Red Girl Blue Boy by Lauren Baratz-Logsted

I’ve seen other kids go through it all at school. So often, it’s the same thing. Person X likes Person Y. and what do you know, it turns out that Person Y likes Person X back. It’s a cery nice thing. It’s the way life should be. But then once all the other letters of the alphabet find out about it, they stick their noses into things… Whatever the case, whatever the reasons, relationships that might otherwise have lasted wind up foundering when all the other letters of the alphabet get involved.

“You know what they say the sign of an intelligent person is? It’s the ability to hold two seemingly conflicting thoughts in your mind at once.”

 When I was Joe by Keren David

It’s one thing watching someone get killed. It’s quite another talking about it. It’s like being trapped and not being able to close your eyes. And I can’t run away this time.

I’m so impressed at how she managed to turn me from villain to victim. But I wonder if a real court is also so open to twisting and turning the facts. Maybe there’s no such thing as real truth, just lots and lots of different ways of explaining the same thing.

Mwah Mwah by Chloe Rayban

Parents! They think they own you. Just because, by some random freak of nature, you happen to be born to them, rather than someone else –someone reasonable, generous, and understanding– they think they have the right to control your life!

I’ve been packed off to Paris. Dad backed Mum up. He said the experience would be ‘character-forming’. Personally, I think my character is pretty well formed already. Normally, I have my own opinions and make my own decisions. Having to give in to parents is a step in the wrong direction if you ask me.
