    If you are looking for a good book, Three Times Lucky by Sheila Turnage is the book for you. It is a great realistic fiction novel, as well as a Rebecca Caudill Nominee with a lot to offer for those who like mystery. And if you are looking for a personal opinion I really enjoyed it. To give a brief summary about the book (without giving too much away) Here is some of the key information. The book takes place in a small town of 148 people in North Carolina. Tupelo Landing. Our main protagonist in the story is an orphaned 11 year old girl named Mo, who was adopted by Colonel and Miss Lana. But then on one extraordinary day a friend of Mo’s named Mr. Jesse is murdered. This is where the main problem begins. That day a crime investigator then mysteriously comes to Tupelo by the name of Detective Joe Starr. But Mo and her friend Dale are to suspicious about Starr and take matters into their own hands by using all their possible resources. Later in the story a few major events occur giving the story's characters development as well some more answers about the murder. A few of these are the kidnapping of Miss Lana or hurricane Amy. But giving a pieces of nonspecific information can easily spoil parts of the book and possibly the ending, so to find out the rest you must read the book for yourself. To end the summary I obviously must say what people would be interested in this. If you are into deep mysteries with suspenseful moments and of course an over all enjoyable read this is the book for you.

    I am answering question number 1. Sweden is trying to make everyone not use cash, and instead use credit cards and other electronic payment types.

    I read the book Shadow on the Mountain, by Margi Preus. It is about a boy named Espen who lives in Norway during World War II. When they get invaded by Nazi's, Espen starts to deliver illegal newspapers and eventually becomes a spy and spies on a Nazi camp. He then gets noticed and tries to escape. I think that this is an excellent book because you learn about how life was like back then. Also, it has a lot a action and is fun to read. This book is realistic fiction because it is based on a true event in history, but not everything actually happened, meaning it could happen or in this case could have. The type of audience that would like this book are people that enjoy learning about World War II and action because that is what this book has a lot of. An internal conflict is that Espen is afraid of the Nazi's because they could take him away. An external conflict is Man Vs. society because Espen has to deal with the Nazi's invading his hometown.

    My book Chomp by Carl Hiaasen a Rebecca Caudill Nominee this year, was a very good book. A summary for the book is that it is about a boy named Wahoo and his dad Mickey who in their back yard have wild animals that they use for Television shows. The story mainly begins where a TV star Derek Badger from a survival show recruits Wahoo and Mickey to have their animals on the show. During this time Derek is not really a survivalist, and knows nothing which gives him dangerous trouble with the animals. We also meet Raven in this time with job of handling Derek and she also comes up a lot in the scenes. Later Derek says he wants to shoot the rest in the Everglades all real which they accepted. During this time in the Everglades Wahoo meets with his friend Tuna (a girl who gets beaten by her dad Jared), and Derek also gets hurt by a bat and runs away thinking he is a vampire. And if you want to hear more you have to read to find out. My opinion was that it was a good book. I liked the boom for the reason that there was always something going on, like at the start with the cool information about their life. Or the crazy incidents with Derek on the show, and definitely the action full ending. The genre is definitely realistic fiction because there are people that lend animals for livings and probably survivalist shows with people that don't know what they're doing. And there is a for sure possibility of incidents with abusive drunk father's. An audience that would like this book is an audience that likes things to be always happening and the reason is like said before it has many wired crazy moments. Which this is rather than a slow build up to a big moment. An internal conflict in the book was man vs. self, when Wahoo had to decide to accept the real show in the Everglades or not because Mickey wanted to quit. An external conflict was man vs. man, when Wahoo, Tuna, or Mickey, would fight Jared.
