    Everbody Else's Kids
    I'm now half way through the book; i'm really enjoying it. It is about a young teacher who teaches children with special needs and are struggling. The language the author uses can be a bit confusing at times but apart from that it is good so far.

    Power Of One
    I started this book a couple of days ago and it is realy cool.So far it is about a young 6 year old boy who is called cruel names because of his race.

    I'm up to chapter eight now and this book is awsome. Peekay has gotten of the train to find his mother at the station ready to pick him up and take him home.

I'm really glad someone did tell me it was really good.

    Dead Dan's Dee
    I finished this book today. I didn't really like the ending, to me it was a bit boring. Essie brought Dee a pie for lunch and when she turned up at school to drop her pie off, she had Hilda with her and told Dee that she was going home. I kind of expected that it would end like that which made it less enjoyable.

  • Power Of One

    Power Of One
    I have now finished this book. In the end their was a funeral for Geel Piet. Peekay was about to start school at an expensive boarding school, this time one without a judge. Doc, Mrs Boxall and a lot of other people helped Peekay and his mother to find him a uniform because, it was very expensive adn Peekay's mother just can't afford it. This book was really cool. Although it was horrible the stuff that happened to the prisoners it was exciting because of the depth the author went in to.
