As we just observed Freedom to Read Week, we asked students about their favourite books.
Jaxson Payment, Grade 12:
I quite enjoyed Red Rising by Pierce Brown. It’s a good science fiction story that you can just kind of escape into.
Jameson Smith, Grade 12:
1984 by George Orwell. It captivated me. It changed my views on society and gave me some insight as to what we should avoid.
Connor MacMilla, Grade 13:
The Road by Cormac McCarthy. It’s a different take as to what could happen if we keep doing things the same way.
Mia Marsolais, Grade 10:
To Kill a Mockingbird. I like the drama in it.
Haziq Hisham, Grade 12:
I’d say 1984. It’s a dystopian novel that presents some issues that parallel our modern society.
Maylee Larkin, Grade 10:
Either the Lord of the Rings or Harry Potter. I am a fantasy fan and I prefer the movies to the books.
