Hey!

The syllabus specifies that you must do at least three of the board approved texts.
In the exam, we only have to write about two of these, and two of our related material (right?)

How many texts are you studying in school? Two, Three or Four? I know a couple of schools doing four - TBS, TRIH, SBTS and Anil's Ghost.

:)

Lol!
Why anyone would want to, willingly, do Anil's Ghost, is beyond me.
If she hasn't started it yet, warn her against it. :D

I actually quite enjoyed the text "Anil's Ghost", as I was required to read it due to our teacher desiring to cover all the possible content. It was good I thought because apart from the Real Inspector Hound, everything else was so expected but this seemed to lend a new viewpoint.

So, are you going to be doing it as part of your board approved reading then?

We are doing all of the prescribed texts within class as our teacher wants us prepared as well as can be. So we are doing Anil's Ghost, Skull Beneath the Skin, The Real Inspector Hound and the Big Sleep.

If only Snow Falling on Cedars was still on the syllabus...
we read that in year 11 as part of our "romance genre" study.. but i think my teacher was secretly getting us ready for crime fiction :)
