    I am going to tell about one of my favorite comics. It is called Transformers by James Roberts. This book is about some groups of Transformers called the Autobots. This book takes place after a war on a planet called Cybertron. The protagonists in my book are Autobots and there names are Ratchet,Tailgate,Rodimus,Drift,and Ultra mag. The antagonist in my book are the Decepticons.One of the conflicts in my book is that the Decepticons are doing something to the Autobots even though the war is over and won. Another conflict in my book is that an Autobot has betrayed the rest of the Autobots. The way Ratchet fixed this conflict was pretty cool. I liked this book because it has action and more. If you find this book I think you will like it. The end

    SPOILER ALERT: Imagine what it would be like to be Gregory heffley. If I were him, I would probably run away and never to be seen again. Diary of a wimpy kid: hard luck made by Jeff Kinney is about a boy named Greg heffley that is the antagonist and protagonist of the story. The book starts at the heffley household at the one place where EVERYTHING goes wrong, the kitchen. The next day Greg finds out that his best friend rowley got a girlfriend. Which COMPLETELY ruins Gregory’s relationship with rowley. And even worse, (for Gregory) Greg's mom tries to help with the situation, which makes it even worse for Greg. Greg finds a magic 8 ball and uses what it says for good advice like on quizzes or whether to eat the veggies or the meat first. so I would consider this an ok book. I say this because it has a lot of plot twists and the setting to each chapter is just random.

    Have you ever felt different from everyone else? When you know people seem to not want to be around you, like you have some kind of contagious disease? Well that's how Hazel feels. In The Fault In Our Stars, by John Green, Hazel is the main character, who is 16 and has lung cancer. This book doesn't have any particular time that it took place, although it does mention that Hazel and her family live in Indiana. With the help of her mom making her go to support group, Hazel meets a 17 year old boy, who soon becomes her friend, named Augustus Waters, who also has a form of cancer. I would consider cancer to be the antagonist, and and Hazel to be the protagonist, because she is constantly fighting cancer, or as Hazel would say, living with it. One major conflict in this book is when Isaac-Hazel's friend from support group-loses his eyesight, and goes completely blind. One other conflict in this book is when Peter Van Houten-Hazel’s favorite author-finally responds to the mail she's been sending him. Van Houten lives in Amsterdam, and Hazel had always wanted to meet him, but her family doesn't have the money, and her doctors say she might not make it. Will Hazel and Augustus figure out a way for Hazel to get to Amsterdam? Or will she have to stay in Indiana, waiting out her life? Find out in The Fault In Our Stars, where you will discover how hard it is to live with cancer, and the hardships people have to go through.

    Do you want to read a truly amazing book? If so you should read Code of Honor by Alan Gratz. The setting takes place in Phoenix, Arizona. The protagonist is Kamran. The antagonist is kamran’s own brother Darius. His mother is from Iran but that doesn't help but prove him more to be a terrorist. One conflict is His family is going through the worst of anything they can think of their eldest son is accused of being a terrorist! Another conflict is an On camera Threats and attacks on the United States. The only way to save him and his brother are secret codes used as kids. The turning point is when Kamran a 17 year old boy uses the codes to solve it all. Is his brother really a terrorist. Darius Only went to military academies to learn national secrets. Kamran was taken away by homeland security. I loved this book because it is very unpredicted.

    A lot of the time people don't think about how it would feel to have someone in your family with autism. In the book Rules by Cynthia Lord the main character is Catherine, a twelve year old girl who desperately wants a normal life, but it seems impossible when you have a brother with autism. Catherine tries many things to help her brother David, like making rules for him to follow. Another conflict in this book along with have an autistic brother is Catherine tries her best to make friends like Kristi, her new next door neighbor but to Catherine's surprise she makes a friend named Jason, a boy that she never expected to be friends with. Catherine is the protagonist in this book and David and Catherine's parents are the antagonists. David can't help that he has autism but Catherine wants a normal life so bad it makes it hard on her. Her parents don't seem to understand how hard it is for her and seem to give all of their attention to David. The turning point in this book is when Catherine tries to learn how to accept her brother for who he is… But will she ever fully learn how to accept him? The setting in Rules is in Maine during the summer around Catherine's house, her friends house and her neighborhood. I really recommend you read this book! It gives you great perspective on Catherine's life and can be very relatable for someone in middle school.
