my book review

                                         Tom Gates

i liked Tom Gates because. i have read some of the others and how it talks about toms life . its a good book because i like these types off book .I really like the cover to its got some cool drawing and images.  I also like the way the book is layed out. and how all of the books have his life. but they put parts of the story in different books. the main characters are tom gates his mum and dad and  friends. one bit of his life. I liked was  when he comes home and toms dad already know about his detention. its funny because he didn't even get to tell his dad why he got detention before he even walked in the door

Read the article below and comment on whether the reporter’s statements are consistent with the survey data.
Which Social Media for Teens?

There has been a steady decline in the usage of Facebook, with all other social networks increasing in popularity.

writting

In writing I have been learning to:
  • use all basic punctuation independently
  • attempt more complex punctuation (eg semicolons, colons, parentheses)


I have been especially focussing on using parentheses and commas. I have highlighted these in green where I have used them as well as other punctuation that I changed because it was used incorrectly. Here is a piece of my writing that shows this.
