Time= 85 minutes
Seven word summary=prison, trouble, true, gang, policeman, dead, bank

What do you think about rich get richer and poor stay poor??
= I think it’s bad because it’s not fair.

This story was boring. I couldn’t understand this book wants to tell me. I don’t want to recommend it.

I feel so sad for ned kelly , i think he was hero and brave, because he helped so many of the poor people, he see that the policemen help the rich people and he try to change it to make his town a better place, i hope i can read more books about his life.
I have heard of Ned Kelly but never knew his story. This adult literacy biography gave me the information I was lacking.
