“A fever nightmare of epically queer proportions.”

—Mark Oshiro, author of Anger Is a Gift

Reverie

Inception meets The Magicians in this wildly imaginative story about what happens when the secret worlds people hide within themselves come to light.

All Kane Montgomery knows for certain is that the police found him half-dead in the river. He can’t remember anything since an accident robbed him of his memories a few weeks ago. And the world feels different—reality itself seems different.

So when three of his classmates claim to be his friends and the only people who can tell him what’s truly going on, he doesn’t know what to believe or who he can trust. But as he and the others are dragged into unimaginable worlds that materialize out of nowhere—the gym warps into a subterranean temple, a historical home nearby blooms into a Victorian romance rife with scandal and sorcery—Kane realizes that nothing in his life is an accident, and only he can stop their world from unraveling.

Grusel, Spannung und Liebe in der Aula – Freude beim Umgang mit Literatur beim diesjährigen Vorlesewettbewerb

Am 5.12. fand in der Aula der diesjährige Vorlesewettbewerb der S1 Klassen statt. Dafür hatten sich in den Klassen bereits im Vorfeld jeweils 2 Schüler qualifiziert, so dass insgesamt 10 Kinder gegeneinander antreten konnten. In der Aula herrschte eine gemütliche Atmosphäre, da auch alle Klassenkameraden eingeladen waren, dem Ereignis beizuwohnen. Die Kandidaten machten es der Jury (Fr. Kirmse, Fr. Dr. Schmitt, Hr. Gumpp) nicht leicht, einen Schulsieger zu ermitteln, da alle auf einem sehr hohen Niveau vorlasen. Schlussendlich wurde aber folgende Platzierung festgelegt:

3. Platz Mina H. (S1deb) mit „Billionen – Boy“ (David Williams)

2. Platz Fabrice F. (S1dec) mit „Animox. Stadt der Haie“ (Aimee Carter)

Format: ebook & audiobook

Over the course of one night, two girls with two very different backgrounds must rely on each other to get through the violent race riot that has enveloped their city.

Lena has her killer style, her awesome boyfriend, and a plan. She knows she’s going to make it big. Campbell, on the other hand, is just trying to keep her head down and get through the year at her new school.

When both girls attend the Friday-night football game, what neither expects is for everything to descend into sudden mass chaos. Chaos born from violence and hate. Chaos that unexpectedly throws them together.

They aren’t friends. They hardly understand the other’s point of view. But none of that matters when the city is up in flames, and they only have each other to rely on if they’re going to survive the night.

Recommended age 12 and up

Time to vote : Book Cover 2018

Final round of our Book Cover Competition 2018 has arrived. This week all students of PP-P2 and P3-P5 will vote for their favourite book cover. A hard choice to make but by the end of the week we will know more …

Die Finalrunde des Buchtitel Wettbewerbs 2018 ist da. In dieser Woche werden alle Schüler der PP-P2 und P3-P5 ihrem Favoriten ihreStimme geben. Keine leichte Wahl, aber am Ende der Woche werden wir mehr wissen …

It’s all about stories & books

There is always something special to see or do in Primary School: National Holidays are being celebrated, an exhibition about The Middle Ages, authors are visiting and soon books will be in the spotlight even more than they already are.

In the weeks to come children will be looking into fairy tales, work on storytelling and the covers of the books will be of bigger interest than they usually are. This was the case when P1ENB came to the school library, yesterday. Children had been asked to think about what makes a good book cover, picked one book with an interesting cover and were happy to reason their choice during check out. After the holidays the children will hand in the book covers they have designed and vote for their favourite to enter the race for best book cover of the year group. The finalists will be displayed in the library where all students can ballot for “Book Cover 2018”

On 26 April the winners of the storytelling-, dress up- (as your favourite character) and book cover competition will be announced at the end of World Book week.

In der Primarschule gibt es immer etwas Besonderes zu sehen oder zu tun: Nationalfeiertage werden gefeiert, eine Ausstellung zum Mittelalter, Autorenbesuche und schon bald werden Bücher noch mehr im Fokus stehen, als sie es ohnehin schon tun.

Während der folgenden Wochen werden die Schüler sich mit Märchen und Geschichtenerzählen beschäftigen und die Titelbilder der Bücher werden von größerer Bedeutung sein als sonst. Das konnte man im Falle der Erstklässler der P1ENB sehen, als sie gestern in der Schulbibliothek waren. Zunächst überlegten sich die Kinder, was ein gutes Titelbild ausmacht, suchten sich ein Buch mit interessantem Cover aus und erklärten beim Ausleihen freudig die Gründe für ihre Wahl. Nach den Ferien werden die Kinder das schönste, selbst gestaltete Titelbild ihrer Klasse wählen, das sie ins Rennen um den Titel der Jahrgangsstufe schicken. Die Finalisten werden in der Bibliothek präsentiert, wo die Schüler das Titelbild des Jahres 2018 wählen.

Am 26. April werden dann die Gewinner des Erzähl-, Verkleide- und Buchtitel-Wettbewerbs verkündet; zum Ende der “Welttag des Buches” Woche.

Patrice Lawrence / by Saina V.

Patrice Lawrence

On the 7th of March 2018 the author Patrice Lawrence visited the European School RheinMain and presented her book “Orange Boy” to the students of the 10th grade.

The author didn’t only present her book, but she also spent some time telling us about her life and how she became an author. Personally, I thought that was the best part of her visit, as she had lived a unique life and she grew up in a multicultural, unusual family. Patrice Lawrence was born in Sussex, and was brought up in an Italian-Trinidadian family, which isn’t the kind of family I have ever heard about before. The writer has been in extraordinary situations which she spent a short amount of time telling us about, which all added up to why she became a writer, and why she writes fiction novels. She told us about how she was at the winter wonderland carnival in London, which inspired her and many more instances which inspired her to write fiction novels.

She made a PowerPoint presentation with pictures of her life, starting from the beginning until now. The author told us about her family and applied her story and onto the characters in her book, she added why the boy in “orange boy” has a dysfunctional family, and that is because the boy wants something different. She read out a few pages from Orange Boy and told us about how it was difficult to write as a teenage boy, however the writer managed to do it very well which the students were impressed by.

Patrice Lawrence then added that she had constant support from her daughter, who inspired her and always gave her new ideas. She also mentioned that when she does not write, she feels as if she has too many thoughts and can’t think properly. She felt as if she had too many tabs open in her brain, which was hard to understand at first but started to make a lot sense towards the end. The fact that the author was so open and real with us is what caught my attention and made me want to know more about her, and the story behind her novel.

The writer told us about the importance of names, furthermore she asked us what our names meant which got us to think the ways she does and understand the meaning behind names. In general, the author inspired me to think in a different, more creative way.

To conclude, the students also enjoyed learning about the process of publishing a book and what it`s like to be a writer.
