    norzie452's book review was featured in Golden Boy.
    Have you ever been the odd one out? Or to the point where because you so odd and weird looking, your life is in danger all the time? Welcome to the hard life of a thirteen-year-old Tanzanian boy, Habo short for Dhahabo, which means “golden”. In the realistic fiction book Golden Boy by Tara Sullivan, Habo is albino which is very rare. Unlike the rest of his dark-skinned family, he has yellow hair, light eyes, and pale white skin. All of his family, except for his sister Asu, has a very hard time accepting who he is. Habo has a hard time accepting who he is himself. A lot of times in the book his brother can't even look at him without making Habo very uncomfortable and not confident with his looks. A similar book to this is Ghost Boy by Iain Lawrence. It is about an albino boy that sticks out as well. Tara Sullivan was born in India and spent her childhood living with her parents in Bolivia, Bangladesh, Ecuador, and the Dominican Republic. She went to Tanzania to interview many families which tells me that she got good information. I would definitely recommend this book to others, but more specifically ages eleven and up would enjoy the book. I would rate this book a 5/5. This book shows love, kindness, passion, and dedication. In the book Habo is so dedicated to travel for his safety. It also showed the overall thinking process of a boy with an incredibly tough life, which is something that I really enjoyed.

    Wow! That train selfie in the video was crazy! It took my breath away! Selfies are totally going out of control if people are dying and even getting injured because of them!!!

    I really dislike this book because it is very confusing at times and it took me a couple of times to read over the text, so that I could actually understand it thoroughly. I also didn't like the author's way of putting things and writing. I would not recommend this book others because it is very boring in my opinion and it also was very plain and not a lot of things happend throughout the book.
