Book review


This was not my usual kind of genre.  It was quite descriptive.  I liked how the story was set out.  It went between Hal, Kayley and her sister Pippa, Mum and Dad and the grandparents which gave you a different perspective on what was happening. 

 By Drew         


It's about a boy who wanted a dog.  He was very happy when he got one, but his parents cheated and it was only for the weekend.......

It's not normally the type of book I would read but I enjoyed it very much.  There was so much emotion in it and the author made you sad for the boy and happy when the boy and dog were together.   By Rhuri
