Story Summary: The plot of this book is a middle school that mostly focuses on Callie and, twin brothers. Callie is obsessed with theater but she isn’t the best when it comes to acting or singing so, Callie found a hobbie that kept her close to theater- set design. Callie is a very fun girl to hang around with because, she is very kind. Callie also has a crush on someone and, you shall find out if you read! Through theater Callie meets twin brothers who are totally different! Justin is a dramatic and, fun guy who hopes to win the leading role in the musical, Moon Over Mississippi. While Jesse is the more of the quiet guy. Callie can’t tell if there’s a spark between her and Jesse… is there?

Your Review: I liked how there is so much drama between Callie and the twins, Justin and Jessie. I also liked how the story was about theater because, I would like to work back stage when i am in high school. I didn’t like Greg. I didn’t like how Callie and him shared a kiss but, Greg was still hung up on someone else… I guess that’s good for Callie so she won’t have to worry about him. My favorite character from DRAMA would probably be Callie! I love how she is such a good friend and her enthusiasm when it comes to theater. I think this book would and wouldn’t make a good movie. I think this book would be a good movie because, the book is balancing school and drama! On my other hand I don’t think this book would make a good movie because, I think this story is perfect as a comic… no real reason why. I think the the students that are to read DRAMA are, interested in drama and a little bit of romance because, drama and romance mostly happen in this story. I think I would recommend DRAMA. I think I would do so because, I really liked/loved this story. I think my peers SHOULD read this book because, IT’S INTERESTING. We sixth graders love drama and, who doesn’t love a good comic book. Even though comic books might be a deal breaker for book choice I think we would all enjoy it.

Cornelia and the Audacious Escapades of the Somerset Sisters

Book Review by: Jackson M.

Book by: Lesley M. M. Blume
Book Length: 272 pages

Story Summary: This book is about a shy, eleven year old girl named Cornelia who really likes book and dictionaries. She lives in a fabulous apartment in NY. Her mother and father are famous pianist. It sounds great, but every time she gets invited somewhere, it is because her parents are famous. Cornelia mother is never there due to her concerts. Cornelia doesn’t want to follow in her mom’s foot steps by playing piano. One day on the way up to her apartment, she see’s she has a new neighbor. She goes over to meet them. Will Cornelia make any new friends? Will Cornelia be embarrassed? Ashamed? Will she visit a lot? Find out in Cornelia and the Audacious Escapades of the Somerset Sisters.

Your Review: This book is amazing. It talks about Cornelia’s new friend, and how she has traveled around the world! It takes you on the adventures of her yet still talks about Cornelia’s daily life. It can get a little confusing at times, but will fill in blanks later. The ending is very sad! So be prepared. My favorite character is Cornelia because she is like me in lots of ways. She is shy and likes books. It would make a good movie, but wouldn’t be as good as the book. Students who like adventures, surprises , and fiction would like this because it has lots of that. I would recommend it because it is just amazing, and has a lot of adventures and surprises. This is a great book and would recommend it to everyone. Go read Cornelia and the Audacious Escapades of the Somerset Sisters!!

Martin because he wanted blacks to have the right to do things like the other people. Yes, Martin. Students who like Realistic Fiction. Yes because some people might like to see what happened in the civil war. yes it a good story

When her friends mom goes by her house to drop her off they get out of the car and she trips and falls. Then her mom has to take her to the dentist to get a tooth replaced that fell out when she tripped and fell. When they looked in her mouth they realized she need braces, she realized it would not be so bad to have braces, all of her friends did and they looked cool. I highly recommend this book, go read it for more.

Your Review: I liked how this book was interesting and you didn’t know what was going to happen next! This book is one of my favorite book, when I read it I never got bored there was always something happening. My favorite character was the main character because her life reminded me of my life, there is always something happening in my life!! I think this would be a great movie because a lot of people don’t like to read, but like to watch something. I love this book so much!!!
