Synopsis

Century 5-6 Reader by Sarah Singleton

The Hodder Reading Project Level 5-6 identifies blocks to progression and takes pupils from National Curriculum Level 5 to Level 6. It comprises the Teacher's Resource and the 6 Readers. Reader 1, Level 5, Century by Sarah Singleton. Waking at sun-down and falling asleep at sun-rise, sisters Mercy and Charity are trapped in an eternal winter, every day the same as the last. But one night Mercy wakes to find a single snowdrop on her pillow: a sign of spring, light and other life. An encounter with the mysterious Claudius awakens memories of a happier time and leads Mercy to travel through the four circles of time her father has created to protect his daughters - each circle capturing a significant day in the family's past. As she does so, she weakens the reality of the eternal winter day of her present but it's the only way to reveal the truth of her family's secret and unlock an unpredictable yet hopeful future for her and her sister.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
