    I learned a lot about different perspectives from this book, and I also learned that in order to understand a controversy, you will have to consider every point of view and not just stick to your own opinion. Some of the authors in the book state that women often earn a lot lesser than men, and also mention the fact that women often have to take care of sick family members as well. After reading several different opinions on this, I think that women do deserve the right to determine whether they want to start a family, or focus on their career first. They also talk about how women deserve more job opportunities in the workplace, and how males need to grow up and take up the job of caring for the children as well. However, they don't really get around to explaining how this new system can possibly solve the problem of gender inequality or how it is any better than the traditional patriarchal family. After finishing this book, I finally have a greater appreciation of how every gender needs the other, and how each gender should have both equal rights and respect.

    Overall I recommend this book especially if you want to learn more about global warming. Global warming is a serious problem occurring in present day and if we don't take actions or find a solution, Earth species will be facing a huge extinction. This book introduces to the reader about what exactly is global warming, what causes global warming, and why is it important. That's just the starting part, the best part is that it gives lots of information about the effects of global warming and solutions for it. I learn a lot from this book about how serious the problem is and what I can do personally to help our Earth. Also, there's lots of great pictures, great information, are organized, and basically tells the audience all about the topic - Global Warming.

    I really enjoy reading this book, it's a really sweet, warm and family love story. It's basically about a teenage girl, Kate, got a cancer and her mom is going to use her little sister, Anna's bone to save Kate, but it might also kill Anna, too. After Kate, Anna, and their older brother know about it, Kate told them to sue their parents, and then on the court, I think at last their parents won, but they also didn't replace Kate's bone with Anna's too, because they found out that it's a hurt to Anna. I really like how the family love are in the story at last, because at last, the mom shaved her hair off just to be like Kate and not letting her feel different, so people won't be looking at her in a different way. I really enjoy reading this book a lot, I think this is one of my favorite book, and I would want to read it again. :)

    It's Not Summer Without you is the sequel of the Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han, and the relationships and storyline gets even better! A few months after that summer, everything changes. Susannah has passed away from cancer, Conrad had broken up with Belly, but most importantly, Conrad suddenly disappears out of nowhere. In order to find Conrad, Jeremiah and Belly goes on a seek to find him, but finds that the summer house might forever be gone. I really love how the author uses many descriptions to show how confused she is because of her relationship with the Fisher boys and how depressed she is for Susannah's death and her last summer. This book is full of many emotions and different ups-and-downs that Belly goes through, if you like a realistic romance novel, read this!

    This book isn’t as good as I think it is for one main reason - it sort of glamorises suicide. Although there are a lot of good descriptions and parts of the book that I liked, the different point of views made me very confused as to whose thoughts they were about. Although the characters were quite alright, Hannah was the most unreal one to me, and that’s because she killed herself just for the sake of getting sick revenge. However I think that the book is realistic though, because most teenagers are very sensitive and can be hurt by just a little joke. So Hannah didn’t really get tormented to the point of suicide in a really horrible revolting, this made the book a bit more realistic. Again, I think that Hannah was really the main character in the story and she just sounded so angry and bitter (maybe that’s cause she was about to commit suicide) but it just made the story seem a bit more unrealistic to me. I would give this book 3/5 stars, I just don’t understand all the hype about it.
