    georgiasilver's book review was featured in The Book Thief.
    The Book Thief is an extremely well written book with elaborate figurative language and descriptive settings. I really enjoyed the metaphors and diction that made reading the book very colorful and unique; it seemed as if all the scenes were vividly painted through words. Taking place in Munich, Germany, the book leads the reader through the life of Liesel Meminger. The book illustrates the hard life that Liesel must live as her family's situation gets worse and worse. She has to battle her personal problems of constant nightmares that haunt her every night, as well as keeping their secret of a Jew living in the basement of their home. Terror and poverty is a constant through her every day life, and she has to endure it. But the book also shows the small joys in her life: how she connects with Max, her foster father's accordion, and Rudy, a loyal friend that is by her side all throughout the book, as well as the books and writing. This book really allows the reader to absorb what is happening, and read about the complexities of each character and their actions/consequences. This is a very powerful and extraordinary book that I recommend everyone to read.

    Percy Jackson, as he goes through yet another exciting adventure, discovers various monsters, as well as his weaknesses and strengths. It gives the readers a look into the life of Percy as he travels with his friend Annabeth in order to save his buddy, Grover who was held captive in the cave of a dangerous cyclops who was known for capturing satyrs. The book also has a humorous twist overall, having jokes in between the plot and danger, creating a much more interesting tale. Percy also, through his heroic and brave acts, shows what it means to help your family and camp, by retrieving the Golden Fleece to save Thalia's tree. Not only does this book give you lots of surprises, but at the very end it gives an even more thrilling and compelling twist that will rope the readers into reading the next book of the series. The whole series itself, as well as this book, should definitely be read by anyone! :)

    This book, as well as the entire series, is amazing to read! To me, the family of the Penderwicks seems to, not only learn themselves, but guide the readers through their journey of life. As the Penderwicks, Batty, Rosalind, Jane, and Skye, all work to save their father from the world of dating, their humor and wit spin a very funny and interesting tale. The story is also around family, and the strong bonds between them all as they find a way to come to an agreement as a whole. The readers can also sense the different opinions of various ages, as well as the responsibility and part that each Penderwick is in the family. This book is fantastic, and definitely should be read by anyone! :)
