    Boy 21 by:Matthew Quick Have you a ever wondered what it is like to live in a neighborhood full of drug dealers, being one of the many white kids in the community. Well the kid in a book called Boy 21 by Matthew Quick, lives this life. Although all of these problems might be distracting, this boy named Finley, keeps himself away from all of these problems by playing his favorite sport, basketball. This is a great book because as I read on, the story was getting better and better. In this book, Finley is a high schooler that plays on the basketball varsity team and he has a girlfriend named Erin who also plays basketball. Finley lives in a neighborhood ruled by drugs, violence, and Irish mobs. His nickname is "White Rabbit" because he is, well white and he eats a lot of carrots. Everything was normal until Finley's coach tells him to help a new kid named Russ, who came to this school after a family tragedy and use to be a basketball star. Now Russ is called "Boy21". Finley has to help Russ even if it means giving up some things. Later on in the book, the two boys realize that Russ coming to the school was a good thing. I really enjoyed reading this book but in the beginning of the book, it was a little inappropriate but other than that, the book was great. I mostly loved when the author makes you infer what will happen next in this book. I'd say that this book is a real page turner because the author kept pulling the reader in about every other page. Mathew Quick is a 42 year old man who is most known for writing a bestselling book called "The Silver Linings Playbook". I believe that this book is kind of unique in its own way. I don't think that any other book was like this one. And the kind of people who would like to read this book are people who like a little bit of drama and sports and the age group for this book would be 13 and up.

    The book that I am reading is called MayB by:Caroline Starr Rose. This book takes place in the 19th century and it is about a 12 year old girl named Mavis Elizabeth Betterly (May B) who lives on the prairies of Kansas. Her parents send her 15 miles away from her home to help a neighbor with some chores just until Christmas. But the people she was staying with abandoned her, so she is forced to prepare for the long and harsh winter alone. I thought that MayB was a book to help the reader if they had struggles too because May B was always afraid and insecure about her abilities, later on in the book she has to overcome her fears and insecurities. And this was supposed to show that the reader or anybody can do the same. This genre is realistic fiction because the things in the book didn't actually happen to that specific character (s), but It could have happened to anybody during that time period. The kind of audience that would like to read this book is the audience that likes survival stories.The kind of audience that would like to read this book is the audience that likes survival stories because May B has to survive the long and harsh winter. An internal conflict in this book is when May B struggles to overcome her fears and insecurities. An external conflict in the book was when May B had to prepare for the long and harsh winter when she was abandoned. I would give this book 3 1/2 stars because it was interesting but also a little boring(especially in the beginning).
