March Reviews from St Kilda

Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins, Review by Freya

This is the last book in the Hunger Games series. It's about this girl called Katniss, her sister Prim and her best friend Gale. They're in District 13 and all the other districts are at war with the Capitol. Peta, this guy she loves, is in the Capitol too. Katniss and her friends rescue him, but he is getting really weird and acting strangely towards her.

Rated: 4/5 Reallys "Katniss is my favourite character."

I like this book, it's set under the sea. At first they are on a boat trying to hunt a monster but it's actually a submarine.
They do about a billion things. At first they catch and eat a lot of fish as there are no hot dog stands in the ocean. 

Rated: 4/5 Reallys "It's a good book"

This is the second book in the All the Wrong Questions series. There's a missing girl in Stain'd by the Sea and they're asking everyone questions about her disappearance. So far they have two places where she said be. They discover that there is a fake version of her because she is being targeted. The real version is working on an invisible ink that actually works. There are three criminals, Hangfire, a natural villain, a scientist called Dr. Flammarion and a nurse called Nurse Dander, a skilled knife cutter.

Rated: 4/5 Reallys "The introduction and the middle are a bit boring but it gets really interesting later on"

Alex Rider: Never Say Die by Anthony Horowitz, Review by Yuanquan

It's about this 15 year old kid called Alex Rider. He's a spy for MI6. His dad was a spy who helped infiltrate Scorpia. His uncle was a spy who got murdered like his dad. His housekeeper, Jack also got "murdered." He gets a message from her that says Alexx I'm AL. For some reason he decides this is proof that she is still alive and he travels across the world to Cairo, Egypt to infiltrate the prison where her car was flooded. He finds a name underneath it, but then he gets captured by the Egyptian intelligence force. He rides a super plane down to Saint-Tropez. Then he gets thrown into the water and almost drowns. He tries to stop a museum heist but it was a Scorpia plot. Then they steal a whole bunch of children that are worth billions of dollars. The parents only have 48 hours to come up with the money before they lose them for good... 

Rated: 4.5/5 Reallys. "Great plot."

The Queen gets bored seeing all the same faces at her parties. The butler says how about you pick a name from the telephone book to invite next time. She gets to the Ts and picks Old Tom's owner! Five months later, Old Tom goes to collect the mail he finds an invitation for two for afternoon tea.

Rated: 4/5 Reallys "It's funny"
