    Can you imagine your life changing in the blink of an eye? One second, one split second and it's all gone. Mia was just a normal teenage girl that morning, she had her mother, her father, and her brother Teddy. Almost all of that was taken from Mia that snow day when the truck hit her car. Have you ever just been somewhere at the wrong time? In the book If I stay by Gayle Forman, 17 year old Mia was. And it changed her life forever. Most of the book takes place in the hospital, on what was going to be an awesome snow day. The antagonist is The coma that Mia is in, and the protagonist is Mia, because she is always changing and well developed throughout the story. One major conflict in this book is the fact that Mia can see everything that's happening while she's laying on her hospital bed. She sees her best friend, boyfriend, and family. But no one can see her, feel her, or hear her. Another conflict in the book is that mia has to make one of the biggest decision she will ever make. Would you want to wake up an orphan, or die and leave behind so many people who love you? There is always that one person in your life that has an impact on the decisions you make. For Mia, that person was her grandfather. The soothing words he said to her, for a second made her feel like she had something to live for. “It's okay if you want to stop fighting.” This book can make you cry, and it's definitely a must read!

    shapla's book review was featured in Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (Thorndike Press Large Print Literacy Bridge Series).
    Don't you just love the kinds of books that create a movie in your mind? "Miss Peregrines home for Peculiar Children" by Ransom Riggs is definitely one of those books! This book takes place during world war ll, at miss peregrines home. A boy named Jacob was only a kid when his grandfather told him stories about the children, Jacob didn't believe him though he thought they were fairy tales even after he saw photographs. His parents had convinced him that it was all made up. Jacob's dad never really connected with the grandfather because he was never home when Jacob's dad was a kid. His aunt and father though that there might be another girl. Jacob works at a store that runs in the family, that was his future...Until his grandfather has a major breakdown and ends up dying. His last words were "September third, 1940." Jacob was so impacted by his grandfather's death he has to see a psychiatrist. Dr. Golan was his name, he was also the antagonist in the story, read the book to find out why! The protagonist is Jacob because he is the main character and doesn't give up until he gets answers. After a while of nightmares about the death of his grandfather and seeing Dr golan, Jacob finds a letter. The letter was from miss Peregrine. Jacob does so much searching until he comes to a conclusion (with the help of golan) to go to the island of where the house was to find miss Peregrine and get some answers. Are the children real? Is miss peregrine even real? Read this weird yet exciting book to find out, I highly recommend it!
