Overall I would give this novel a rating of 7/10 ( insert your rating here)andI would/ would not recommend it to others to read because I feel like it sure teach's you a life lesson because not many people get to live the life others do and we need to enjoy it.
The National Standard that I have been aiming for during this unit of learning is:
Year7/8: I can use appropriate skills and technologies to find and use a range of texts for specific purposes.
Each week we have read a short text about a current event/ topic. We then formed questions based on what we had read. After this we researched the answers to our questions and finally we gave our opinions on what we had found out.
