The true story of Robert Hoge. This story starts the day Robert was born. I'm 1972 Robert was born with a tumor in the middle of his face and short, twisted legs. His mom left him at the hospital and said she did not want him. Finally, after asking everyone she knew asking for there opinions agree asked her 4 other children. They all voted "yes" to keep the new baby. His mom's love grew for him fast and fierce even though she had doubts at the beginning. He has had many operations when he was a young child. And when he was older they have him opportunities to make his face look even more "Normal" it was a big decision and in the end he made a big choice. And I personally think he made a good choice ..
I loved this book and it's an amazing, sad, heartbreaking, funny, loving, TRUE story. I recommend this to people who liked wonder (this tied with the book in my opinion.) Thanks for reading -Ajg16's reviews
Once there was a tree who loved a little boy. The boy would eat her apples, play in her trucks and sleep in her shade. The boy loved the tree very much and enjoyed his childhood playing in the shade of her limbs. As the boy gets older he wants many things, money, a home, a boat. The tree gives him these things because she cares very much and it makes her happy. But is she happy... The boy is never around and she is lonely. But one day the boy comes back - except he isn't a boy. He is an old tired man. He only needs one thing. a place to rest... That place is the stump of the wonderful, giving, tree. I still love this book even though it is short. Thanks for reading- Ajg16's reviews

Read about Mr. Burns looking for treasure, Homer living in a couch for a year, Marge dive into into the tough business of co-anchoring in the news with Kent Brockman, and Lisa filling the humongous hole of art in Springfield by starting a book club. This was not to long , not to short basically the perfect amount. Thanks for reading -Ajg16's reviews
"Four score and seven years ago..." ( President Abraham Lincoln) I'm this short book it talks a little about President Abraham Lincoln. He was president at a very hard time in U.S history. The North & the South were at war, but he still had time to not only try to win the war and put a end to slavery he also wrote letters to Americans, help the people, and give speeches. His son Tad (Thomas) loved his father and loved to pretend to be a soilder and play and wrestle with his dad. Near the small town of Gettysburg a huge battle took place and nearly 43,000 men died total from both sides. President A. Lincoln was invited to give a short speech in honor of all the men. 15-20,000 people came to here the speeches. One man, Mr. Everett, spoke for nearly 2 hours whilst The Presidents speech was about 2 minutes lomg! Everyone would remember the So we h for many many years to come. I'm the back of this book there is a copy of the speech and I can see why it was and still is a very popular speech. Thanks for reading -Ajg16's reviews
