BOOK OF THE WEEK
Here is another great book recommendation this week
The Night Bus Hero, by Onjali Q. Rauf
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..
