    Do you know what it is like to have a brother with autism? Well in the book rules you will know.In The book Rules by Cynthia Lord there is a girl named Catherine and she has a younger brother with autism his name is David. The book takes place at their house and OT which is speech therapy for David. In this book the protagonist is Catherine because she is loving and caring for her brother. The antagonist is David autism because its makes it so Catherine has to watch over him all the time. She can’t have friends over because she is sacred that he is going to do something embarrassing. The first conflict in the book is when Catherine gets a new neighbor and she wants to come over to her house all the time but Catherine is scared that David is going to do something bad. The second conflict in the book is when her friend Jason that she meet at David's therapy class invites her to his birthday part but the girl next door wants her to got to a dance that she is going on the same day so she doesn't know what to do. But at the end of the book she starts realizing that it is not David's fault. Catherine writes speech cards for Jason and also wrote rules for Divided. I would recommend this book to someone that is 6th or 7th grade that want a quick and easy book to read.

    csal1617's book review was featured in Let's Pretend This Never Happened (Dear Dumb Diary, No. 1).
    The name of this book is Dear Dumb Diary. The author is Jim Benton. The book Dear Dumb Diary is a very good book. The setting is at her school. The time and period is modern time period. The protagonist, Jamie Kelly, she is nice and funny. The antagonist, Angelina, she is pretty and she has pretty blonde hair. There were two conflicts. Jamie likes this kid and Angelina stole him. The other confit is she is probably going to get in F because her dog ripped up her project. Both conflicts were solved the same way. I do not want to give it away so all I will say is Angelina helped. If you are in 6th of 7th grade this is a good book for you. I liked this because it was a funny book and relates to my grade. This book is about Jamie Kelly and her dairy. Jamie was telling us in her diary that her mom is not a very good cook and if she doesn't eat. Her mom gives her a big speech on the hungry kids would love to have this food. Jamie said that she always eats it so she doesn't get that speech that much. When she was walking into class she knew she was going to be first. At the end, it got a lot better and now Jamie and Angelina are good because Jamie did not have a project. When she got called up Angelina knew that she did not have a project . Angelina said they worked on the project together and Angelina wanted to help Jamie because Jamie took the blame when Angelina throw the meat loaf. I would recommend this book to a 6th or 7th grader because this could really happen in middle school.

    Have you ever been to the Olympic trials or an actual Olympic event? If you read Tumbling by Caela Carter you’ll feel like you have a front row seat to the gymnastics Olympic trials. This book takes place in Baltimore, Maryland. You’ll focus on the antagonists Grace Cooper, Monica Chase, Wilhelmina Parker, Camille Abrahams, and Leigh Becker who are competing to go to the olympics. At the same time the girls could be the protagonists towards each other. They get competitive so they won’t be nice to each other. The girls also have their coaches being protagonists too. Some coaches are fine to their athletes but for Grace it’s a whole different story. Her coach is her dad so he thinks he’s being supportive but he’s actually dragging Grace down. The first conflict the characters are facing is their friendship. Their competitiveness is so strong they could enter the trials as friends but leave as enemies. The second conflict their facing is that they really need to push themselves hard to make it to the Olympics in Rome. The turning point in the story is when the Team USA gymnastics coach Katja Minkovski and the Olympic selection committee make their decision on who will go to the Olympics. Only 5 girls will leave as future Olympians 3 will be alternates and 4 will walk away with nothing but the experience of being at the Olympic trials. I would recommend this book to any girl who is in 7th grade through high school. I would also recommend this book to a reader who likes realistic fiction and gymnastics. WARNING: Vulgar language for any younger readers.
