    Did you ever want read a book that is very suspenseful and you won't be able to put down. Well then Divided We Fall by Trent Reedy is definitely your next realistic fiction book. My rating of this book would be 4 stars out of five because I liked how's suspenseful, it was but it could be a little slow in some parts. Divided we fall is about a 17 year old kid named Danny who enlists in the Idaho national guard. He is deployed to stop rioting in the streets. During his mission a civilian throws a rock at him with causes him to jerk his gun. This causes a huge blood bath leaving Danny to blame. Danny then is on the run from the Feds throughout the book. For example it was really suspenseful when Danny was crossing the Idaho border, and hiding in his truck when they searched the car so they wouldn't find him. It was kind of boring in the story when Danny was at home just talking to his mom and trying to get her less stressed. In a way I would say this book is a little bit like divergent because the government does turn against the soldiers. Trent Reedy has also written a second book in the series called a fallen nation. Overall a reader who would enjoy this book is anyone who likes war books and dystopian mixed into one.

    Some things you could do to help veterans are, writing a letter to a veteran you know. Or you could walk in a parade to show your support of the veterans that protect are country.

    chris101's book review was featured in Football Genius.
    The book I read was Football Genius by Tim Green. This book is about a boy who can predict any play that's going to be run before the ball is even snapped. But, no one will listen to him about his talent. So the main character Troy try to get someone to listen throughout the book. My opinion of this book would be 4 stars. I thought this book should be rated this high because of the constant suspense after every chapter really left me hanging. This book is realistic fiction because all the components of this book could happen. For example it's very possible for a kid to love football so much he knows all the formations to predict plays before they happen. The audience that would enjoy this book is probably a boy that enjoys to read about sports and or football specifically. Also someone who likes to be left on the edge of their seat while reading. One example of an internal conflict is when Troy has to decide if it's worth it to risk his mom's job in order to help the Falcons make the playoffs by running on to the field to show them his talent. An example of an external conflict is when Troy is fighting his coach because he is better than the starter but he doesn't ever get a chance a playing in a real game.
