all that they think it is going to be?

4.0 out of 5 stars Moving and believable, 12 July 2006
This was another special book by Morris Gleitzman. I always find that you can read his books quickly and they are easy to read, but they always have depth and a proper story and they always leave you thinking for ages afterwards.

This is a book about a boy called Felix who runs away from the orphanage that he is at during WW2. It is his tale of survival with the people that he meets along the way. The ending is sad. Possiby one of the saddest I have ever read. I was desperate to read it so I finished it during an English lesson at school and I was trying not to cry during the lesson!

I really enjoyed this book and thought that it was excellent. It is about a girl called Megan (not surprisingly!) who gets pregnant and her decision to keep or not to keep the baby. Very good.

Stealing Stacey
Stealing Stacey

Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Stealing Stacey, 7 July 2006
This review is from: Stealing Stacey (Paperback)
This book was good, but it got quite boring in places. It gives a good idea of life in Australia in the Bush. It is about a girl called Stacey (not surprisingly!) who goes to stay with her Grandma in the Bush in Australia. For Stacey, this is a completely new way of life! It is about how she gets on there, her adventures and what happens to her there.

This review is from: Billy the Kid (Paperback)
This book was amazing! I really, really loved it. It was brilliantly written. I enjoyed it so much, even though I didn't think that I would. It is the moving story of a pensioner who fought in WW2, but had wanted to be a footballer.

This review is from: Parvana's Journey (Paperback)
This was a really good book. It is about a girl called Parvana who goes on a journey try and find her family who she hasn't seen because they have been separated from her due to war in their country (Afghanistan). This was a very good book written definetely for young people, through the eyes of a young person. You need to read The Breadwinner first, though, because it is the first in the series.

This review is from: The Breadwinner (Paperback)
I really enjoyed this book and was so pleased when the second in the series came out. It is about a girl growing up under the rule of the Taliban and her life and adventures. Well written from an interesting point of view about real life subjects and things that are going on in the world today, explaining them in a true-to-life detail for young people through the eyes of another young person.
