Imagine a dream of yours. Imagine that you have it but then it is taken away from you. This is what happened to the main character in Flowers for Algernon. His dream was to be smart, and he was smart until it was taken away from him. This book would be best for 8th graders and older.

I loved this book. I couldn’t put it down. It was very interesting. The book was all about Kate, a girl in high school, who has to deal with trouble in school, with friends, and her family. The worst thing is her dad sells vitamins and humiliates her.

Lost StoriesThe Lost Stories by John Flanagan

The Lost Stories was cool because it gave you answers to the questions you still might have about the Ranger’s Apprentice series. It was very detailed, especially in one about Tug, Will, and a wolf. It has very interesting facts about all the characters.

Eye of the WorldThe Eye of the World by Robert Jordan

I really enjoyed this book for a number of reasons. For one, Jordan gets into immense detail on basically everything in the book. Also, the world Jordan created is extremely huge and filled with multiple races and cultures. The book reminded me a bit of Middle Earth in The Lord of the Rings series.

StarclimberStarclimber by Kenneth Oppel

A stunning and remarkable ending to an enchanting trilogy. My original assumption was that the story was tacky and other unoriginal. As it turned out, the conclusion took me into the unknown of space with great vigilance, though the romantic elements were more than I usually take to.

the Running Dream book coverThe Running Dream by Wendelin Van Draanen

The Running Dream is an amazing book. One reason I like this book is because I can relate to the main character, Jessica. Jessica loves to run and so do I. Another reason I love this book is because there is always an interesting climax going on. It is not one of those books that you have to break into. I would rate this book 5/5 stars.
