    This book was amazing! It shows a young boy, Manjiro, trying to raise money for his family, and goes fishing. He stumbles into a terrible storm, and gets lost at sea. An American ship finds him, and as he grows a close bond with the ship's captain, he has a big decision to make. He can either go with the American ship and live with the captain in America (and leave his homeland, Japan), or go back home to Japan. What will he choose? Read Heart of a Samurai to find out!!

    This is book is truly a work of art. It displays a group of boys (greasers) who are despised just by the way they dress , look , and act. Which is something many young kids may relate too in the fact that this is still going on in the world today. There is also another group on the other side of town call the soc's and they are the ones who judge the greasers just because they don't live the fancy life or have nice cars. They judged them for something that was so ridiculous , but the greasers changed for the good of themselves and not for the good of others. There is another lesson to be learned from this book it is the lesson of friendship. The greasers stuck together through everything and anything. There were always there for each other no matter what and they always forgave each other if somebody did something wrong. Another, thing is that they stuck up for each other. This book is a must for people who are interested in books about friendship, rivalry , and more.

    Sally Ride: Life on a Mission tells the story of how Sally Ride became the First American Woman in space. It shows all the the hard work that Sally did proving herself that she could do anything a man could do. She had done so many things that were amazing when she was just a teenager. From becoming nationally ranked in tennis to graduating from Stanford , Sally is and always will be an inspiring role model for young girls.

    This book was really good. I can relate to the main character, Bob, because he has a younger sibling. Bob and his family just moved in to a shady town with gangs and rude neighbors. Just as they settle in, Bob gets bullied by a group of bad kids. His dad is a preacher and is trying to repair a abandoned church. As they get to know their very strange neighbor, she seems nicer than what people say. Bob's family learns not to judge people by the way they look, and that this town isn't as bad as they think. I recommend this book to people who love realistic fiction and Christmas books.

    This book is such an inspirational book. Four girls, Meg, the fashionista, Jo, the tomboy, Beth, the guitarist, and Amy, the artist, live an somewhat normal life. They don't have much money, so they live in a cheap apartment. Their dad is halfway across the country, and the girls and their mom are mourning for him. But instead, they learn a lesson; even if they are a little poor, they have more than some people. This message gets them through extraordinary things. I recommend this book to 4-6 graders, and for people who love realistic fiction.
