Book Reviews

Five Stars

I like it because it's well written and Collins wasn't afraid to include detail. My favorite character is Gregor. This book/series would probably be liked by Hunger Games fans.

Review by Colson, grade 6

The Absolute Value of Mike is a great book! I enjoyed reading it a lot! My favorite character is Past because he's so complex but yet so simple! I think anyone could read this book and enjoy it! There's something everyone can relate to in this book!

Review by Nell

Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen is a great book. In this book the author takes you back and forth between Jacob, who joined a circus around the 1930s after his parents died and he was unable to finish Veternairian school, and an elderly man who is living in present day in a nursing home. My favorite character was Jacob who is outgoing and is not afraid to stand up to people, even if they are the head of the circus. My least favorite character is August, who is the head trainer in the circus and abuses his wife Marlena and the elephant, Rosie. Overall I would recomend this book to anyone who likes romance and a good ending to a great book.

I loved this book because of the amazing characters and the concept of lifting the corners of the universe. My favorite character was Adam who jumps up and down yelling happiness when he is happy. I think people from ages 11-14 would like this book.

Review by Callan, Grade 6

I think this is a great book: Jack Higgins is a great author. I recommend it to any action and adventure reader. I love it. Even in the little action parts it is intense from all the other action. I highly recommend it.

Review by Mason, Grade 7

I like Katniss because she is string against the Capitol. I like Primrose, Katniss’s younger sister, because she stays strong while her older sister is in horrible danger. I also liked Ceasar Flickerman and Rue for their spirit. I think that people from ages 11-20 who like an action packed and inspiring story would like this. I loved this book because of amazing characters and storyline.

Review by Callan, Grade 6

I really liked this book because of it's crazy and mysterious storyline. I liked Sal's character because he seemed really mysterious at times. I also liked Miranda for her helpful attitude and for being different. I think if you like a good, different, and mysterious story, you should read this. I also think ages 10-20 would like this.

Review by Callan, Grade 6

I loved this book because it inspired me to help people in need. I did not like the stepmother because she is mean to people who can’t help their problems. I also loved this book because I learned things including language about Afghanistan. I think people from ages 11-14 would like this.
