No#3: Believe in yourself
The main characters in our book are Matt, Richard,
Mrs. Deverill. Horowitz develops these characters
very well to make them seem like real people.
"I hate it here. I hate this farm! I hate all of you!" This shows how Matt was angry and the way he dares to speak to adults like Miss Deverill. It also shows he wants to leave the farm. Matt is a kind of person that keeps things to himself - did not want to tell all about what had happened to him to Richard who was interested in journalistic reasons. Miss Deverill who was supposed to take care of Matt seemed very suspicious. Her cat Asmodeus - even more.
The sudden revive of the cad had caused Matt a lot of confusion.
"Matt Freeman knew he was making a mistake,"
- This sentences really hooks the reader because it is something quite odd to start of. The reader can ask easily: What mistake? And some other questions.
"...wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt, shapeless, faded jeans, and trainers with frayed laces," - The author describes the main character in detail mainly focusing here on his appearance.
The writer makes a clear description of the setting "He was sitting on a low wall outside Ipswich station,"

Our opinions: Everyone
Our opinions
Everybody in our group felt very positive about the book we read. We all felt the various techniques of the author used in the piece of writing used in all sorts of ways like description, action and many more. We talked over the book in our free time because it was amazing to read. We inquired about what will happen next in the book all willing and keen to find out. One moment has grabbed all our attention and it was when Sir Michael Marsh was sacrificing Matt. The way the author uses adverbs to make movement and adjectives to describe hooks our group's attention. But we don't think that it is only us that feel like that. We were very happy about the book we chose to read. We recommend
