    Hetty Feather
    By: Jacqueline Wilson

    Hetty Feather is about a foundling child in the Victorian Times. Hetty Feather is a very head strong and determined girl who is frequently getting into trouble with the two matrons( Matron Bottomly and Matron Pigface). The tale is full of heartbreak, laughter and sorrow as young Hetty grows up determined not to become a servant girl like the rest of the foundlings.

    The books strengths being that you felt you were in the characters place. She did this by narrative description used as it made you feel what Hetty Feather felt. Also, once you started reading this book it was impossible to put down again.

    The action manly took part in London inside the Foundling Hospital but some of it was written in the countryside.

    I loved the style of writing Jacqueline Wilson used as she described everything extremely well and also it was written from a child’s perspective so it was more funny/enjoyable. I would highly recommend his book and the others in this series to any Primary School aged girls.

    Jacqueline Wilson is a well known children’s author. She was born on December 17th 1945 in Bath and was a UK nominee for the International Hans Christian Anderson Award in 2014. In June 2013, Jacqueline Wilson was appointed Professional Fellow of the University of Roehampton, where she is now pro-chancellor.

    Book review of CARRY ON (author Rainbow Rowell)

    I read the prequel to this, which is called FANGIRL and I loved it. Until I came to DHSG, I didn’t realise that there was a second book until I came across this in the library. I’ve been laughing, gasping, nearly crying as I read this book and I would definitely recommend it to someone else because of the following reasons.
    At the beginning, I was reading through it in suspense, wondering where Baz was and if Simon would break down before Baz got back to school. I think that Baz’s mischievous streak is what made the book great for me as his comedic yet honest nature proved that you can be a vampire yet still have fun even when your kidnapped by trolls or being hunted down by your best friend’s evil twin.
    Personally, I think that this book is definitely one of my favourite reads this year because I felt like I had some kind of link with the characters in this book. I really enjoyed reading this book and I think that it is a shame that there isn’t many other books that ereally get me to sit down and not be able to put the book down at night.

    The Thief Lord by Cornelia Funke
    The Thief Lord is written by Cornelia Funke and was published in 2000.There is also a movie that came out in 2006.It is set in old Venice,Italy. It is about two children called Prosper and Bo whose mum has died and they are sent to live with their Aunt who they really don’t like, so they decide to run away from her and go to Venice because their mother used to tell them stories that it was a wonderful place full of adventures. It is there that they meet the mysterious Theif Lord who takes them under his wing and gives them shelter in an old,disused cinema where there are also other kids. Their aunt sends a detective,Victor Getz to look for them. The story continues about the children and all the breaking ins the Thief Lord does and how the aunt is still looking to find them. It is a really good crime book that I could not put down. It is for children between the ages of 10 and 13 and I would recommend this for that age. I would rate this book five stars out of five because it is fun and you can’t stop reading it! It all flows into each thing that happens and there are loads of smaller stories happening in one story and that is why I like it so much! It is in the school library so you can go and read it!

    This book was very interesting and had a good story line. I would suggest this book to anyone wanting a fiction/adventure kind of book between the ages of nine and fifteen. It didn’t have very many challenging words but it had a few which makes it easier for younger readers who might want to read it.

    I really enjoyed it because it had lots going on and it had suspense so you just wanted to know what was going to happen next. Another reason it was good is because you could relate to the characters and everything that was happening could happen in real life. As well as that I thought the scenes were all set in places you probably would be if that was happening. The ending was really good because at the end you found out what happened but it kept suspense on a few things so you would want to read the next book and otherwise the end would be boring. I think the best part of the book is the middle because it is exciting and you always want to know what happens next because there was lots going on.

    Somersaults and dreams. By Cate Sherewater.

    I have chosen somersaults and Dreams because it’s all about gymnastics and I love gymnastics. I think it’s an amazing book because the author describes the scenes and emotions really well. The main character, Ellie Trengilly, moves to London (from a beach in Cornwall ) with a family she’s never met before. They have two children,Tam and Nancy, who are both gymnasts as well. They all go to the London Gymnastics Academy and the three of them become great friends. Ellie’s Dad makes her gym equipment so she can practice on the beach. My favourite scene is when Ellie goes out one last time in her row boat before catching the train to London.

    This book is all about the stages of how Ellie comes from a small and unknown gym club to becoming closer and closer to her Olympic Dream. This book inspired me to work as hard as possible so I could make my own story.

    I recommend this book for girls aged 8+ and into lots of gymnastics

    The Hunger Games (Book 1)
    By Suzanne Collins

    The Hunger Games is a series of three books about a 16-year-old girl called Katniss Everdeen who lives in a world split into districts and ruled by the Capitol. Katniss lives in District 12 with her mother and little sister Prim. Every year, for their entertainment, the Capitol holds a contest called The Hunger Games with only one rule: Kill or be Killed. They choose two children from each district to go to the Games and all 24 fight until only one remains. Katniss’ sister Prim gets chosen to go one year so Katniss volunteers to take her place. The story is all about Katniss’ time during The Hunger Games.

    My favourite character in the book was Katniss because she volunteered to go so that her sister wouldn’t have to which shows she cares about her family and wants to protect them. She is also very clever which we learn during The Hunger Games because she uses her bow and arrow skills which she learnt at home to find herself food and keep herself alive.

    My favourite part of the book, was during The Hunger Games because I found it very exciting and gripping,I didn’t know what was going to happen next but I didn’t want to put it down. The Hunger Games are very gruesome and gory but very exciting too.

    At the end of the book, it is left on a cliffhanger which makes you feel frustrated but glad there is another book to read which carries on from the first.

    I would give this book 10 out of 10 and definitely recommend it for older readers. I really enjoyed reading this book and once I had finished I read the next two which were really good as well.

    The Inheritance Cycle ( four books)
    By: Christopher Paolini

    The Inheritance Cycle is one of my favourite book series. It is a fantasy series. Here are the order of the four books: 1. Eragon,( for some reason everyone things that the blue dragon on the cover is Eragon but she actually isn’t- She’s called Saphira) 2.Eldest 3.Brisingr 4.Inheritance. The inheritance cycle series is normally for young adults, but you can be younger if you want. Set up in the world of Alagaësia (Ah-Luh-gaze-ee-uh) , the novel focuses on the adventure of a teenage boy called Eragon (Erruh-gahn)and his dragon, Saphira ( suh-fear-uh) as they team up with The Varden,( The second most powerful army in the land.) to overthrow the evil King Galbatorix (Gall-ba-torr-ix.) I have to admit that the first book is quite boring, but the other three books are amazing. I think you should still read the first book though or else you’ll be really confused if you don’t. This series is mostly Fantasy, with a tint of romance in it. I think it is good for any age and that I recommend it for people who are imaginative and like fantasy books.

    I read a book called Out Of Control it is wrote by Sarah Alderson and rated 4.5 stars. The book is about an adventurous 17 year old girl Liva who witnesses a brutal murder she’s taken in to police custody for her own protection. But when the police station is attached and bullets start flying it becomes clear that Liva is not just a witness, she’s a target. This book is in first person that helps you understand the feelings of the characters. It is a book for somebody who like action and adventure it has a great plot and always has another turn in the story this creates tension that makes you want to read on. I certainly recommend this book to a friend or anyone from the ages of 11 to 16. I think Sarah Alderson has a very smart use of vocabulary she is a very good writer that has a great imagination.

In real life it’s Tilly’s best friend who has a beautiful raspberry pink dress with roses around the skirt, to wear at a beautiful white rosy wedding. Tilly can’t help being a tiny bit jealous of Matty- because what Tilly wants more than anything in the world is to be a bridesmaid at her own mum and dad’s wedding, but she knows that is never going to happen. Tilly is so worried that she will never be a bridesmaid so she takes matters into her onw hands and sets up an advertisement to offer her bridesmaid services for hire…

    An Eagle in the Snow- By Michael Morphurgo

    An Eagle in the Snow is an amazing book that I’ve just finished. It was inspired by a true story and is about a man who could have stopped World War 2. It’s incredibly interesting and is factual as well as engrossing.
    This book is written in a very clever way. The boy (Barney) and his mother were in a train which is under attack from German planes, in the pitch black darkness, a stranger tells a true story of someone he knew, a story that was amazing. The story is of a man who near the end of fighting lowered his gun to a person who (though he didn’t know it) was Adolf Hitler.
    It was a true story and is amazing that this person could have put an end to Hitler and his fighting. It tells of the remorse Billy the young soldier felt when he realized what he could have done. The story also tells of the devastation WW2 and the guilt Billy felt, it shows you what a dreadful time people had during that period and makes the reader feel empathy.
    This is a book for everyone- it’s factual but doesn’t bombarde you with them. It makes you appreciate what people went through in the war. If you like Morphurgo you’ll definitely love this- because the way he writes is one of a kind and like no other.

    Star rating: 4/12 out of 5

    Dork Diaries book review

    This book review is about …..

    Dork Diaries

    Puppy love

    Author Rachel Renee Russell

    This book is a great book because it isn’t just writing all of the way through it has some cartoon drawings throughout the book.
    Dork Diaries is a series of books that tell us about the life of this girl called Nicky Maxwell and all of the drama that goes along with it. If you are into reading and laughing along with it, you will definitely enjoy this series of books.

    In the first book she talks to us about getting a brand new phone and the fact that she has moved to a private school because of an embarrassing secret, her dad is the schools bug exterminator, which is a man who comes in and if there are any loose bugs he will get rid of them!

    But, to her surprise there is this one girl called Mackenzie Hollister. A girl who is the most popular girl in school and is also the mean girl. She is trying to get Nicky kicked out of school and away from this boy called Brandon Roberts.

    The only problem is that they both have lockers next to each other. She also knows Nicky’s secret about her dad being the school bug exterminator. What will Mackenzie do, Will she expose everything she knows about Nicky?

    This book is an amazing book and I would definitely recommend it to people who like funny and exciting books with a little bit of a twist. You would definitely enjoy it if you read it!This book is one of my favorite books I have read so far because you get so absorbed into reading the book you forget the time and realize you have read the entire thing!

    The five people you meet in heaven
    By: Mitch Albom

    This book is about an old man called Eddie who works at a place called Ruby Pier. He is a lonely war veteran with a dodgy leg after being shot. He works the rides at the pier and one day one of his main rides breaks. A little girl he had seen earlier on in the day was on the ride plummeting to her death so he dived out to save her and he got killed in the process.

    The whole story is about the 5 different people that you meet in heaven when you die. Throughout the process of being in heaven Eddie slowly ages with each person he meets and with each person he realises heaven is really not the lush gardens of Eden he expected. The idea Albom has is that your life is explained to you by the five people you meet and even though one of them may be strangers, they all impacted your life in some way, shape or form. The book is kind of comedic but also quite serious at the same time.

    I really liked the book and style that Albom wrote in, the story made me laugh and smile. I could pick it up at any time and enjoy it. The story jumps from the present tense to a time in the past or certain days that were of importance to Eddie in his crazy life. It was a really good story and I liked it because it was quite different to the books I normally read. I am definitely going to read some more books like this in the future.

    I think an older or more mature reader would enjoy this book because the story line is hard to follow and a younger reader may get bored or confused. I definitely recommend this book to other readers and I hope you enjoy it !!

    I AM MALALA

    On July 12, 1997, Malala Yousafzai was born in Mingora, Pakistan, located in the country’s Swat Valley. For the first few years of her life, her home town remained a popular tourist spot that was known for its summer festivals. However, the area began to change as the Taliban tried to take control. In this book, Malala Yousafzai tells us how she grew up in Mingora, Pakistan and how her Fathers school was a base for the feared Taliban and one faithful day, when she was coming back from school a man from the Taliban shot her in the head so she was taken to Birmingham (hospital) where she now lives.

    I thought the book was very inspiring especially because she was still fighting for women’s education even though she had watched others protesters being killed whilst protesting for women’s rights. The trauma she had gone through, Malala and the affect the Taliban have had on her life is not showing through her dedicated.

    Millions of men and women around the world look up to her as a role model. She started her campaign for all girls to go to school around the world when she was only 11 years old. Her first speech gathered national attention, which later caused death threats towards her and her father.

    ” I raise up my voice – not so that I can shout but those without a voice can be heard” – Malala Yousafzai.

    Her campaign which is called #yesallgirls has lead her to see many great people including Obama when she went to the White House. Another great experience Malala has had include speaking at the United Nations on her 16th birthday.

    Book review on Divergent

    Divergent is a great book by Veronica Roth. The book is about a teenager who lives in a city which is divided into 6 factions. These factions are called erudite- (smartness), abnigation – (selflessness), daunterless -(bravery), canador -(honesty), amity -(fairness) and Factionless -(people without a faction).
    The main character or Divergent is called Betreace who starts as an abnigation. At school, she has an aptude test to determine which faction she will be best in. She is chosen for three factions so she is classified to Divergent.
    Later in the book, she goes to a choosing ceremony where she chooses daunterless.
    Divergent is an amazing book because there are always unexpected twists and events. I would put this book in the adventure category because she is learning and going on adventures to become daunterless. This book is also romantic too.
    I would rate this book ten out of ten ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes a good gory book crossed with a romantic novel. I think many people would like this book because it is intriguing and very interesting. If I had to describe this book with one word, I would say ‘Thriller’ because it is always giving you another event to look forward to. This book is amazing!!!!!!

    My book report is about Twilight, written by Stephanie Meyer. I think twilight was a great book because it is full of suspense. It is amazing because of the unexpected twists with Edward and Bella. There relationship gets confusing at the start, because one minute Edward is horrible to Bella because of the sent of her blood and then he asks her to meet his family. As you may or may not know, Edward was changed into the vampire by Carlyle and because of him Edward doesn’t drink human blood. They consider themselves to be ‘vegetarians’. Then you have Jacob, he is a werewolf. Jacob and his pack do not like vampires, especially not Edward and his family. Bella and Jacob were best friends when they were young. Jacob’s farther is close friends with Bella’s father and like to watch sports games together, this means Jacob spends more time with Bella. Edward doesn’t like Bella being with Jacob and Jacob wants Bella to stay away from Edward, so you can see that it can get a little heated sometimes. But before Bella started to date Edward, for some reason Edward felt like he needed to protect her from everything bad. So when Bella was in trouble he was straight to the rescue and saved her from being in a bit of a twist. Just before the end it was prom and Bella was tacked by Edward, they danced and had fun together. This is when they new they were in love. This book would be enjoyed by a modern reader because it is set in the more recent years.

    Divergent by Veronica Roth

    Divergent is a book where there are 5 factions (Amity, Dauntless, Candor, Erudite and Abnegation), ever person is split into these factions, depending on what their personality is, eg. Candor are honest. Tris (the main character) however, is a divergent which means she doesn’t fit into a faction and she can fight the simulation. The simulation is what you have to know what faction to go in and to see if you’re good enough to get in.
    When Tris is 16 (along with all the other 16 year olds) she has to go in a ceremony to see if she will stay in her faction (abnegation) or move to another. She decides to move to dauntless, but little does she know what will happen there…

    I really enjoyed reading divergent because it has a lot of tension, making it exciting and makes you want to read more. It is also full of surprises and events which are unpredictable, making it even more exciting. Suitable for 12+

    Maze runner book review – James Dashner
    The book opens with a boy named Thomas- that’s his name and all he can remember too. Everything he had ever known until then was gone. He (when we first meet him) is in a metal lift. Doors open overhead and he finds himself in ‘the Glade’ a farmstead and camp in the middle of a huge stone maze. A group of teenagers (all males) have created a makeshift life there, one day hoping they can leave it all behind. Like Thomas, none of them can remember anything at all from before the maze. Every month a new boy is sent up to the Glade, and each week supplies come up through the same lift. After Thomas arrives he learns about monsters that haunt the maze; Grievers. Grievers are huge tyrannical monsters that can sting you which results in a process named the changing. After a few days at the maze, Thomas meets the runners, a group of gladers that go into the maze everyday trying to find a way out. Thomas wanted to be like them, and asks to join. After training and lots of discussions Thomas becomes a runner. He and another boy Minho go in one day, and stay in for too long. They have to stay overnight; which is when Grievers come out. They had no chance, but somehow they survived. After that, lots of dangerous and tense scenes happen (you have to read and find out). They discover something and how to get out and decide to try it. It works and sadly something happens to a character close to Thomas.

    Overall, I really recommend this book! It is amazing! It holds tense scenes, adventures and ‘hanging off your seat’ moments. Personally though, I wouldn’t recommend this book to children under the age of 10 as some things may be a little age inappropriate.

    Harry Potter
    By JK Rowling

    In the muggle (non magical folk) world. People live normally like us. Amongst them, are wizards and witches, magical beings, who also have there normal lives until one wizard decides to dig deep into magical history and bring back evil. He had found a way to take over. There were many rebellions and wars against good and bad. Voldemort (the villain of the magical world), always won. He was very powerful.
    Several years later, he heard of a prophecy that had spoken of two boys. One of which will be the one to defeat him and have powers he had never heard of. Though he did hear the whip prophecy so instead of waiting for the two boys to grow up to see which one was more powerful, Voldemort decided to attack one of the boys straight away. He attempted to kill him but his curse rebounded and had hit himself. Voldemort was at a near death point when he went into hiding. He did not die. Voldemort had these objects he had made by splitting his sole. They kept him alive. These objects are so full of dark magic, they could not be destroyed except with very rare material.
    Harry Potter, the boy Voldemort attempted to kill, grew up and found about the prophecy and his task to destroy these horcruxes. He is on an difficult, ongoing process that includes many ups and downs but he soon finishes it with his friends, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, at his own school, Hogwarts. This battle was named the Battle of Hogwarts.

    I love the books because they never get old. The next time you read the books, you understand more about the plot and then you might be able to put two pieces of the story together and it could make more sense or just make it more complicated.
    I think these books are appropriate for everyone but especially people with big imaginations or are lacking imagination. This set could really boost their mind up.

    This book has a great and moving story behind it. I was overwhelmed by reading this book and really felt for Tess. I was captured within the plot and finished the book within a week.

    Black Powder – Ally Sherrick
    Genre: Historical Fiction

    Set in London, in 1605, this book retells the story of the gunpowder plot through the eyes of Tom, the twelve-year-old son of a poor catholic man. Living under the protestant rule of King James I, Tom’s family was fearful of being persecuted for their religion. One day Tom’s father brings home a Jesuit priest in need of care and the family gets in trouble with the police. On the run from the law, his father is destined for the hangman’s noose. Now Tom is on a desperate mission to find his uncle, who has the king’s ear, to plead his case before the king. Tom meets a mysterious character known only as the Falcon who offers to ‘help’ in return for carrying out some favours.

    I favour the part of the book where Tom finds out his companion, the Falcon, has deceived him and the action that ensues because Sherrick builds up the tension so that you can’t put the book down. Throughout the story, the reader struggles with the notion that it is excusable to sometimes break the law because of your convictions. I think that Ally Sherrick deals with this theme well as you warm to the character and empathise with them because you relate to them in the same way as Tom does; he is fond of them and understands why they would commit these crimes.

    Overall this is a terrific bookfor those who enjoy a nail-biting read. I couldn’t put it down! If like me you love a lot of history and mystery and are aged 8 and above, this book is for you!

    Girl online book review
    This amazing book by the amazing youtuber Zoe Sugg, aka Zoella, really got me captivated and I really understand the main character Penny Porter.
    I really enjoyed this book because it showed me many things about life that can always be ok. Penny has been through tough times but luckily her very fashionable friend Elliot always looks out for which makes the book so lovely and a great read. I love the whole storyline how she goes with her family to New York and she finds her true love, Noah. This part of the book is really romantic how he treats her like a princess and I really like it. Penny’s emotions are constantly being told which makes it more real of how her life is a bumpy road. I think this book is very inspirational for young girls around the age of 10-14. It really shows that when everything goes wrong you can rely on your friends to help you out in your tough times which I find adds to the books greatness.
    The only thing that makes this book uninteresting is that you don’t get everyone’s point of view in the story such as Megan’s who is the mean ex-best friend who could have another side to the story. I think to make the book better is that Megan was included more and that the sleepover scene was more detailed so that I could find out if it could be awkward or Megan could secretly be enjoying it.
    Overall, I love this book and I would give it an 8 1/2 out of 10.I absolutely love it and definitely recommend this amazing novel by such an amazing author.

    The book I am writing about is called You Killed Me. This book is very good. It is good because it leads you into not want I got to put the book down. He does this by his greate descriptive sentences. It is almost like you are there at that moment in time.

    The main characters In the story are, Toby, a young boy around the age of 13. Len Grimsby, a middle aged man, the ghost of the story.

    It is about an ordinary man who has been killed. This man turns up at a hous, the house of the murderer. The dead man scares the boy. He tries to get him to reverse the murder. The boy doesn’t want to. Until finally he gives in and takes the dead mans hand. This book is not for the squeamish people out there. There is quite a lot of grim bits.

    This book is written by Keith Gray. This is a good quote ‘ the man pointed to the hole where his eye used to be. You did this, you killed me!’ As you can tell this is not a happy story.

    This book is not very long it is only 71 pages long. So it is a book you will be able to read very quickly. It may be short but you will get hooked just like I did. I hope I have convinced you into getting or looking at this very good book, because I certainly was! I would give this book a rating of 41/2 out of 5.

    The Fault in Our Stars
    John Green

    Earlier this term I read the fault in our stars by John Green. It is about a girl called Hazel Grace Lancaster who suffers from lung cancer and how she befriends Augustus Waters who has also been diagnosed with cancer. The book shows how they can help each other through the cancer and how it feels to survive the death of a loved one.

    This book is first person narrated by Hazel who uses narration to show her opinions on life, boys, family and cancer. John Green has allowed readers to find out more about how Hazel feels by using the narration.

    This book was published on the 10th of January 2012 by Dutton books and has since been developed into a popular film. It is extremely sad in places but is an amazing book that leaves you thinking. It is hard to put down and has an amazing storyline.

    This book is available in the school library and is an amazing read so I would recommend anyone aged 9+ reads it.

    Book review of: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child: by Jack Thorn and John Tiffany
    Harry Potter and the Cursed child is a play script written by Jack Thorn and John Tiffany, based on the original Harry Potter series by J.K Rowling.
    The scene is set 19 years into the future Harry, now being head Auror, Hermione being minister of magic and Ron (her husband) managing Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes. The script stars Harry’s youngest son: Albus and Harry’s former school nemesis Draco Malfoy’s son: Scorpius. Albus is heading into Hogwarts in the shadow of not only his famous father but also his popular, well liked older brother, James. Going into the school with a thirst to prove himself, Albus is placed in Slytherin, much to his dismay, starting the trouble about to come his way. During the holidays Amos Diggory makes a reappearance, after hearing rumours that their is still one time turner left, he goes to Harry, pleading for it to be used to bring back his son Cedric, but someone has other plans for the precious turner, and its not for good intentions…
    I would highly recommend this book for any reader over the age of 9. You need to know the basics of the other Harry Potter books though or you will find yourself quite lost in the series of events. However, if you are happy with the content of the original books I would recommend you not read it since I, someone who has read Harry Potter multiple times and its my favourite book, got frustrated at times since it will change you view of not only the wonderful, magical, wizarding world we are introduced to in J.K Rowling’s original series but how you think of Harry, a character you back through his adventures, made to look coldhearted, something I found very grating. However, overall I would consider it a very enjoyable read, and it was particularly interesting because it was a play script; a genre I am unused to reading. I hope after this review you will consider reading: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, if your up for a challenging, exciting read…
