    Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live on the streets? Being a thief and robber, fighting to survive and have the military out to catch you? Nowhere to live, nobody to trust, your on your own. This happens in Legend by Marie Lu. This is an amazing book where Day fights to survive to help his family while the military tries to catch him. In the story, Day is a runaway child that has been fighting to survive. He failed a test when he was ten and had to be killed but he escaped before they killed him. Day is out robbing for not just himself but for Tess and his family. Tess is a twelve year old girl that is very experienced with medical related things. She helps Day and makes sure he is okay whenever he finishes robbing anything. Day found Tess on the streets and Tess joined him. While the military is out to get Day, a girl named June Iparis is also out to get him. She works for Commander Jameson, the head of the military and she is out to get Day for one reason, revenge. When Day was attempting to rob a hospital for medicine, Day had done something to June's brother Metias. June is out to hunt for Day while he is fighting to survive and hide in the shadows. I really enjoyed this book for the suspense that was put into by the author. You would always want to turn the page and see what happens next because you never know. In other books, you can usually guess what will happen next but the author did such a good job of making creative parts to the book that you would never expect. This book is related to Swindle because of the suspense and how you would always want to turn the page. Both main characters in the book are getting revenge on somebody while somebody is out to stop them. Marie Lu is young adult writer and she is most known for her Legend series. She is a dystopian writer set in the future involving military. She has written Prodigy and Champion, the series for Legend. She has also just started a new series called The Young Elites. A person that would enjoy this book is somebody that is okay with violence. This book includes lots of mystery behind every character and lots of suspense. A boy or girl would enjoy this book.

    The title of the book I read is Chomp by Mark Haissen. The book is about a family named the Crays and they are very low on money. Wahoo's mother, Susan Cray, goes on a trip to China to see if she can earn some money. Mickey Cray, the father of Wahoo, had a serious concussion about 5 months ago. When the producer of Expedition Survival! calls, Wahoo accepts the job right away. The producer of the show wanted to use the Cray's animals in their backyard for their next big shoot. My opinion of the book is that it is a very interesting book. In the last 40 pages, it started getting very good. Some evidence for this is that in the last 40 pages, Jared Gordon has Mickey Cray hostage with a gun to his back at all times. In the beginning, it was very slow and a little hard to understand but once I read it over a couple of times, I would understand what the Mark Haissen was trying to tell me. At the end, the author tried getting the suspense going right until the last word of the book. The genre is realistic fiction because some TV producer could actually make a show called Expedition Survival! and make it a very popular show. Another thing that was also realistic was that the Crays has a mini zoo in their backyard and someone in the world can have that. A person that would like to read this book is a person that likes suspense and a little humor. Also, the person might like to have a high understanding of some hard words. An internal conflict in Mickey Cray is that he has a major concussion and he gets headaches all the time so he has to sit down once in awhile instead of being in on the action. An external conflict in the book is that Mickey Cray is being held hostage with a gun to his back at all times.
