Kids’ Club Review by Molly: Azzi in between

Azzi in Between, by Sarah Garland

Azzi in between is about a girl named Azzi who is going to live in another country because of the war raging in her country, but will leaving mean leaving Grandma behind? This book is great because it tells you what life would be like with war raging around you. I would recommend this book for 8 and up.

5 stars

Kids’ Club Review by Luke: Azzi in between

This book is about a girl called Azzi who lives in a war ridden country. She and her family leave the country for a better life but leave her Grandma behind. Will she have a better life and see her Grandma again? I rate this 5 stars because some people have to do this in real life and it lets other people have a deeper understanding on what is happening. I think children 8+ should read this book.

Azzi in between is about a girl called Azzi. The war is getting closer to her town. One night her father comes back and says she has to move and they drive to a ship which takes them to a new country. Azzi has to learn how to live in a completely different place. I liked this book because it was well written and easy to follow. It had nice pictures too.

Kids’ Club Review by Cardi: The impossible boy

The impossible boyThe impossible boy, by Leonie Agnew (1977-)

I like it. It is funny to be stuck in someone’ s head and I would like to meet a purple girl. Vincent is very bold and very brave. He killed the closet monster, the Hanger Man! And Sofia believed in him so quick!

This is a well structured book, that follows the journey of a young refugee girl who moves to New Zealand and starts school. It is a story that has illistrations that are so well thought out it feels like a movie.

No Gun For Asmir, by Christobel Mattingley

I thought this was a very cool book. It is about a boy named Asmir who lives in Sarajevo. When war arrives, his father is taken from him. He escapes from Sarajevo and becomes a refugee. I loved reading this book and would recommend it for anyone aged between 9 and 11.
