Weekend Reading

This Friday's book review comes from Jennifer, 12, in Bethseda, Maryland.

"Hi! I love to read and The Golden Compass, which I just finished, really caught my attention.

Philip Pullman’s first book in the His Dark Materials series is about a girl named Lyra who lives in a parallel universe. Lyra, lives at Jordan College, in Oxford. She does not know of her parents or anything about her family. One person she does know of is her Uncle Asriel. He is always on journeys north so she sees him very little over the course of her life. Lyra is curious to find out what her Uncle is doing on these trips. Lyra is very anxious to go north and have an adventure or two like her Uncle Asriel. Read about her adventures and true fate to see what the world Lyra lives in is all about!"
