    jeffdaboss's book review was featured in Tornado Terror (I Survived True Stories #3): True Tornado Survival Stories and Amazing Facts from History and Today.
    Tornado Terror is a really good nonfictional book. I'm not exactly into nonfiction, but I really liked Lauren Tarshis's new book on famous tornadoes. The book covers two major tornadoes: The Tri-State Tornado of 1925 and the Joplin Tornado of 2011. Both stories switch from focusing on a person's testimony to the tornadoes progress to the person. In the Tri-State Tornado of 1925, Tarshis follows Adrian Dillon of Parrish, Illinois, and how his plans for a special marbles tournament would be ruined. She highlights what life and science was like in the 1920's, while progressing the through the day. Once the tornado hit and Adrian's true story is done, she gives facts about the tornado, like how many people were killed, the aftermath, and the improvement of the scientific field of weather. Next, she talks about the Joplin Tornado, and how it came on Bennett Satterlee's birthday. She alternates from the Satterlee's point of view to renowned storm chasers Jeff and Kathryn Piotrowski's point of view. The focus lands on the aftermath once the tornado hit, and what the town did to support each other. Once both tornado stories are finished, Tarshis informs the reader about general tornado knowledge, like vocabulary, "Mr. Tornado", among other things. Tornado Terror was a really good book, and one you should get.

    super10's book review was featured in See You in the Cosmos.
    This was truly a book that me see the world in a different light. It made me realize that curiosity can be the infinite answer. Plus, it was also very optimistic! In the book See You in The Cosmos, a 11-year old boy named Alex Petroski desires to travel to Phoenix, for a convention all about rockets! In the convention, he wants to launch a golden iPod into space, similar to how his idol Carl Sagan did. Along the journey he encounters many problems, like being in the middle of a love triangle, and even has to detour to Los Angeles! Alex shows an incredible amount of perseverance, and this characteristic helps him solve his problems! This story taught me that optimism can help you in life's tight situations. An example of this would be when Alex lost his dog, Carl Sagan. This turned out to be a major problem for Alex, but after a week or so, his dog was found! I would only reccomend this book to my friends in grades higher than 5, due to the mature topics covered in it. I really liked the point of view showcased in this book. For that reason, I rate it 5 out of 5 stars!

    super10's book review was featured in Short.
    I really thought this was a barrier breaking book. It helped me to see people who are short in a better light. It helped me realize the world from a different point of view! In the book Short, a girl named Julia Marks wants to have a summer of just writing letters to her friends and relaxing. But this is dream is crushed, because she has to try out for a university performance, and she makes it! This turns out to be a problem early, but she meets new friends along the way, like a artistic neighbor named Mrs. Chang, and she starts to enjoy and have pride in the performance! This book helped me learn to see the world in a optimistic point of view. An example of this was when Julia met Olive, an adult who was short. Olive knew that people would look at her often, but she let it go, and didn't get angry! I would definitely recommend this book to my friends, because I feel that it would inspire them, no matter how tall or short they are. Because of the inspiration I felt when reading this book, I rate it 5 out of 5 stars.
