Our Reviews (Part 1) ~ Blog 3
Joseph: "That Asian Kid" is an incredible and unpredictable book. The main character, Jeevan (an intelligent 15 year old Asian boy) an A* student in every subject apart from English language. However, Jeevan has a feeling his English teacher is prejudice against him which results in his bad grades. Fortunately for him, he sees his favourite teacher Mr Green and his English language teacher Mrs Greaves snogging and more. Jeevan quickly pulls out his phone and records it. Jeevan is unsure on whether or not to post it on social media or not. I would recommend this book to teenagers and above due to its sexual scene which is inappropriate for younger children. I really enjoyed this book because it teaches the reader about racial awareness.

Why Reading is SOOOO AMAZING! ~ Blog 1
Our school offers a range of enrichment programs such as Book Prizes. Every single person in this enrichment has chosen it because they are COMPLETELY OBSESSED with reading.

Alfie: I chose this enrichment because when I read, I realise that the sky isn't the limit. My mind and my imagination is", plus "there is no friend as loyal as a book" ~ R. G. Collingwood. Evie-Rose: I chose this enrichment because I wanted to learn more about books, why they are being chosen for prizes and how authors come up with these amazing things.
