The Giver Part 4

Okay so I finished the book 'The Giver' and now am going to sum it up. Jonas finds out that Gabe will be released and steals himself and Gabe away to find the other places that await them far away. They face tortuous times as the are hungry and being tracked down by the community. But they escape perfectly and live in the town that has love and things that Jonas has only ever seen in the memories.After 'The Giver' there is (yes it's a series; the surprises continue) 'Gathering Blue' and 'Messenger'. In 'Messenger' Jonas comes back as a character, now older. And if you liked 'The Giver' you may also like 'Crow Country'. Sure, they are pretty different but it's a good story.

P.S. The Giver is now one of my favourite books.
P.P.S. I doubt I will be reviewing 'Gathering Blue' and 'Messenger'. Soz

The Giver Part 3

The Giver gives Jonas the memories by placing his hands on Jonas's back. His family unit (Jonas's) has, for a while, taken care of a new child called Gabe. He has light eyes too and, by accident, one day Jonas at night whilst trying to lull him back to sleep he gave him a memory of a boat! That's all. Oh wait! There also is no color! How dumb.

The Giver Part 2

Hi guys! This is part 2' of 'The Giver'. So Jonas has read the rules and orders. They are simple but there are a few he doesn't get. He can lie. That's so weird. He can't lie! Anyway so he goes to the 'Giver' and he is transpitted the memory of 'snow', 'runners', 'sled', 'downhill', 'sunshine' and 'sunburn'. And so sorry, but that's all I'm up to so SEE YA!

The Giver Part 1

So my teacher (no names and shout out to her!) is reading my class a class novel called 'The Giver'. We're about a 1/4 through it and I thought 'I could review what we read each week!'. SOOOOOOO I will. This is 'The Giver'

I am really enjoying this book at the moment! So Jonas lives- Well, I don't know where or when but in a place with so many rules! They are originally called numbers- wait! Look at this:

Those are some of the ridiculous rules. After 12 you're an adult and you can't choose your job, it's chosen for you and age doesn't matter. So Jonas is worried about the ceremony of 12. He's worried of what his assignment will be. But when it comes he isn't assigned but selected. He's chosen to become the 'Receiver of Memory' and is sent to the Giver. Now Jonas is special. He has lighter eyes. So one day, he's throwing an apple and he sees it change. And that's all I'm up to. Keep you all updated!

Chris's ghost

Hey all! Soz it took so long for me to write a new review, I've been busy. Besides, I've found a really good book to review:):):):)!

Okay, let's get this started; this book (I don't know where or when this was set- sorry!) is about a girl called Christina (or Chris preferably) who instead of staying with her aunt with her younger sister she has to stay, alone, with her grumpy uncle who (she thinks) hates her. But things start to change when she starts to see a little boy in a sailor's outfit. It turns out that the boy was a ghost of a child, murdered under Chris's very roof! Then the attic appears to be haunted. Chris tried to block it out by putting a chest in front of it but in the middle of the night she hears it getting pushed aside. And that turns out to be a ghost of a murdered man who was a tutor/run-away criminal. But you can fill out those details about him. So as they (Chris and..... her uncle (yes her uncle)!) start to unravel the mystery Chris and her uncle start to get along! They find out that he's after some rare stamps hidden somewhere. Chris and her uncle spend a day looking for them, and find them at last! I won't tell you where for two reason: 1. Cliff hanger (almost) 2. I forgot. Anyway, back to the story. Then the go out to a cafe to reward themselves and sleep in the car overnight instead of going home. Before they leave they give the stamps to the police, baffled because the mystery was about 30 years old! (Or at least, I think they handed them in. If I wasn't right please comment and tell me how. Thanks!).

At a glance:
 Title: Chris's Ghost
Author: Betty Ren Wright
Publisher: Apple Paperbacks
Target Age: 10-11
Tweenie's Rating: 10 stars (that's the highest)

Hope you like it!
