The Lovely Bones - Coming to the SRR

Hi girls,

Every day a girl asks me if we have The Lovely Bones. I'm not sure what has happened but this is the most requested book since Twilight. Well, Poison Study is also highly requested, but I think Lovely Bones is number one.

We have one (or two?) copies of The Lovely Bones in the SRR but it is being read by one of my students right now. Keep your eyes open for it.

Anyway, due to popular demand, I have just ordered three new copies fresh from book depository. The books should arrive in two to three weeks.

If you would like to be one of the first girls to read "The Lovely Bones" all you need to do is add a comment to this post. Put your name and your class. The first three girls to put their names on the list get to read the books when they arrive and then the other girls will be waitlisted and can read them as they get returned to me.

Alice Sebold would be so proud!

If you have seen the movie, could you write a short review in the comments section? I'd like to know if it is good - you know I'm a big Peter Jackson fan! I still want to read the book first, but I was so close to getting the DVD last week.

Mr. Jason, the reading room has a copy of 'The truth about forever' by Sarah Dessen, right? Is it currently being read by somebody?

Who is Mr. Jason? said...

Hi Hafizzah. No worries. We'll get you a copy right away! I hope you are right about the movie. I want to see it in March too! If not I will have to watch the DVD. A lot of movies don't seem to be making it here. :-(

Hi Najeeha! Sakina, a former STPRI student from 5C, has The Truth About Forever - I think you know her from debate, right? I have asked her to return it when she comes for her o-level marks which should be this week. I'll send her another note to remind her!
