    After watching the Maze Runner movies, I was interested enough to want to delve into the books, so I began the adventure with this one. We are immediately thrown into the fray, following a kid named Thomas who has no memories, just like every other "shank" in the glade. Dashner creates a mostly fascinating book, with strong characters, and I think he did a good job on it, but it almost feels as if it's missing something. I would say the thing The Maze Runner lacked most of was, as a reader, I somewhat feel a bit detached from the characters. But overall, this was a nice dystopian novel, and I'd recommend to anyone in middle school and above who's looking for a sound read.

    The One and Only Ivan is one of the most touching books I have ever read. Ivan is a kind gorilla who is stuck in a cage at a mall/video game center. Ivan had a friend with him named Stella the elephant. Sadly, she died and made Ivan promise to take care of Ruby (the new baby elephant who ended up at the mall) After hearing stories from Stella and Ruby, he was aware of the harsh abuse the animals received and wanted Ruby to be in a safe home, away from the mall. Unlike most gorillas, Ivan is talented in art. He used finger paints to create a sign for the humans to put on the billboard near the mall. People saw the sign and protested. Eventually, Ruby and Ivan found a safe home at the zoo and Ivan found a mate and Ruby found a loving family. Ivan's promise to Stella was fulfilled.

    Greg's grandfather moved into the Heffley home because he could no longer pay the rent at Leisure Towers. However, grandpa bothers Greg to the point where he made the car end up in a ditch. Greg then decided to participate on the school trip to Hardscrabble Farms because he doesn't want to confront his dad on what happened to the car. However, Greg soon realized he made a bad decision because of the horrible food, unsanitary showers (from sweat) and the rumored farmer named Silas Scratch. By the end of the book, we find out that Silas Scratch is someone Greg's dad invented just so he could have to shack with the clean showers all to himself. Greg decides to go along with it and holds up a sign saying "Beware of Silas Scratch" on his way home.
