Mrs Gidden's cool readers club - Alexis
14 May 2019
Priory’s Head of English, Mrs Gidden, has been really impressed with many of our multi-talented pupils lately and wanted to highlight their love of reading while excelling at other pursuits.
This week we interviewed Year 8 pupil, Alexis.
Alexis can cook up a treat in between her reading.
Alexis is one of Mrs Gidden’s Cool Readers and is currently enjoying ‘Turtles All The Way Down’ by John Green.
“It’s about a girl with anxiety who tries to find out about a guy who is missing, it’s her old friend’s dad and she is trying to find out what has happened.
“John Green is my favourite author, I liked ‘The Fault In Our Stars.’”
Alexis is interested in psychology and sociology: “I would like to explore people’s minds and solve crimes, that’s something I would like to do in the future.”
In the meantime, when not reading, Alexis admits cooking keeps her occupied. “It is just a hobby but I do a lot of baking with my mum. I like baking homely things like apple pies and scones.”
