Actress Saoirse Ronan, who plays a precocious young writer in Joe Wright's Atonement, shares her favorite literary works.
The Secret of Platform Thirteen
I like it because there's a BIG twist at the end, which I love, because you really have to think about what's going on and what happened earlier on in the book. And, of course, it has a happy ending!
I love this also because it has a twist. It also tells you the history of where the book is set. It's one of those books where, if one thing didn't happen, there wouldn't be a story.
It's a very beautiful book, it's kind of like the making of fairytales! But yet, the main character doesn't really enjoy her life at home.
City of Ember
It's full of adventure, excitement and wonder! You're following Lina and Doon on an adventure that can change their lives and others. It also sends out a very good message about what might happen if we don't treat planet Earth the way it should be treated.
Is about twins, who everyone thinks is the same, but they and everyone else realises they are completely different.
