"The Screaming Mean Machine" by Joy Cowley.
Pheonix from Room 16 has been reading this story and Lorenz from Room 18 is his DJ. This is a story about a girl who loves going on the rides at an amusement park, but has had to wait until she grew tall enough to go on the roller coaster - which is something most kids can relate to. This is the year when she gets to ride on it and we hear about the fun and excitement of the ride.
Pheonix says: "I've been to Rainbow's End about 9 times and my favourite ride is the roller coaster. It was a great book to read because it brought back good memories..."
Lorenx says, "This would be a really great book for people to read. If you want to go to Rainbow's End in Year 6, keep on working hard."
