Tribes by Catherine MacPhail
This story is about two gangs - the Tribe and the Rebels - and a boy called Kevin who isn't really interested in joining one but eventually undergoes an initiation test to become a member of Tribes. I enjoyed this book because it was action packed and had a gripping storyline.

Love, Aubrey by Suzanne LaFleur
I recommend this story because it has a very good plot. It is about a girl called Aubrey and her mum who goes missing. At first it is fun for her being at home alone eating just bread and cheese but then her grandma arrives to help her. It is a great book and on the front cover it says "she will make you cry, she will make you smile. Aubrey will stay with you forever."

The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas by John Boyne
This is an emotional book about a young boy called Bruno whose father is high up in the command of the German army during World War 2. The book grips your attention from the start and you begin to see the world through Bruno's eyes; I was sucked into it immediately.

This book is a classic but it isn't boring! It is about the life of Jane Eyre. It begins when she is a child and is sent away to a boarding school.

Bumble the Brave Kitten by Samantha Hay
I recommend this book because it is very funny especially when the mice invade the police station! In some parts it is also really sad like when Tizer the kitten isn't very strong and nearly dies. It is very emotional and highly recommended.
