Every Last Word
really liked it
I enjoyed the story that included OCD, bullying, friendship, depression, and acceptance. There was even room for a little romance. I don't have this one in my room. I'm shopping for a copy now. It also isn't in our library.
The Elite
liked it
I loved The Selection and also The One. I didn't love The Elite, but you have to read it to get to The One. They are available in our library and I have the first three in my classroom.
All the Bright Places

I Am Princess X
really liked it

The Name of the Star
really liked it

The Raft
liked it
This book was a little slow at times, but I enjoyed it because I enjoy survival books. Robie is an interesting character. There were also numerous facts presented about Midway and the birds and wildlife in the area. Available in our libr...
Elijah of Buxton
liked it
Good book. Nice historical fiction. When you start, it will seem slow and childish. Keep reading. It gets better. Don't judge the book by its cover. Available in our library F CURTIS.
