Choose Love
This book is incredible. Everyone needs to read this because it will open your eyes to the suffering of refugees all around the world. Nicola Davies gives a voice to the refugees through her poetry. These poems will hit you hard. They will hurt, but they are necessary. They are needed. My favourite poems are: - Five Minutes - Mathematics - Hope. All of these poems are life-changing. I really feel for the refugees who are going through this right now, and for the people who have already gone through this because this experience of seeking refuge will stay with them for the rest of their lives. Please read this book.

Away With Words
I really enjoyed this book. Away With Words is about a girl who moves to Scotland without knowing the language. She meets another girl who is mute and they become friends. Together they make poems out of spoken words to help people who are struggling (I think that this is an excellent idea). Unfortunately, someone else is mean to people through the same system. This book really makes you think about the value of words. It makes you think about what would happen if you couldn't speak. This is a heart-warming novel about hope, words and change.
