Away With Words
The book is quite a nice book for people who like mystery. It is about a girl who moves to Scotland from Spain, and she is trying to settle in and make some friends. But just when she starts to settle in, something happens to ruin it for her. The book is not too long, so it is good for people who only have a little bit of time to read.

The Door of No Return
The Door of No return was a very good book that got your heart racing. It brought out many emotions. The book had very surprising and sad twists that kept the reader interested. I thought it was very good at the middle and the end of the book. The writing in this book is of a very high quality.

The Song Walker
The Song Walker was a very good book. It went through the adventure of a girl with no memory trying to find her way out of the Australian Outback. The story was written very well and there are entertaining twists and turns throughout the whole book. On the whole, this was a very good book.

The Song Walker
The story begins when Sienna wakes up in the middle of the Australian outback. She then meets Tarni, a First Country person who is on a journey to find her sister. They travel through the outback together and meet various people on their journey. Sienna's memory slowly begins to return. Their friendship develops and they go through many struggles together in search of Tarni's sister. They are told, in a letter from Tarni's sister, to return. However, they keep going as they have discovered where they they can find Tarni's sister. Once they arrive at this place, they learn that; Tarni's sister is dead; Sienna is actually the daughter of a multi-millionaire and plays the violin; everyone they have interacted with have been spirits; and Sienna's body is still where she was originally found. Throughout this experience, Sienna has learnt that she needs to be a better person and she tells Tarni that she needs to return to her mother. Sienna quickly rewinds her steps and ends up back where she started, and where helicopters find her and take her home. In the epilogue, Tarni and Sienna are at a concert with Sienna playing the violin and Tarni painting, and it shows how they remained friends after all they went through. With this book, I was a bit confused about the ending, as it was very surprising and a bit hard to understand. Overall this book was amazing and I highly recommend it!

Steady for This
The book is about a boy whose family has very little money. He is going to get kicked out of his apartment and have nowhere to live. But can the boy's passion for rapping save his house? I think this is a nice and funny book, and I will also definitely recommend reading it.

Safiyyah's War
Saffiyah’s War is an amazing book that shows how terrible and horrible World War 2 was. It follows the life of Saffiyah who was a Muslim helping the Jews escape the Nazis in Paris. Saffiyah’s War highlights how hard it was for the Jews during the period of Nazi rule. The book shows how, as good humans, we should always be kind and compassionate no matter the circumstance. This was a fascinating book that gives an insight into the traumatic events of Word War 2 from the perspective of the people helping the Jews and the danger of helping them. This was an inspiring, page-turning book!
