BOOK OF THE WEEK

Here is another great book recommendation this week

The Night Bus Hero, by Onjali Q. Rauf

The Night Bus Hero

Told from the point of view of a bully who decides that he wants to be a hero.

I’ve been getting into trouble for as long I can remember. Usually I don’t mind ‘cos some of my best, most brilliant ideas have come from sitting in detention.

But recently it feels like no one believes me about anything – even when I’m telling the truth! And it’s only gotten worse since I played a prank on the old man who lives in the park. Everyone thinks I’m just a bully. They don’t believe I could be a hero.

But I’m going to prove them all wrong..
