  1. 1. Teen Reading Challenge: sugestões de leitura TITLE SYNOPSIS STAGE From Botswana to New Zealand, from Jamaica to Nigeria, from Uganda to Malaysia, from India to South Africa, these moving stories show us that the human heart is the same in every place. Children, wives, mothers, husbands, friends all have the same feelings of fear and pain, happiness and sadness. Stage 2 “I like work. I find it interesting…I can sit and look at it for hours.” With ideas like this, perhaps it is not a good idea to spend a holiday taking a boat trip up the River Thames. But this is what the three friends – and Montmorency the dog – decide to do. It is the sort of holiday that is fun to remember afterwards, but not so much fun to wake up to early on a cold, wet morning. Stage 4
  2. 2. “I wish I could get through into looking-glass house,” Alice said. “Let’s pretend that the glass has gone soft and …Why, I do believe it has! It’s turning into a kind of cloud!” A moment later Alice is inside the looking-glass world. There she finds herself part of a great game of chess, travelling through forests and jumping across brooks. The chess pieces talk and argue with her, give orders and repeat poems… It is the strangest dream that anyone ever had… Stage 3 “Suddenly, there was a high voice screaming in the darkness: “Pieces of eight! Pieces of eight! Pieces of eight!” It was Long John silver’s parrot, Captain Flint! I turned to run…” But young Jim Hawkins does not escape from the pirates this time. Will he and his friends find the treasure before the pirates do? Will they escape from the island, and sail back to England with a ship full of gold? Stage 4 Life in the small English town of Cranford seems very quiet and peaceful. The ladies of Cranford lead tidy, regular lives they make their visits between the hours of twelve and three, give little evening parties, and worry about their maid-servants. But life is not always smooth – there are little arguments and jealousies, sudden deaths and unexpected marriages… Mrs Gaskell’s timeless picture of small-town life in the first half of the nineteenth century has delighted readers for nearly 150 years. Stage 4
  3. 3. “Soon I felt something alive moving along my leg and up my body to my face, and when I looked down, I saw a very small human being, only fifteen centimetres tall…I was so surprised that I gave a great shout.” But that is only the first of many surprises which Gulliver has on his travels. He visits a land of giants and a flying island, meets ghosts from the past and horses which talk… Stage 4 Careful, Connie, please. Your little sister’s eyes are looking angry. Look at the sudden lines around her mouth. Connie, a sister is a good thing. Even a young sister. “Mercy, who are you going out with?” Connie gets an answer to her question, but it is not the answer she wants to hear. And what is the price of peace between sisters? Bookworms World Stories collects stories written in English from around the world. This volume has stories from sierra leone, Ghana, Zimbabwe and Nigeria, by African writers Abioseh Nicol, Ken Lipenga, Ama Ata Aidoo, Paul Tiyambe Zeleza, and Sefi Atta. Stage 4 Three different parts of the world, but all of them dangerous, lonely places. Three different women, but all of them determined to go – and to come back alive! Robyn Davidson walked nearly 3,000 kilometres across the Australian desert – with a dog and four camels. Arlene Blum led a team of ten women to the top of Annapurna – one of the highest mountains in the world. Only eight came down again. Naomi James sailed around the world alone, on a journey lasting more than 250 days. Three real adventures – three nearly adventurous women. Stage 4
  4. 4. Chief inspector Morse is drinking a pint of beer. He is thinking about an attractive woman who lives not far away. The woman he is thinking of is dead, from the ceiling of her kitchen. On the floor lies a chair, almost two metres away from the woman’s feet. Chief Inspector Morse finishes his pint, and orders another. Perhaps he will visit Anne, after all. But he is in no particular hurry. Meanwhile, Anne is still hanging in her kitchen, waiting for the police to come and cut her down. She is in no hurry, either. Stage 5 “I don’t know that you have done anything wrong.” Miss Hepplewhite said. “But it is possible that you have done something rather dangerous.” William and Susie thought they were just playing a game when they cooked a witch’s brew in the old barn and said a spell over it, but Martha was not so sure. And indeed, the three friends soon learn that they have called up something dark and evil out of the distant past… Stage 4 Victor Frankenstein thinks he has found the secret of life. He takes parts from dead people and builds a new “man”. But this monster is so big and frightening that everyone runs away from him – even Frankenstein himself! The monster is like an enormous baby who needs love, and soon he learns to hate. And, because he is so strong, the next thing he learns is to kill… Stage 3
  5. 5. An English rose garden on a summer’s day. A small boy watches with interest as his great-aunt cuts the deadheads off the rosebushes with a sharp knife. What could be more peaceful, more harmless? Young Patrick grows up to be a calm, pleasant man, with a good job, a wife and two children, and the best rose garden for miles around. When somebody tells the police that Patrick Aldermann is killing people, Chief Superintendent Dalziel thinks it’s probably all nonsense. But Inspector Pascoe is not so sure… Stage 6 A mysterious incident at the Marabar Caves, involving Adela Quested, newly arrived from England, and the charming Dr. Aziz, an Indian doctor, leads to a drama that divides the British and Indian communities in anger, distrust and fear. Foster’s great novel about India during British rule brings to life all the dangers and misunderstandings of colonialism but, as Foster himself wrote, the story is about something wider than politics, about the search of the human race for a more lasting home, about the universe as embodied in the Indian earth and the Indian sky, about the horror lurking in the Marabar caves…” Stage 6 Biblioteca da Escola Secundária de Santa Maria Maior - 2015/16
