    This review is not for this book but for another book that Tracie Vaughn Zimmer wrote called Reaching For Sun.------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Have you ever thought about what it would be like to be disabled? In the book Reaching For Sun by Tracie Vaughn Zimmer Josie Wyatt knows what it's like. In the book Josie is the protagonist and antagonist. Josie is different than all the other kids at school, she has a disability called cerebral palsy, her disability is also one of the major conflicts in the book. Josie just wants to have friends and join in on the fun. She wants to be normal. Josie lives with her mom and gran (grandmother) in a farmhouse that has been in the family for years. Josie's grandmother has been forced to sell some of their land due to their shortage of money and with the huge mansions being built behind their house it now seems even smaller. Things seem to just get worse and worse for Josie. But when a boy her age moves into one of the houses being built behind her house things start to look better for Josie. This book takes place during her 7th grade school year at Josie's house, school, and occasionally the nursing home that she and her gran visit. Another major conflict in the book is when the new boy Jordan moves into one of the new houses. The turning point in the book is when Josie stands up to her mom and tells her how she feels. If you're looking for a short read or just a good book then I recommend reading it!

    julcla's book review was featured in Matched.
    Have you ever been faced with a huge decision? In this book called Matched by Ally Condie Cassia's life changes in many ways. Some ways for the better and other ways for the worse. The book takes place in the province of Oria which is where Cassia and her family live. Cassia lives with her parents and her brother, Bram. When you turn 17 you are put into the matching pool by the society. Your match is presented to you at a match banquet. Your match is the person you will be married to. It was a surprise to everyone when Cassia was matched with her best friend Xander. Everything seemed to be going great until she saw Ky Markham's face flash on her micro card that was supposed to have Xander's face on it. This moment was the turning point of the book. Cassia is the protagonist and the officials are the antagonists. The officials decide your whole life for you and Cassia isn't going to let that happen. Two major conflicts in this book are Cassia not being able to have the life he wants and also hiding things from the officials and Xander. This book had a great ending that made me want to read the next book. I recommend reading this book and I hope you like it as much as I did!
