The Time Traveler’s Wife reviewed by Sammantha

The Time Traveler's Wife book coverI loved The Time Traveler’s Wife, it is an amazing book, and it takes place in Chicago which is kinda cool. It is about a man and a woman an their life as he unexpectedly travels through time. It is funny, and sad, and exciting, and I really enjoyed it. For anyone who was thinking of seeing the movie, read the book first, because I can’t imagine the movie does it justice.

A Child Called “It” reviewed by Miss MacNab

A Child Called "It" book coverA Child Called “It” is one of the saddest books I have read.  It is considered one of the most popular books to read in the nonfiction section, so I gave the book a shot.  As I read through the book, Dave explained his life story about being a child abuse victim.  I was so unaware that parents do these types of torturous “games” to innocent children.  David did not give up though, he believed deep in his heart that one day he would get away from his mother and find a family that would love him for who he is.  It is a very inspirational story that makes you feel thankful for your loving family and friends.

Lucky T reviewed by Urszula

Lucky T book coverLucky T is one great adventure. My friends inspired me to read it because it was a great page turner. As soon as I read the inside cover I knew this book would be the one for me.

Carrie is a girl who has all the luck she could possibly have. From the cutest boyfriend in school to being the only sophomore girl on the varsity basketball team. When her mom sends her Lucky T accidentally to India, Carrie is determined to get it back, but along the way she realizes that there is maybe more to life than having luck.

I really enjoyed this book. It was indeed a great page turner. I liked how Carrie goes above and beyond to find a silly T-shirt. To travel around the world like that was crazy, but maybe it was meant to be. It leads her to new friends, love and a completely new life. The new Carrie at the end of this novel might just surprise you.

My only dislike about this book was the author’s lack of the setting. It didn’t make me feel like I was really there. Kate Brian should have included more detail about Indian culture, people’s lives and their customs.

You wouldn’t like this book if you are looking for teenager drama and high school life. Some is portrayed at the beginning, but most of it is about Carrie’s life in India. If that is all you read you could still give it a try and enjoy this adventurous novel.

If you love adventure and romance then this book is perfect for you. As a ninth grader in high school I really enjoyed it. This book is great for high school students because it shows how life actually is beyond high school walls. It also shows how people can change themselves, make enemies best friends, and be a more helpful person to others.
