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

Story Summary: August Pullman was a normal 10 year old kid who had never been to school before. His face didn’t look like normal kids faces. He had a facial disease called TCS that effected his look.

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!

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.

Kid Lawyer

Book Review by: James

Book by: John Grishham
Book Length: 288 pages

Story Summary: The place where it takes place is in the court room in a small town. A kid named Theodore Boone is the main character and he is a kid lawyer. First, there was a murder. Then, Theodore Boone got caught in the middle of the trail and has to decide what to do. If he comes forward a illegal Immigrant will be arrested and betrayed his trust. He knows whats right but he doesn´t know what to do. So, what will he do.

Your Review: What I liked about the book was how the author made the book to keep you guessing but you could never figure out what the awesere was. And to be honest, everything about this book was good. There was never a dull part. The book always kept me entertained and mainly because of my favorite character, Theodore Boone. He always was doing something I could never do. He knew so much about court that he was always one step ahead of everyone. I don´t like to read but this book kept me reading. If you like mystery books, this is a great book. And even if you don´t, I think you should still read it. This was my favorite book ever. You should read it.
