    This is a book about animals taking place in a place by the farm. The main character is Mrs. Frisby. I really like her personality. She never gives up and has a lot of courage to save her son. I like this book because this book is about compassion and caring for each other. I really like where Mrs. Frisby meets challenges in her way but finds another way to go through or get around them. This is what I like about her character traits and personalities. I decided to read this book because this book was about animals. I recommend this book to people who love animals and adventure.

    This book is about a boy, Capricorn Anderson, who is homeschooled and lives with his grandma. But then he had to go to school, a place where he has never been to before. Capricorn met a lot of difficulties when he is in school. There were people making fun of him, but he learned to ignore them and did what he thinks is right. Later he influenced not just a few people, but the whole school, which I found amazing and fascinating about him. He was always kind and patient with other people, and this is what I like about his personalities. This is one of my favorite books of all because I learned a lot of stuff from it.

    I like this book because it talks about our behaviors to other people in school. It focuses on cyberbullying because Lilly was bullied by a group of people in her school. This book tells us to not hurt or harm other people, and cyberbullying is really bullying. Words and texts can hurt people’s feelings too. When we see people are bullying other people, when we see them we should put it to an end immediately. This book is about Zebby and Amr forming creating a website for the school. Then cyberbullying happened on the website, and the situation got worse and worse until Lilly, the person who was bullied, ran away from home. This book teaches us about what is right and what is wrong.

    This book is about Salamanca, a girl with a big imagination. I like this book because it gives me sad, happy and touching feelings when I read it. Also it talks about everything about Salamanca, because it doesn’t only focus on one small topic. There are a lot of twist and turns in the story, which surprises me. I love the characters in the story because all of them have special characteristics, and I love the way the author lets me picture the places where Salamanca goes to. This book made me read to the end, and all of the events in the story is going to make me remember them for a long time.

    This book is about an English fourteen year old girl who arrives in South Carolina to live with her uncle Robert because her father and mother died. She then struggles with life, love and her true identity in the American Revolutionary War. I chose this book because I wanted to learn about information of American Revolution, and I wanted to learn how writers blend made-up characters into historical events. I don’t recommend this book to you because you won’t want to read this book again if you read it once. It isn’t filled with adventure, not action-packed and it’s not addictive, so you wouldn’t finish off the book so quick.

    This book is about a girl/teen, Aerin, who is a princess and destined to fight dragons. This is a book full of adventure and gives me a lot of imagination. I enjoyed this really much mainly because I like dragons and I don’t know what will happen next. Every obstacle and difficulties she goes through makes me feel as if they are impossible. The parts where the author describes Aerin fighting the dragons causes my mouth to be out of order and unable to breathe. I like this book also because it’s about fantasy animals, forests, dragons and her relationships with other people.

    The Wheel On The School is a John Newbery Medal award book written by Meindert DeJong. It’s about six schoolchildren who want to make change by welcoming storks back to Shora. I enjoy the simplicity of this book because it focuses on schoolchildren. The author conveys the thoughts and personalities in a way that makes me understand easier. When I read this book, it kind of made me think about how I thought and the way I thought when I was younger. I really like how the author starts the story. It all started when Lina was reading an “essay” about storks, and then all along the wheel idea came out. The schoolchildren searched the whole village just for a wheel to welcome storks into Shora. Then they couldn’t find a wheel, which was a problem, and they met numerous difficulties along the way, but they kept on persisting, which I enjoyed and liked about this book.

    An action packed story filled with unexpected advents. This is about young boys who are trapped in a maze who don’t remember anything about their past and make their living there. They couldn’t make it out of the maze because there are terrifying bug creatures that are called Grievers. This is a really fascinating and adventurous book. Somehow when I read the book I became involved with the characters and thought as if I was one of them. It gave me a lot of space to imagine what the place looks like and what the characters looked like.
