INCARCERON/SAPPHIQUE

 “Incarceron´´
by Catherine Fisher

Finn, is a seventeen year old prisoner, that can only remember the past three years of his life. Finn has the wild belief that he wasn’t born within Incarceron, like the other inmates, but instead has really come of the Outside. This belief has led him to wild dreams of escaping Incarceron and proving everyone that there really is an Outside and that he really did come from there.

On the Outside, is a young girl, Claudia. She is the daughter to the Warden of Incarceron and is stuck in an arranged marriage to the future king.

As fate would have it, Claudia and Finn separately find a crystal key that allows them to communicate with each other. Claudia agrees to help Finn escape from Incarceron. Although she find it hard to believe that anyone would want to leave Incarceron, the people Outside have been told that Incarceron is a paradise of sorts, so it’s hard to believe that anyone would want to leave such a place.

“Sapphique´´
by Catherine Fisher

Finn has escaped from the terrible living Prison of Incarceron, but its memory torments him, because his brother Keiro is still inside. Outside, Claudia insists he must be king, but Finn doubts even his own identity. Is he the lost prince Giles? Or are his memories no more than another construct of his imprisonment? And can you be free if your friends are still captive?
Inside Incarceron, has the crazy sorcerer Rix really found the Glove of Sapphique, the only man the Prison ever loved. Sapphique, whose image fires Incarceron with the desire to escape its own nature.
If Keiro steals the Glove of Sapphique, will he bring destruction to the world? Who know the answer. Inside. Outside. All seeking freedom. Like Sapphique.

ALLEGIANT

Book Review
“Allegiant´´
 the third and final book from Divergent trilogy
 
Review:

Tris has revealed the secret that her faction, Abnegation, has been killed for, broadcasting the shocking truth to all within the city’s walls: 

The factions were created in the city of Chicago in order to cure the corruption and chaos of the world outside. The Divergent are not a problem that need to be killed, but an indicator of strength – when those identified as Divergent increase in number, the city’s walls are to be opened, and the city’s wisdom is to be shared with the outside world.
This truth, however, comes at a great cost. Tris’s home city is in chaos, the factions – those carefully ordered and selected tribes based on dominant personality traits – are no more. After opposing the Erudite, the Factionless led by Tobias’s mother, Evelyn, have taken over the city and their rule is as absolute as it is Evelyn’s new rule is filled with unrest, however, a new rebellion brews – the “Allegiant” are recruiting, and they want Tris and Tobias to join their cause and venture beyond the city walls
What Tris and her friends find beyond Chicago’s borders, however, will once again upend everything they thought they knew about their world. The world is much larger than they ever could have imagined; the truth of the factions, of the founding of the city, of their very way of life, is not what it seems. 
Once again, Tris must make a choice. Once again, everything will change.

My name is August.
I won’t describe what I look like.
Whatever you’re thinking,
It’s probably worse.
“Has the power to move hearts and change minds” – Guardian
“It’s well writing, engaging, and so much fun to read that the pages almost turn themselves. More than that, Wonder touches the heart in the most life-affirming, unexpected way, delivering in August Pullman a character whom readers will remember forever. Do yourself a favour and read this book – your life will be better for it” – Nicholas Sparks
“A powerful read… Likely to become a huge hit with readers of all ages” – Stylist
August Pullman was born with a facial deformity that prevented him from going to a mainstream school until now. He started 5thgrade at Beecher Prep where nobody had ever seen anything similar to August’s face and this makes more difficult his adaptation.
In this book you can find how difficult the life is when you are a bit different from the rest of the people. You instantly love August, he is a really sweet and cute boy, he is normal but only a few people can see the real August under his face
I don’t want to say so much about this book because I think that its real secret is hidden under its reading and so discover the hard of the life and obviously, think about bullying in the schools. I believe that this story would be perfect for our classes.
