    I read this book at least 5 times. It's that good. Before I continue, I should say that I really enjoy Historical-Fiction books, so this review might turn out to be highly opinionated on that. This book is written in verse, and it's probably my first book that I have read that is written in verse...

    This book to me has a happy ending but the book it itself is sad. I read this in fourth grade while we were studying the holocaust. Adolf Hitler is a hater. A lot more people were killed by him and his army. In order to survive you had to have blond hair and blue eyes. Luckily someone who had a w...

The Woods Runner is a historical-fiction book that takes place during the Revolutionary War, so normally I would not pick it out to read, but I am so glad that I read it. T...

    This is a very good book, but it is kinda sad what Ruby Bridges had to go through as a child. She stood very strong her life and wouldn't let anything get in her way. If you like autobiographies I recommend you read this book.
