Al Capone Does My Shirts by Gennifer Choldenko
Al Capone Does My Shirts

ruizc, July 14, 2007

This past spring break i actually got the opportunity to visit Alcatraz Island. It was spectacular! I had never been there and the self tour was just great! Before leaving we stopped at the gift shop and i purchased this book. Reading this book gave you the impression that you were on the island when the prisoners and several families were still there. After reading the book i was curious about Al Capone and decided to do a bit of research on him. I read several interesting facts but one that stands in my mind was that his favorite colors were Canary Yellow and Pea Soup Green!!!Over all I enjoyed the book and would definatly recomend it to any peson who just loves a bit of history in the mix!

A Series of Unfortunate Events #13: The End by Lemony Snicket
A Series of Unfortunate Events #13: The End

A real bumer to know it was the end of a great series. I would have rated a "5" if Lemony Snicket had not left me hanging with several unanswered questions!!!!

I have read this book several times over and over again. Each time I read it i cant get over the fact how truly amazing it is! Wilson Rawls is a genious of an author and I know that his story of boy and his loyal companions has touched several hearts.

Peaches by Jodi Lynn Anderson
Peaches

ruizc, July 14, 2007

Peaches is an unbelivably great book. As soon as i started reading i could not put it down! Through out the book you to feel connected to the characters, which makes putting it down depressing. I love to read a good book and it takes a lot to impress me for a book to be one of my favorites. I was impressed by the complete story line of Peaches and it is know one of my TOP favorite books! I am anxious to get my hands on the sequel The Secrets of Peaches. I'm hoping the sequel will be just as great as the first. If your looking for a great summer read Peaches is definatly the book for you.
