My Review

This book is inspired by the compelling true story of Sarah Grimké, it explores issues of freedom, gender roles, race relations, the law, and belief. Well worth a read.

The First Third by Will Kostakis

Call Number: F KOS

ISBN: 9780143568179

Publication Date: 2013-08-01

Life is made up of three parts: in the first third, you're embarrassed by your family; in the second, you make a family of your own; and in the end, you just embarrass the family you've made. That's how Billy's grandmother explains it, anyway. She's given him her bucket list (cue embarrassment), and now, it's his job to glue their family back together. No pressure or anything. Fixing his family's not going to be easy, and Billy's not ready for change. But as he soon discovers, the first third has to end some time. And then what? It's a Greek tragedy waiting to happen.

My Review - The Rig

This was book won the Hot Key Books/Guardian Young Writers Prize and I loved it! It is like a puzzle you piece together, while Drake's goal is obvious his journey is unimaginable. Although the start is quite slow, as soon as the scene is set and the characters are constructed the pace does not stop. It is full of suspense and definitely worth a read!

Rated 5 stars

 

 

My Review - The Messenger

This book depicts the brutal side of humanity; it contains swearing, drinking, violence and rape. Although I found this confronting, for me, the message of changing people's lives for the better shone over the dark undertones. The Messenger won the 2003 Australian Children's Book Award for Older Readers. It is well worth a read.

 

 

 

My Review - The Light Between Oceans

A well-written book that kept me engaged from start to finish. The author’s detail to the location and the definition of the characters connected me deeply to the story. It compelled me to ask if I would I have made the same decisions under the same circumstances.
