Will Goddard - Water source - Written by a 10 year old boy
This is a great short story written by a 10 year old boy.
I really enjoyed reading this story; I get a sense he has travelled a lot and this brings the story to life. Overall it has a great plot which keeps the reader interested in the story. And I as I said, only 10 years old.
PLEASE READ IT AND LET US KNOW WHAT YOU THINK?
The charismatic new leader of Britain, Gavin King has been elected on a ticket to clean up the country and give money back to the people. But soon the new regime is executing all criminals and throwing any protestors in jail yet still the streets are full of cheering supporters. James' parents, are investigative journalists and they know something is up, but then they are thrown in jail and it is up to James to find out what is going on.
Will Goddard is nearly 11 years old. He was born on Valentine’s Day 1998, some 17 weeks premature gaining him a Guinness Certificate for being Britain’s earliest surviving baby. Having battled through his first difficult years he showed an early love of reading, a skill he developed by reading the subtitles on television programmes. He has travelled a lot and particularly loves Asia.
Why he wrote this book
I started the book by writing a chapter for homework. My family all said it was really good and wanted to know what happened next, so I carried on from there and eventually it turned.
