TY Book Recommendations 8

Cameron Wood recommends The White Tiger by Aravind Adiga, which he has read for his Transition Year Extended Essay:

This was truly brilliant it showed us the side of India that we never see or hear about. It was the story of a man's struggle to make it up the ladder from servant to entrepreneur, but the story isn't that simple. What is fascinating is what he must do to get there, such as turn into a murderer, and and change his personality completely. Overall I thought it was a great boko and would highly recommend it.

Celine Klee has read A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks

This book is about how two people, who barely know each other but come to love each other, but then something happens that brings difficulty into their lives. The two main characters are Jamie Sullivan, a very Christian girl, whose mother died when she was a little girl and who loves her father, and a boy called Landon Carter, who is normally on the "cool" side.

This book is set in the 1960s and it is really well-written. I recommend this novel, because of its reality, the way it brings up emotions and because it is easy to read for people like me, whose native language is not English.
