‘The Kite Runner’ by Khaled Hosseini
The Kite runner takes the readers back to Kabul in the mid-1970’s as we are introduced to tones of memory and nostalgia with a desire from the author to recreate the main character, Amir. Amir’s childhood takes the reader through an exciting journey and description of Kabul’s culture and fresh perspective. Khaled Hosseini’s incredibly descriptive point of view and his storytelling shows us how interesting and exciting the start of the book starts to pick up on. We are excited for the future of the book as we begin to wonder the future for all the characters including Amir and Hassan. Yet we are unfortunately reminded by the narrative and time period set that the tone of the introduction may not follow throughout the story. But we are itching to read the next chapter!

Well-being Top Tips
The coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic is affecting all our lives. Many of us are struggling with how it's affecting ourselves and our loved ones. Those of us already living with mental health problems are facing extra challenges too.
However, there are some simple things that you can do to look after your mental health, either by yourself or with other people. Here is our well-being mentor’s tip of the week for looking after yourself:
Surround yourself with good people
People with strong family or friend connections are generally healthier than those who lack a support network. The people in your support network can help you through moments that feel more difficult, even if you don't want help from others, just knowing you have support there can ease a number of negative feelings.
Where current COVID-19 restrictions allow, make plans with supportive family members and friends, or seek out activities where you can meet new people, such as a clubs, classes or support groups.
