If nothing else, the fact that it is the middle of the summer and I am writing on a school blog should convince you that this book made an impact on me.
Where Things Come Back is about Cullen Witter's small-town life, which is dramatically shaken up when his younger brother, Gabriel, disappears. As the paths of the many characters cross and divide, a picture of what led to the disappearance and the mourning that follows appears. Cullen makes a convincing teenager.…Continue
I blame Mr. (R) Anderson. I really do. I used to be able to just read books and be done with them, but through all the books I've read this summer, there has been a little part of my brain thinking, "How will I blog about this? What adjectives describe the characters? Who else would enjoy this book?" Thank you, sophomore English class. So, here I am on a Saturday morning in July, blogging about the books I've read so far just because I want to.
For those of you who are…Continue

I just finished reading the book Black and White by Paul Volponi. This was the best book I have ever read in my life. I haven't read many books in my life, so it wasn't hard for this book to be my favorite. The scene where Marcus [one of the robbers] was handcuffed, it created drama because all of his friends and family were so disappointed and didn't think that he could do such a bad thing. It's a very dramitic book because two friends' friendship is in jeopardy. It shows how two…Continue

To me, the book, The Da Vinci Code, is a very slow book. It is because the book includes lots of descriptions. But it has a good amount of actions and twists, which keeps your brain working throughout the entire book. I personally like mystery books, so it was a good book to read, for me. I am close to finishing the book, and it seems like there will be more mysteries, even up to the very end of the book. There are two main characters in this book, who are the suspects of the murder…Continue
