A book that moved me

I realise you have probably written a few book reviews in school before, describing plots and characters and themes. This time I want you to write your review in a more personal way. How did the book affect you? Was its impact more powerful because of when you read it: your age, where you were, who you were with, things that were happening to you or around you?

Maybe, less a book review and more a description of a book that meant a lot to you and why. Feel free to browse around for inspiration, but don't be afraid to do it your own way.

Have a look at this page where a writer describes his favourite teenage books as books that teenagers shouldn't read...

As with the travel writing, log in and write your review as a New Post.

    Read your classmates's book posts. Comment (thoughtfully) on at least three of them.

    Do not leave anyone's post without a comment.
