    Unlike early space travelers, who had to consume mysterious powders, purees, and freeze-dried cubes, today's astronauts enjoy a variety of freeze-dried meals, snacks, and desser...

    This is a very meaningful book, except I don't think it was written or designed in a way that would make kids pick it up and say, "I want to read this book." I only read this book because I had to and it was not a very interesting book that engaged me very well. Once I finally got to the end, however, I understood why the author chose to write it and realized that it had a pretty good message, but I still did not enjoy it and would never read it again. The book starts off with the main character, Jake, playing in a lacrosse game on his Indian reservation. The fact that the book was written around lacrosse might have been one of the reasons I didn't like it, so if you like lacrosse then this book might be a good read for you. Afterwards, Jake learns that his mom wants to spend more time with him, so he is moving to Maryland. The book follows Jakes journey to a new school where he doesn't seem to fit in because of his Indian ancestry. He joins the lacrosse team because he feels that it is the only thing he is good at. Jake doesn't realize until the end, when he initiates a very special lacrosse game with his school for someone in need, that he should share what he believes in, to help others. In order to really understand what the real meaning and message of this book was, you need to read it. I, personally, did not enjoy this book, but other elementary level readers who like short books about topics with good messages, might enjoy this book more than I did.

    This is a hilarious read with many unexpected twists and turns, yet I didn't get what the overall message was. To me it was just a one-time read if you want something light and easy that you don't have to think about. When the main character AJ goes back to school for 6th grade he feels left behind. In his trio of friends he is the only one that didn't grow, the only one that didn't do anything exciting over the summer, and he still has the same crush he has had for years, and his crush still doesn't notice him...........but maybe this year will be different. One thing AJ knows about Nia, who according to AJ is the most perfect girl on the planet, is that she is totally into vampires. AJ hatches a far-fetched plan for him to dress up as a vampire to get Nia to notice him......and it backfires........badly. He goes all out, with messed up hair, sunken in eyes, fangs, sunglasses, and blood on his teeth, and Nia definitely notices him. He catches Nia's bus and when they get off on the same stop, Nia corners him in the woods, and AJ learns that she is a SLAYER. This book will be a wonderful read for kids who like graphic novels, coming-of-age books, or easy, light reads. Definitely read this book to find out the result of AJ's crazy plan, and Nia's dream.

    I picked up this book because I thought that the cover was really creative and I wanted to know what the book was about. This book is told in five different perspectives, so it can sometimes get confusing, but the author wrote it very well. Since there are so many perspectives you can really see how the characters change and develop throughout the book because you read about what everyone thinks about themselves but also how they see others, which makes the book very engaging. These five characters are all in the same class for 6th grade, epic gymnast Randi, football-crazy Gavin, bully on the outside Trevor, always the optimist Scott, and future lawyer Natalie. They might seem like a mismatched group of kids, but they have much in common and many potential things that could bring them closer together, in this case, the dreaded statewide assessment test. It feels like test practice is taking away all the things that these kids look forward most in school, recess, read-alouds, and even after-school programs. The kids realize that if they are going to prove how unjust the test is, then they will have to work together. Told in the perspectives of five seemingly opposite kids, this book will keep you engaged and wondering what crazy scheme will happen next. This relatable book is great for middle shoolers who like realistic humor.
