    This movie is so cool that there is life, death, the Great Beyond and the You Seminar! I remember there was a name for the You Seminar but i forgot. Anyway, (SPOILER ALERT) Joe Gardener fell into a drainage and became a soul. Then he tried many ways to get back to earth once he got off the conveyor to the great beyond. But he fell into the you Seminar and i am not gonna spoil it anymore so sorry the the people who wanted me to spoil the movie bc sometimes people wants the people to spoil the movie since they have not watched it yet and I recommend you to watch Soul as it is very touching to me and I almost Cried for some reason

    "We'll crush their smiling faces."-Mask. Goggles, Headphones, Specs, and Bobble Hat have already beat Army and Aloha, but now they are facing off against Mask and Skull, who legitimately want to crush them like pancakes (and watch with a bowl of popcorn as they are defeated). But Team Blue has something that powers them through that Team Cyan and Team Purple don't. The power of determination and friendship.

    Jamie Grimm is a middle school student in a wheelchair who lives with the Smileys (his nickname for them since they don’t laugh or smile); his aunt, uncle and their three children who don’t have any sense of humor, and gets bullied by their older son. Jamie is on a mission; to be the greatest standup sit-down comedian in the world. He is a natural at joking; his brain is wired for it. After school and on the weekends, he goes to his Uncle Frankie’s Diner and practices his jokes on customers with a result of endless laughing. Then, his Uncle tells him about The Planet’s Funniest Kid Comic Contest. Without telling anyone, Jamie starts practicing jokes everywhere he can; with his friends Pierce: who has a vast knowledge, Gaynor: who has tattoos and a nose-piercing, Cool Girl: who thinks Jamie is a book-carrier, and are very close friends, and Gilda: the girl with the frizzy hair. He also practices with the Smileys and tries to make the un-laughable laugh. He wins first place for the city competition-but will he win the state? What I thought about the book: I Funny is very funny. Extremely funny. I laughed endlessly. James Patterson is a wonderful author. After I read his other middle school books, Middle School: The Worst Years Of My Life and Middle School: Get Me Out Of Here!; I raced to get this from the library. His books are almost like middle school diaries. It’s almost like he was writing his experiences from middle school. He writes so well. The pictures (by the awesome Laura Park) are a great addition to the book. Beautifully inked, they help you understand the story way better. So if you want some great jokes, for example (I almost busted a gut with this one) : “Hey, have you heard about the kidnapping?” ”No.” ”Don’t worry, he’s still sleeping.”; read I Funny. And if that doesn’t make you read it, then I don’t know what will.

    Wakefield was once an ordinary town-that was before the monster apocalypse took place. 42 days ago, the town was hit by waves of zombies, Dozers, Windged Wretches and a lot more monsters. 13-year old Jack Sullivan has been living in his tree-house ever since that day, when his foster family took off without him(he doesn't miss them). He is actually having fun in his tree house-he has armed it with catapults and moats, and has video games and supplies of Oreos and Mountain Dew from nearby abandoned stores. He gets to fight monsters and take action-filled photos just like he always wanted. The only thing is that he wishes he knew where his best friend Quint is, and he wants to rescue his crush June (wherever she is), and not that she knows he exists. One day he uses his Walkie, and finds Quint! Quint has been staked out at his own house, and has been busy with science experiments and preparing Big Mama(a super-awesome advanced car), for fighting monsters. Eventually Jack and Quint find an old bully Dirk, and the three team up. But Jack is dedicated to finding June and rescuing the damsel in distress. All the while he has to avoid Blarg, an interestingly smart monster who has it out for Jack. Will he succeed and survive in this new world? The story is told in a mixture of text and black-and-white comic book illustrations that is easy to read and follow along. I really liked the science involved in some of their adventures, like when Quint outfits Big Mama for battle. I recommend this book to elementary and middle school boys.

    Any and every resident of Timbers knows that no-one goes into Still Cove. Ever. But after a bully sends Nico's drone into Still Cove and he falls in after it, his friends Emma and Tyler, as well as Opal rush in to save him. In Still Cove they find a mysterious abandoned houseboat with a strange swirling black pool in the basement. They discover that when you are in it it can read your mind and will produce creatures from your mind, called figments. After nicknaming the pool the Darkdeep and exploring it, things start to get out of hand, with figments creating themselves and invading Timbers. Are they able to get the figments and the Darkdeep under control? Or will it all escape and rampage Timbers? To find out, you'll have to read the book! I rate it 5 stars and recommend it to anyone who enjoys mysteries, friendship, suspense, and being a little scared!

    3 stars—- I was supposed to read this book for school, but I wasn’t sure I’d like it. I normally don’t read historical fiction and I’ve always found it kind of dull, so I didn’t have high expectations for My Brother Sam is Dead. Unfortunately, this book did not exceed my expectations. First of all, there were the characters. My Brother Sam is Dead is told from the perspective of Tim, a ten-year-old kid who’s faced with the troubles and dangers of the Revolutionary War. Tim has an older brother named Sam. Sam is a Patriot, but that’s a problem in his family because his father’s a Loyalist. I feel like Tim wasn’t very well developed—he doesn’t do much in the story, and I think the book would have been more interesting if it had been told from Sam’s perspective. Tim just sits there when Sam and his father argue about taking sides in the war, and he doesn’t say ANYTHING. He does do some interesting things in the book, but most of the time, he just talks about time passing and how he misses Sam. I mean, B-O-R-I-N-G. Tim didn’t make ANY effort to rescue his father when he went missing, either. I constantly rolled my eyes at him. There were also many minor characters like Mr. Heron and Tom Warrups, who were interesting but appeared, like, ONCE in the book. I wish they’d gotten more of a spotlight. General Putnam was horrible, harsh, and rude, but in the “How much of this book is true?” section, the authors describe him as brave and loyal. Wait, what? The only character I actually liked was Sam, because his life as a soldier was pretty cool. Then, there was the plot of the book. There were many side-plots going on (like, Mr. Heron asking Tim to deliver a letter, Tim’s father dying) but none of these plots actually mattered. In the end, Sam just abruptly...died. The ending was like a deflated balloon—there was so much buildup, so much excitement—and then all of a sudden, it just went POP! But the worst part was, the authors didn’t even show how Tim grieved and got over Sam’s death. They showed him FIFTY YEARS AFTER SAM DIED. Tim’s now sixty-four years old, has grandchildren, and is living a happy life. I HATE it when authors create boring, hollow happily ever after endings. However, I enjoyed some things in the book. I liked reading about Mr. Heron—he was a really mysterious and fascinating character. I also enjoyed the interview with the authors, and the part where you could learn about games and toys from the Revolutionary War. So, my overall opinion of My Brother Sam is Dead: It wasn’t a bad book, but it wasn’t very good, either. The characters and plot could definitely use some work. I don’t think I’d recommend this book.
