Sheyda accepts the part then there is some tension between the two friends.

Your Review: I like this book because it is realistic fiction. It tells a story that is not true , but could be true. It keeps me awake and interested in reading. In this book I didn’t really like the beginning because it was a little confusing. I did finally get the hang of it though.My favorite character was Shayda because even though she was shy at first during learning her parts for the movie she finally got all of her parts down.
I think this book would be a great movie because it always has something going on and never gets boring.The star of the show would be Sheyda because she is the main character in the book and always has problem , but finds ways to fix them. The students that would like to read this are students that like exciting things and are really into realistic fiction books.I would recommend this book because it tells a story that could happen to anybody and always keeps you reading. I think my peers should read this book because it is an exciting book and makes reading fun! Overall I believe everyone should read this book.

Story Summary: Travis Gardener is a normal standout QB by the time he enters middle school and is willing to put in everything when he plays football. Travis’s older brother plays QB for Gainesville University and the coach makes a promise that Travis will be on the team in the future but has to go through high school first. Travis is playing in the 9th grade and will be playing for the Gators.

Your Review: Top Prospect was a pretty good book and I would recommend you to read it. It is pretty interesting and there is many things that take place in the book. Some of Paul Volponi’s books are good the the final four so you should read some of his other books but Top Prospect is my favorite and possibly my favorite book that I’ve ever read.

Your Review: this book give me lots of information about Nikki life that I like to read.well there’s noting about the book that i don’t like except why did they make the book with bullies and some kids can get the idea of bullying harmless kids they don’t know or got to meet.well Nikki Maxwell is my favorite character because I just think it very nice to make this cause there might be people out there who read this feel they are not the only one with this bullying problem. people who have bullying problems with someone they don’t like. and no this book is not fit to be a movie because it’s not likely for or to me. it very inspiring for many people like me.

Derek Jeter Hit & Miss

Book Review by: Jonas

Book by: Paul Mantell
Book Length: 208 pages

Story Summary: Derek Jeter is on a little league team with all his really good friends. He thinks they are really good. Derek has never won a championship before, in fact, he has never even made the playoffs. He has a kid on his team that is new to school. His name is Dave Hennum. All of the kids at school make fun of him, even Derek´s friends. Derek is Dave´s only friend. Dave´s parents make lots of money and his house is huge. If Derek´s team wants to win, they are going to have to be nice to each other and include each other, including Dave. Will Derek´s team get along, or will they go down hard.

Your Review: I loved this book because it was interesting. I loved there was always either a problem to be solved whether it was Derek getting into trouble or Dave getting bullied. It was a very cool book. The author, Paul Mantell made the book to where you just couldn´t put the book down. You were so anxious to see what happened next. My favorite character was Derek because he was always helping his family out and being nice to Dave and all his other friends. I think it would make a good book because all the stuff in the book had the same effect of the movie. Derek would star in the movie because he was the main character. The students that would love to read this book is 5th to 7th grade because it is about 200 pages long and it is very entertaining for this age. I would recommend it because if we are being honest, I do not like reading but when ever I had time, I would pick the book up and read it. I do not think it is a good idea for the peers next book choice because if you do not like sports, you would not like the book. That is my opinion on the book Derek Jeter Hit & Miss

He got made fun of and doesn’t have many friends except one boy named Jack Will. Jack doesn’t care what his friend looks like. Will things changed for Auggie? You will have to read to find out!

Your Review: I really enjoyed the book Wonder and in fact I have read it 3 times in total. One thing I liked was that it has such a good message that you shouldn’t judge someone on how they look. This book actually just came out with a movie and I really want to go see it. I would for sure recommend this book to a friend or student. Once I started to read this book I couldn’t stop. It only took me about a week to read this book because it is so good. I wanted to read it at any time I could. My favorite character beside Auggie would have to be Jack Will. He didn’t care what Auggie looked like he was a friend to him the whole time. The book Wonder was amazing and I would love to read it again. You should definitely read the book Wonder!

Hard Luck

Book Review by: Kaiden

Book by: Jeff Kinney
Book Length: 217 pages

Story Summary: Greg has nothing going his way. His best friend Rowly had ditched him. He trice to chance it. So he took a leap of faith to find out if his look will turn around for him.

Your Review: I liked this book because it was funny to see the all the funny thing that happen to greg. For instance his best friend ditching him and more that you have to read. I dind’t like how it all happend to him and I thought what if that was me it would suck. My favorite character was Rowly because he was just so clueless about every thing. For some weird reason he just made me laugh at the things he did.
I think It would be a good movie because it is just a good and funny book to read.
I think Jason Drucker should because he was Greg in the other movies. Just the ones who like to see people get hurt inside. No because I don’t relly like these types of books. It depends if you are looking for a certin book like this then yes but if not no.
