This book is about 13 year old Jonah who is adopted and he wants to find out who he really is. He goes to the FBI but they aren't much help. He goes to a High School that is hosting a meeting for adopted kid's questions. He then realizes it's a trap and all the adopted kids with him are from different points in time. I give thi book a 4 star rating because it is actioned-packed at most part but it still has it's boring parts. I made a text-to-self connection because I used to wonder if I was adopted.
This book is the beginning of the Star Wars book and movie series. (not counting 4,5,6) One Jedi and his Padawan apprentice, Qui Gon Jinn and Obi Wan Kenobi, promise to protect the queen of Naboo, Queen Amidala. All three of them head off to Tatooine, with the queen disguising herself and Padmé. They meet Anakin Skywalker, and they have a war between the Empire. Anakin saves the day, but Qui Gon Jinn dies. I gave this book a 5 star rating because once I started reading it, I didn't want to put it down! I made a text-to world connection because I watched the movie several times.
This book is about Obi Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker fighting against the Empire and the Sith Lords. Senator Palpatine (secretly Darth Sidious, a Sith Lord) Palpatine turns Anakin to the Dark Side of the Force, and Anakin betrayed the Senate. Obi Wan and Anakin then have a showdown in a volcano-like place, where Obi Wan cuts off all of Anakin's limbs. I made a text-to-world connection because when Anakin betrayed the Senate, it reminded me of when Judas betrayed Jesus. I gave this book a 5 star rating because I am a huge fan of Star Wars and it gave me great pleasure reading this book.
In this book, Lucas's favorite thing in the world is football. One day, this is taken away from him due to an injury. When he tries to get football back with help from his uncle, he witnesses the attack on the World Trade Center. I made a connection to this book because my mom told me about 911.
