The Glengarry News - - News - Asked at Tagwi

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.
