    I want this book because I think it is cool how people are finding new ways to reuse trash. I also love every single one of National Geographic books. One of my favorites is the weird but true series. I also think that the magazines are also very interesting, as well as the documentaries. My favo...

    The All-American Girl is truly a fascinating book, I couldn't stop reading once I started! The main character, Samantha, has always been a ordinary girl and could never stand out. Until one day she saves the president and suddenly the entire world looks up to her. However, she encounters more con...

    Tess of the D'Ubervilles is by the famous writer, Thomas Hardy. This has got to be one of the most depressing books I've ever read, Although the plot was not bad because of all those jaw-dropping events, there isn't really anything in particular that catches my eye. I don't really have a favorite...

    i love this because of mainly the whole story. Sara Crewe was a frail girl, so she couldn't live with her father in India. He was also a chef of the military . Her mother died when she was very young, so Sara is all her father had. However, he had to drop her off because she could stand the heat...

    I read this book in 5th grade and I honestly LOVE it. The author put many describing words to give me a sense that I was one of the sister's good friends. The one part that I don't like in the book is when Beth dies. That is really sad, even though she is a very quiet person in the book. She has ...

    Warning! This review contains spoilers (not that it matters because there's absolutely no suspense in this book whatsoever). There's this little girl named Heidi, and both of her parents died when she was a baby. So went to go live with her aunt and her grandmother (on her mom's side). But then h...

    I thought this book was an amazing book, and theres a good reason that it has the Newbery Honor Medal. It's about a girl who has to move from Chicago to her grandma's house in the countryside. By herself. Her grandma is also known for causing trouble, and for being very strict and having a sho...
