Smiles to go is a book about the everyday life of a nineth-grade boy named Will Tuppence and problems he faces with his family, love life, school, and friends. His opinions and feelings about his life are events that happened to every reader. When I read this book, I feel like Will and I have the same opinion about many things, and this makes me feel like I am a character in this book. One thing I can relate to very much is that Will always thinks that his parents love his sister more, so he always complains about how unfair life is but nobody listens to him. This reminds of my grandparents and my little sister because I would complain to my parents, but they don’t listen to me either, so I know how he feels. Even though there are many things I can relate to in this book, I think there are two elements I don't like about this book. The first element is that there is not enough action in this book, so it’s a little boring. Most actions are about skateboard and very normal events that everyone does. The second element is that the author didn’t write enough detail to describe the characters‘ appearances, so the characters do not feel real because I can’t imagine what they look like. I don’t recommend to the peopel who want a lot of action and surprises in the book. I do recommend it to teens enjoy reading about things that could happen to them.
