Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
Thirteen Reasons Why

Rachellasarouras, March 30, 2011

This is an amazing book! It sucks in the reader who grows very attaches to the one character that is lost :( it just goes to show how our actions affect others. This book will give you a different perspective on life and will (hopefully) lead you to treat others better. I love this book, please read!

If I Stay by Gayle Forman
If I Stay

This book, if I stay, is the heart wrenching tale of life, death, and whats in between. The reader is immediately attracted to Mia, who is a very ordinary girl with an amazing talent at playing the cello. In moments her life is twisted beyond repair and she must make the most important choice of her existence. This is an amazing book, and of all the books I've read, it's my favorite :)

The Sword in the Stone by T. H. White
The Sword in the Stone

To explain WHY the book was so awful...

In this book, the author is very wordy, so it is hard to decipher what is really happening in the plot. This also leads to skimming the book which really confuses the plot. Other times, the author will skip along from one place to another, leaving the reader behind and very confused. If this book is to be read by someone I reccommend that they save it for when they are off to college, because it makes no sense to me. However, if you choose not to listen to my warning and do read the book: I reccommend a dictionary, because some of the words are either confusing OR don't exist.

For a seventh grader, I found this book EXTREMLEY boring.The author spent most of the book explaining how to sword fight. This is an awful book!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
To any teacher reading this:
