I thought I would write a review of my favourite book at the moment. It is more of a teenage book, but i’m sure it’s something that a lot of you will be interested in reading soon. Miss Cooper 🙂

Twilight – Stephanie Meyer

Main characters – Bella, Edward, Jacob, Charlie, Alice, Jasper, Rosalie, Emet, Dr Cullen and Mrs Cullen.

Bella is from sunny Arizona. She moves to Forks to live with her dad because her mum is travelling on the road with her boyfriend a lot. When Bella starts her new school, she begins to notice the strange appearances and behaviours of the Cullen family, with their pale white skin, topaz coloured eyes and never turning up on sunny days…When Edward Cullen saves Bella from a car crash in a flash and stops the car from hitting Bella with only one hand, she gets really suspiscious.
The Cullens turn out to be vegetarian vampires, who live amongst humans and do not come in school on sunny days, because their skin sparkles in the sunlight and they never sleep! Bella and Edward fall in love and things are all going well, for a while…

People start going missing in Forks when evil vampires arrive in the Forks area. Bella ends up caught in the hands of James, the vicious vampire, who tracks humans. Can Edward save Bella before she becomes a vampire forever???

Jennifer ‘s diary
Annie Fine & Claire Douglass
Jennifer and Iolanthe
Jennifer has lots of imagination but her best friend Iolanthe doesn’t. Iolanthe is a very pretty girl and has a rainbow coloured diary but just writes ” it was sunny today”.They fall out with each other and aren’t friends. Jennifer finds her diary and writes in it and they finally become friends and Jennifer shares her ideas with Iolanthe and they enjoy the rest of time in school.
I like this book because it has a nice happy ending.
I think 5 and over would like this book also because it has simple words and it is easy to understand.
