Group status: The Lie Tree is a fantastic book! Lots of Mysteries for Faith and an excellent twist to the story! Do you think you would enjoy this book?

We are a group of children from 5LW who love to read and discuss our opinions. At the moment we are reading The Lie Tree by Frances Hardinge. Every week we meet up in our lunchtime and share our reading, thoughts and opinions. On average we read three chapters a week (which might not sound a lot but there is much to read)! We then come together, summarise what happened in our reading and discuss key points. So far this term we have entered a writing competition and created a trailer based on The Lie Tree.
