Prisoner B-3087 by Alan Gratz

I read the book prisoner B-3087 by Alan Gratz. It is part fiction but most of it is real. This book really made me appreciate the things I have and the people I love. This book also made me cry. I give it 5 stars!

Ella Enchanted By Gail Carson Levine

We are introduced to Ella, spirited, funny, clever Ella, but Ella is cursed.

Imagine having to obey every command anyone gave you, even if you didn’t want to , even if you would be harmed by it.

This is the curse Ella has. A curse that was to be a gift– the gift of obedience.

Ella longs to break her curse. This is the story of her search for the cure, and the only way that she can break it is to give up everything that she holds dear.

This is a engaging and wonderfully written novel that deserves five stars.

Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys

My name is Madeline and I am fourteen years old. I just finished reading “Between Shades of Gray” by Ruta Sepetys. The book is about a fifteen year old girl’s struggle to survive during World War II, and how she overcomes all of the obstacles with hope for the future. I would give this book 5 stars. I think that everyone should be aware of this difficult period of time.

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

4 stars

I definitely would recommend this book. It is a lengthy but easy read full of interesting mostly lovable characters. There is a lighter yet realistic take on Nazi Germany portrayed which helps the reader understand what exactly was happening during that time period.

Ascendant by Diana Peterfreund

Ascendant by Diana Peterfreund
Immersing myself into the second book of the killer unicorn series of
Diana Peterfreund called Ascendant, it is truly page turner with a
realistic take on fantasy. A continuation of the first book, it retains its
exciting, action-filled journey of Astrid in discovering her identity not
only as a warrior, but also as a protector of the man-eating unicorn
series. The ending brings a surprising twist with a deep, symbolic
realization by Astrid. I enjoyed the book and for anyone who enjoys a
controversial view at looking at unicorns, I would recommend it. I give it
4 stars.

Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

Yesterday I completed the book Frankenstein by Mary Shelley. I though that it was a good book. I had always assumed it was a book that was about an evil monster murdering people, but I discovered that it was really a tragic story of a creature who is hated by everyone simply because he appears ugly. It teaches readers to judge others not by what is seen on the outside but what is inside. It also teaches people that it is not prudent to hide large secrets from your family, especially when they might get them killed. For these reasons, I thought that Frankenstein was a good book.
