HI
So you have stumbled upon my little haven full of thoughtless words and thoughtful randomness. I stopped blogging for one whole year in 2014 and now I am back on track, trying to get back my writing skills XD I blog about my school and share my love of music, designing and nailart (fangirl alert there~).

It would be amazing to read your comments on my post and I would certainly write back to you if you have your blog URL in the comment ^^ Thank you for visiting and enjoy reading!

[BOOKS] THE CURSE, CATCH US IF YOU CAN

Apart from the novels that I am reading right now, I have added these two novels into the list because I need to reread it again before I teach my students for their Form 5 Literature Component. There is another one which  is Step By Wicked Step but I haven't found the book. I learnt different novel component when I was in form 5 (The Pearl) so I have no knowledge at all about all the three books, although I have read Catch Us if You Can once (speed-reading, finished it in 20 minutes) because I need to teach the Hostel students before their trial exam. 





Synopsis of The Curse:
The story revolves aroun Azreen, her parents and sister, Madhuri. Azreen, a strict, hot-tempered girl is studying in London when she needs to come back home after receiving the news about the death of her sister. When she arrived, the body has already been burried. She wants to know the cause of the death, but no one wants to tell her, and at the same time, the village gossiper, Puan Normala was spreading a rumour that her sister was found dead, covered in white blood.

Throughout the novel, Azreen discovered a lot about so many things, which finally leads to the discovery of the person behind her sister's death. She faced so many emotional challenge during his stay, but she learnt a lot about the secrets - dark and truth about people around her.

Synopsis of Catch Us If You Can
It is story of a devoted grandson and loving grandfather. There is adventure and thrilling chase and escape which bring about many interesting moments for both Rory and grandfather. We feel as we read of a grandfather who is sent to the old people’s home and his grandson to the children’s home, a separation that is extremely difficult for both of them. Rory and his grandfather, Granda, have looked after each other since Rory’s dad walked out on them. Granda is given to lapses in memory (putting Rory’s homework down the rubbish chute and the rubbish in Rory’s school bag) and completely irresponsible behaviour (setting fire to his coat at a Parents’ Evening), but he has a generous heart. Rory acts as his carer until there is a fire in the flat and the authorities decide to separate them. Rory comes up with an escape plan. But their path of escape is not easy as their pictures are in the newspapers and on every television screen. Their journey is full of unexpected moments when it looks like they will be caught by the authorities.

His Granda however is very frail and needs a lot of medication. On the way they meet a lot of people who have recognised them from the news. These people have actually helped them in their venture. Rory and his Granda travelled by train, boat, caravan, cars and most of the time with their feet. In the end, sadly, Rory has to end the venture, but not by being caught, he actually had to go to the police to find help for his Granda, whose heart had stopped. Rory had been hoping that his father who had abandoned the family and whom he has no seen for the last ten years would reach out and help. The story ends on a happy note when Rory’s dad gets in touch with him due to the publicity.
I hope I can finish reading both books by tomorrow~
