Celia (Yr 5) gives “Coraline” 5 stars

Coraline Book Cover Coraline
Neil Gaiman

It's about a girl called Coraline who meets her other mum and dad when she moves into her new house. Though luckily she gets back into her own world. I like this book because it's scary and freaky. I also find it pretty cool how the story is set. Coraline is a really nice girl.

Charlotte’s review of Milk and Honey

Milk and Honey Book Cover Milk and Honey
Rupi Kaur

It's a book about Rupi Kaur's experience going through abuse, bad relationships, love, acceptance. It made you feel and think for another person to see what it felt like for them. The book teaches you it can get better and you will find love again, in yourself.
