Recommended travelling companions

Anna Kunnel in Year 9 took some interesting companions with her on a recent trip to India. Anna writes...

Books are my escape. They have always teleported me into a more interesting, exciting world than my own. I read when I was happy, I read when I was sad, I read when I was anxious, I read when I was bored. So, it was inevitable that I would take three of the school library’s books with me when I went on my trip to India. The journey there took more than 2 days, and most airports and my grandparent’s home deep in the hilly rainforest area of south India didn’t have Wi-Fi so all I had to entertain myself were my books.

n the journey to India, I was engrossed in the world of A good girl’s guide to murder. I was there alongside Pip, working out how she would unravel Andie’s secrets and prove the generous and kind Sal innocent. During my trip, I entered the pages of Endgame, the last book in the Noughts and Crosses series. The social and political problem displayed in the book that linked to what happened in the real world made for an interesting read. Finally, on the final bit of my trip, I read about the different worlds in The Amber Spyglass, the final book in the His Dark Materials series. The hard work of Lyra and Will, the help from their friends and the dilemma at the end of the book really took me on an emotional rollercoaster.

Together, me and these books have travelled around 9500 miles. These books kept me entertained, happy and enthusiastic through the whole of my trip and I highly recommend all these books to you.
