Yay, we have lots of new books coming to the SRR in the next few weeks.
First of all, Peta ordered a nice new copy of what looks like an amazing book that one a prize at The Times. It's Incarceron by Catherine Fisher.
Here is the blurb:
Imagine a living prison so vast that it contains corridors and forests, cities and seas. Imagine a prisoner with no memory, who is sure he came from Outside, even though the prison has been sealed for centuries and only one man, half real, half legend, has ever escaped.
Imagine a girl in a manor house in a society where time has been forbidden, where everyone is held in a seventeenth century world run by computers, doomed to an arranged marriage that appals her, tangled in an assassination plot she both dreads and desires.
One inside, one outside
But both imprisoned.
Imagine a war that has hollowed the moon, seven skullrings that contain souls, a flying ship and a wall at the world's end.
Imagine the unimaginable.
That sounds interesting, doesn't it?
Peta has also sent us a couple of other books. One is a very cool picture book called A Shakespearean Theater which I think all the lit students are going to enjoy. I know I like it a lot. She also sent a book by Robin Sharma called "Discover Your Destiny" which was a request from a girl in one of the other classes ( I think Miss Karen is her teacher) and I hope I'm able to find her so she can take the book out.
Thanks again Peta for your generosity! It's always amazing to get your lovely packages with all the Spongebob stickers on them. BTW, you are still famous! The bulletin board at our school continues to get a lot of attention!
