Year 7 Literary Canon – Book 3
I give this book a nine out of ten, because throughout the book it contains so many different, exciting events that arise along the way. The part I enjoyed most is the connection between Liesel and her Foster Dad (Hans Hubermann). They have a great bond and it will last forever. The section I didn't particularly like is when there are lots of air raids and the war is happening, because it made me feel tense and left me and my form in suspense. My favourite character was Rosa Hubermann because even though she seems really mean on the outside, she has a pure heart and is kind on the inside.
Overall I think this is a really excellent book because it keeps you in suspense throughout the book. It also makes you want to carry on reading, even though you have to stop because of the end of reading time!

The Diary of Anne Frank
Year 8 Literary Canon - Book 3
This Diary of Anne Frank is about two Jewish families. Anne is a 13 year old girl who wrote one of the most powerful diary entries the world has ever seen. The two Jewish families went into hiding during World War Two, this is the time of Nazi occupation. Anne and her family enter the secret annex and their lives change forever. Anne Frank's diary is a powerful, personal account and I found it fascinating to read about her day to day life in the secret annex.
