Lies We Tell Ourselves: Winner of the 2016 Inaugural Amnesty Honour
Author: Robin Talley
This book had a huge influence on me and really made me think ‘would I do that?’ Simply because what ‘the white people’ did to Sarah Dunbar, her family and friends was awful. I really enjoyed this book and hope to read something like it again. My favourite character is Ruth but I didn’t like Linda’s father.

It's a Wrap
Authors: Honor Cargill , Perdita Cargill
I read this book in one month (which is the longest time I have ever taken to read a book) mainly because I really didn’t enjoy it. The story is about a girl called Electra who has teen fame.

Kat Wolfe Investigates
Author: Lauren St John
I was on holiday when this marvellous book was put in front of me. At first I was desperate to put it aside and to never read it but then I opened it and couldn’t stop reading it. Kat Wolfe moves to Bluebell Bay with her mum who is a vet and is terribly excited because her new home comes with its very own cat called Tiny, however, Tiny is not what you think...
Kat decides she wants to be a pet sitter and is called to look after a parrot called Bailey belonging to a local man and a horse called Pocket Rocket and quickly becomes friends with the owner (Harper Lamb). Kat does not know that by doing this she is being caught up in a mystery...
I abseloutley loved this book and am screaming for 2019 to come when the sequel comes out!

Ella on the Outside
Author: Cath Howe
I loved this book as I find I can relate to it a lot. The moral of the story is don’t put your trust into someone you don’t know too well. Ella on the outside is an inspiring book about a girl called Ella. Ella becomes surprised when her new schools most popular girl, Lydia spends lots of time round her and even more when Ella is invited to Lydia’s sleepover Birthday Party. Why has she suddenly become a popular girl? Is it good or bad for her?
I would rate this book 4/5 because it was a really great story and I was really hoping to read the sequel.

In the Mouth of the Wolf
Author: Michael Morpurgo Illustrator: Barroux
I am a massive fan of Michael Morpurgo’s books and this one did not disappoint, it is a true story of two brothers during the War who were the author’s uncles, Francis and Pieter who have entirely different personalities and views about the war. One becomes a soldier and one a spy. The illustrations are also wonderful in this book particularly the front cover. I would recommend this book to boys and girls age 9 plus who love the themes of war, animals, brotherhood,
