    snicker9's book review was featured in Sense and Sensibility (A Penguin Classics Hardcover).
    Sense and Sensibility is the story of the Dashwood sisters, particularly focused on Elinor and Marianne and their various romances. Elinor was my favorite character, because I am able to relate most to her. One of my favorite parts of the book is the relationship between the two sisters, and the differences and stark contrast between them. Yet, they still have that connection and confide in each other. I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars, and I would recommend this book to romance booklovers and Jane Austen fans. I do not think it is a book that is meant for, or interest young readers.

    snicker9's book review was featured in Do Hard Things: A Teenage Rebellion Against Low Expectations.
    This book lives up to it's title. It inspires you to "Do Hard Things". This book encourages young people to go beyond what is expected of teenagers today, to "rebel against low expectations". The fact itself that when this book was written, the authors were teens is a testament to the book itself. I liked that the way the Harris brothers proved their point, and encouraged, was through different types of stories. For example, in some areas they would quote Bible verses and connect how they tie in to every day life. In other places they would give modern day examples of teens who were inspired, and did hard things and give personal stories and anecdotes. One of my favorite messages in the book is that hard things can look different for everyone. For some people, it can be starting a blog or a mission group to build wells overseas. For other people it can be playing the piano in public, or making an effort to get along with a sibling. It doesn't matter how big or small it is. What matters is that you do the hard thing. I would definitely recommend this book to all pre-teens and teenagers. Although geared specifically towards adolescents, it would also probably be a good read for adults. I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.

    jeffdaboss's book review was featured in Kid Authors: True Tales of Childhood from Famous Writers (Kid Legends).
    Another great book in the funny and inspiring Kid Legends series. Just like the other books, readers can learn about legendary people in various careers. Now, we're learning about the authors you AND your parents know. Like the average kid, they too struggled with family, bullies, school, and much more. Jeff Kinney based his "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" series off of his crazy childhood experiences with his three siblings. Mark Twain was a wild child, just like his most famous character, Tom Sawyer. J.K. Rowling based Harry Potter's attire on her neighborhood friend whose last name was Potter. Some of Langston Hughes' poems came from the African American history his grandmother told him about. This book is uplifting because it shows that not everyone successful started out perfect. I strongly advise getting the whole series, even if being a well-known author or a world-class athlete isn't something you want to be.
