Mailbox Monday

mmb-300x282

Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week.

It was created by Marcia @ A Girl and Her Books but now has a permanent home here

 

Only one for me this week and it's my current read:

 

The Girl With All The Gifts by M.R. Carey 

 

 

The Girl With All The GiftsMelanie is a very special girl. Dr Caldwell calls her 'our little genius'.

Every morning, Melanie waits in her cell to be collected for class. When they come for her, Sergeant keeps his gun pointing at her while two of his people strap her into the wheelchair. She thinks they don't like her. She jokes that she won't bite, but they don't laugh.

Melanie loves school. She loves learning about spelling and sums and the world outside the classroom and the children's cells. She tells her favourite teacher all the things she'll do when she grows up. Melanie doesn't know why this makes Miss Justineau look sad.

  6. I'm curious to know why they are in cells. And why her dreams are making the teacher sad. I hope what I'm thinking isn't what it is.
