    The book I have read is called Slam and it is by Walter Dean Meyers. This book is about a 16 year old person called Greg Harris. He is also known as slam because of basketball. Slam loves playing basketball as he has joined a new school. Despite his talents, his teachers notice that his grades have declined. Now, Slam has to figure out what to do before he gets kicked off the team. My opinion of the book is that it is a good book. The reason why I say that it is a good book is that it really brings out the emotions of the character and what the character is feeling on the inside. Slam is realistic fiction because this could actually happen to someone or it is based off someone, but it has some fictional parts to it. An audience that would read this book would be an audience that likes sports and would enjoy a book with a lot of details because that is what this book exactly contains. A external conflict in the book was that Slam's friends are starting to turn on him because he left his old school and the think he is different. An internal conflict is that Slam is deciding whether to go back to his old school or not and it is fighting the insides of him.

    I read the book Counting by 7s by Holly Sloan. This book is about a 12 year old girl, her name is Willow Chance. She was adopted, she's not a typical girl, almost everything interests her and she is a genius. Since she isn't "normal" it's hard for her to make friends, until she meets a high school girl, her name is Mai, she really likes her and hopes that they will become better friends. This is realistic fiction because all of the events that happen in this book could happen in real life. For example, Willow's parents died in a car crash, a lot of people die from car accidents in real life too. I think that anyone can read this book and enjoy it because it isn't one of those books that are specific for one gender, also the events in this book could happen to anyone and be relatable to anyone. Willow had an internal conflict when she was deciding if she should stand up to her counselor Dell with Mai even though she wasn't completely sure if it was the right thing to do. Willow also had a external conflict (man vs society), when she has wearing her favorite gardening outfit and a girl thought she was a janitor and she was wondering if she should change how she looks so that, that doesn't happen again.

    Book review By: Serafina DeMunno My book is about Serafina and the black cloak. This book is about a girl name Serafina lives in the bottom of the Biltmore mansion she is not supposed be seen or heard at all by anyone. She lives with her father and gets into a lot of trouble to one day she is seen and no more is she a secret. My author is Robert Beatty. My opinion of this book is that it's really creepy, I think this book is creepy because it's about this black deep dark secret and dungeon in there's all types of mystical creatures in there, but they're not really mystical they're just really really odd. I like this book because it really speaks to me not it says my name it just really good book he uses very detailed words and is very specific about certain characters. This book makes you feel like you're standing right next to her watching everything she does feeling everything she feels in hearing everything she hears. This genre is realistic fiction because it's about a girl who has a hard life with her mother and her father who is very poor and they're not eating much. I think this is realistic fiction because this stuff can happen in real life to real people. All the drama that's going on in her life and all the actions that she does and all the people even the Biltmore mansion is real all the stuff is real in that could be real people in real life. I think the audience I would like to read this book is 13+ because some of the stuff that happens in here is pretty dark and deep in very secretive and it could scare you a little bit. I don't think this book is for little children because it's got a lot of blood and it's got a lot of scary nighttime woods actions. I think the internal conflict that Serafina is that when she found out that her dad is not really her dad and she has a big secret because her mother left her half dead in the woods it leaves a big hole in her heart and she really doesn't know who she is. I think the external conflict ear is that she's trying to fight this man the black cloak and she's having young master Vanderbilt help her.
