by Stephen Kelman  


This book is about the life of an 11 year old boy called Harrison Opuku, who came over to the UK from Ghana with  his mother and 14 year old sister called Lydia for a better life.The whole book is being narrated by Harrison in his own voice, he is a very naive and childish character and has a very distinctive choice of words which are sometimes quite funny. The book highlights what life would be like living on a council estate and how vunerable children like Harrison are to the dangers around him.

The book reminded us all about the sad story of 10 year Damilola Tailor who sadly was killed on the council estate where he lived.

score 8.5/10


This was a very heart warming book, which proved to be quite popular amongst our book club members, it is a true story written from the heart. When the auther Mitch Albom gets reconnected with his old college professor Morrie Schwatz after many years, Mitch discovers that Morrie is suffering with a condition called ALS otherwise known as Motor Neorones Desease and Mitch feels incredibly guilty for having lost touch with Morrie for so many years. They rekindle their friendship and arrange for Mitch to visit Morrie every Tuesday for lessons in his home, Morrie teaches Mitch lessons in Phylosophy etc his stories are so uplifting  and on a very spiritual level from a dieing man. Mitch visits Morrie until his dieing days. This book is very sad, yet teaches us all alot of lessons and makes you really think and puts things into perspective, a very well written book.

This was a story about a couple of newly weds Holy and Tom, who move into there dream home, soon after they move in they embark on a moon dial in the garden that lay undiscovered under an over growth of shrubs. Holy also discovers a box which contains an orb which belongs to the moon dial. One evening after taking a little walk down to the garden Holy discovers that the moon dial has a special power of Showing Holy her future, a future which is not good, and Holy has a few very important decisions to make. I wont go too much more into the story as I dont want to ruin the story for you.





by Kathryn Stockett 
score 8/10


This was a much loved book amongst our members, a beautifully written book set in the 1960's in Jackson Mississippi about the life of African-American Nannys/maids looking after the children and households of white families, chapter by chapter narrated by each of  the characters with their fabulous African-American accents, the book highlights how these maids are constantly miss treated  and the rascism they encounter, yet they continue to love the children and bring them up fondly and manage to hold their own families together. A very heart warming book with characters come alive and grow to love, a book you dont want to put down, and a book you never want to end!
