"People say 'If there's a God why is there all this horrible stuff in the world?' Changing the subject, but Imagine one birthday someone gave you a camera and you broke it. It's not the present giver's fault, is it? Now imagine one day someone gave you a planet... All I'm trying to say is, take some responsibility. You can start by switching of the TV you aren't even watching." Hi, I'm Silverjay (I dreamt it up) I love to write because I love reading. At seven I was reading Tracy Beaker and other Jacqueline Wilson books. My three favourite today are Hetty Feather, Lola Rose and Kiss. Within three years I had read most of them. I started my mum's copy of Heidi and it became my new favourite book. Other classics I love are Anne of Green Gables, White Fang, Ballet Shoes and Watership Down. When I was 11 I read the Chronicles of Ancient Darkness series by Michelle Paver and Nation, the first Terry Pratchett book I ever read. My favourite one by him is The Amazing Maurice and his Educated Rodents. Authors I like now are Terry Pratchett (still), Geraldine McCaughrean and Michelle Magorian. The Kite Rider by said McCaughrean I would reccomend even if you are too 'old' for childrens books (which I must be now :( ). Michelle Magorian wrote Goodnight Mister Tom which is quite famous and very good but her Just Henry is the best book I have ever read in my life. My favourite poems are the 'practical' cat poems by T.S. Eliot. I have no favourite genre though avoid the popular books for my age group deliberately. Other interests are Drama, (acting, not really singing or dancing much.) Tomb Raider (when I was little I was allowed on the training levels but I play them properly now) and cats. I have two: Oscar, a black cat with a slightly funny walk from an injury as a kitten who is always hungry and Lola, his younger sister a tortoiseshell and very sweet. A Monster Calls is the best book I've ever read! It's recently won the carnegie medal too. I AM A GIRL.
