    whopper12's book review was featured in Lincoln's Grave Robbers.
    The book I read was Lincoln's Grave Robbers, by Steve Sheinkin. 2. The book is about counterfeiters who need to get a very skilled counterfeiter out of jail. To bail the man out they need a lot of money. So they attempt to steal Lincoln's body and give it back to the government for $200,000. But what these criminals don't know is that the secret service knows everything they are doing. 3. I loved this book because I like to learn about our country's history and every little thing about it. I learned many things I did not know, like how to secret services only goal back than was to stop counterfeiters and not to protect the president. I also did not know how many currency's our country used before paper money. 4. This is a book for everyone and I think everyone should read it. The people who would like to read this book the most would be someone interested in Lincoln or the U.S. history. You should read this book because it has a good source of information about the early secret service and counterfeiters. 5. An internal conflict in my book is on page 98, and it states,"I have no instructions on this matter, what to do of how to act.", this is showing man vs self because character doesn't know what to do but he really wants to do something to catch the bad guys. 6. An external conflict was in my book on page 3 and it states,"McCarteny was hungry, bruised as a rotting apple, and lost somewhere far from home.", this is man vs nature because he is stranded away from his home and is not close to any civilization and is extremely hungry in the middle of the woods. 7. Lincoln's Grave Robbers is a good title because the book is simply about people trying to steal president Lincoln's remains, which are called grave robbers. 8. Another title that would be good for this book is, Counterfeiters to Grave Robbers. This is a good title because the people who attempt to steal Lincoln's grave were counterfeiters so they stop Counterfeiting and start grave robbing. 9. A Universal theme that was used through out the story was perseverance. Perseverance developed the overall story because the criminals were caught and the secret service man Patrick Tyrell did what ever he could to stop the bad guys and keep Lincoln's remains safe. The bad guys also had perseverance because they wanted Lincoln's body so bad to bust out an old friend. The theme perseverance was used by many people and many times throughout the book.

    The book that I recently read was called Crossing the wire by Will Hobbs. The book is about a boy named Victor Flores who has to go to the United States and make money for his family because his family farm is not doing so good. Also in the book Victor has a friend name Rico who moved to America and Victor plans on living with him. I liked the book, because when I read it I felt like I was in the book. Also I liked the details that the author put in. This genre is realistic fiction, because in the book it's about immigrants going to the United States, and things like that actually happen in Mexico and America. Also in the book it said that the price of corn in Mexico is dropping, and that is also happening in real life. So everything in the book could actually happen. Any audience could read this book. It is great for boys and girls because it action packed and drama filled. An internal conflict was man vs self and it happened when Victor had to tell Rico's parents that he left for America. That was man vs self because Victor kept changing his mind on whether or not to tell Rico's parents.

    The book I read was "Crossing The Wire", by Will Hobbs. My book is about a boy named Victor who needs to cross the U.S. Border to feed his family. He faces many challenges like starvation, natural weather, and border control. He just barely makes it to the United States, where he later finds his friend Rico. I loved this book because this is how most of the illegals in our country need to come here. I also liked this book because of the action and suspense; you just can't stop reading it. This book is realistic fiction because a lot of Hispanics do cross the border and come into our country seeking a better life. I think anyone would like this book because it shows how lots of people illegally come into this country and why they do it. It also informed me how much of a problem we have with this country's border protection and why these people want to come here so badly. The internal conflict Victor had was when he had many opportunities to get on a train or cross the border but he was hesitant so he mentally couldn't come to do it. He had external conflicts as well with sleeping in the woods and almost freezing to death and almost being caught by border control when he almost tripped running away from them.
