Can't believe nobody here has mentioned the inclusion of the term 'Mandingo' in Text Three.

Had me in stitches throughout reading time.

Did anyone else really stuggle to figure out what the third text in the Reading Task meant? I read that and was like wtf? I could not understand the last bit at all!

I chuckled to myself when I saw Papa. Made me feel a bit calmer.

I sorta understood the start.. the ending (well the second page of it) i fully ignored lol
The last text i didnt really have time to read over it either so... im hoping i can get a 9/15 (didn't attempt the last question and wrote the stupidest crap for the 2nd last question)
Oh and for the book cover.. i didn't read any of the blurb stuff. I only read the 'when a child is lost another is found' or something... so i just wrote about belonging rather than not belonging -__-
