The Book of Three (Chronicles of Prydain #1) by Lloyd Alexander
The Book of Three (Chronicles of Prydain #1)

aileen.sarabia789, June 11, 2010


The Book of Three is a tale, that takes place in the Middle Ages. Taran, the main protagonist, goes on a journey and faces The Horned King a couple of times. The Horned Kind is an evil man that always travels with his army, never alone. In my opinion, Lloyd Alexander does a good job in maintaining the reader active in the story and turning each page with excitement. The Book of Three is extremely action packed. Taran faces many jaw dropping adventures that make you keep on reading more and more. I recommend this book to middle school students, for it will be of an easier reading level for adults, but can be read as a fast read for adults.

Stuck in Neutral by Terry Trueman
Stuck in Neutral

aileen.sarabia789, June 10, 2010

The book Stuck in Neutral is an extremely touching story about a 14 year old boy that has cerebral palsy (C.P.) its not a disease, its a condition. Shawn, knows everything that is going on around him, but people think he is just sitting there suffering with his seizures. His father is the one person he thinks of this the most, but Shawn thinks his father wants to end his pain. Shawn cant control any of his body and he enjoys his seizures for it is the only time his soul can move out of his body and travel around places he wished to travel before. This story is really touching because it takes you into the different perspective of some disabled people and maybe that they are not really suffering when in their seizures. I would recommend this for anyone who is looking for a fast read, that is entertaining.
