Clark the Shark is an amazing book. I totally recommend this book because I think it has a great lesson. It is about how he can control the way of acting because he gets too anxious or excited about learning and his teacher tells him something to control his way of acting. He tries but doesn't work. Will he keep on trying? Read the book to find out.

I am reading a book called The Hundred Lives of Lizzie Lovett. i'm not finished with it but its so good so far. I like mystery books and in the beginning of the story, it shared a mystery about a girl who has gone missing. People started thinking she was dead. Everyone was confused, but only one person didn't care. Her name was Hawthorn.

The book I am currently reading is Lulu Walks the Dogs by Judith Viorst. It is about a girl who walks three dogs: Pookie, Cordelia, and Brutus. I would recommend this book to anyone. She is raising money for something for herself. Fleischman is this guy who is annoying to Lulu. Then something surprising happens..... Read the book to find out what happens in the end.
A group of kids and I are reading a book called The Westing Game. We have not started the book yet but I can tell it is going to be a really good book. I think it is going to be a good book because in the back of the book it says that a millionaire gives his fortune to a complete stranger that is a bad person. I am really excited to start this book, I think it is going to have a lot of mystery.

I just finished a book called The War that Saved my Life. It was so sad! The story takes place in World War II. The main character is a girl named Ada. She has a deformed foot called clubfoot. She lives with her mom ,who is very mean to her and won't let her go outside or be seen by anyone else. But when the war starts, Ada's little brother Jamie is sent away for the war. Ada sneaks out with him. Once you finish this book, read the sequel, The War I Finally Won!
I read a book called The Day the Crayons Came Home.I really liked this book because it is about how the crayons write letters to their owner. They tell him where they are now because he didn't take good care of them. Then, they come back and the owner makes them a place to live so that they could feel more like home. This is an awesome story by Drew Daywalt.
I read Bad Luck Basketball by Jake Maddox. I like the book a lot. Brandon was going to shoot a layup but the ball got stuck. A person that works at the gym used a ladder and when he got the ball unstuck, it fell under the ladder. Brandon went under the ladder to get the ball. His teammates said," You have bad luck." So when they had a big game, he didn't want to go because he thought they might lose. He skipped the game. I would recommend this book so you can read about Brandon and the idea of bad luck.
I'm reading Out of My Mind. It's about a disfigured little girl who can't move, speak or walk. The book talks about what she thinks in her mind. It turns out that Melody, the character, is going to have a baby sister. You need to read it to learn about the journey Melody's going to have with her new baby sister.

I am reading a book called Sisters and some details are that the big sister wanted a little sister to play. The baby is in a bad mood and the other sister is bored because she wanted to play. At some point in the book, they are both grown up and they fight sometimes, but it is a good book.
I read a book called Infinity and Me. I liked this book because a girl wants people to notice her shoes and she asks people how they imagine infinity. They all tell her what they think. Then she asks her grandma and she can't believe her grandma didn't notice her shoes, but she did and then she tells her she liked the shoes. I liked it because I think it is trying to say that if no one tells you your shoes are pretty that doesn't mean they aren't pretty. I think you shouldn't think they are mean just because a small thing or get disappointed really fast. Read and create your own opinion of the book Infinity and Me by Kate Hosford.

The Losers Club by Andrew Clements
I am reading this book and I love it. Something that I like about it is that the author describes a lot about how the school and other settings look like. This author gives me many ways how the settings look which gives me a great picture. The main character is Alec. Alec gets in big trouble a lot because the only thing he does is that he reads most of the time in the class and does not pay attention. This is how far I have read.
When I read a book I want action, comedy and something I will want to read forever. A book that is a comic but has no action is Big Nate. I am not saying I don't like it. I actually love it. It's about a kid who has two friends. One has glasses and the other doesn't. The main character get's in trouble. There are multiple comics in one book but each is 4,6, or 8 pages long. It's is a good comic that you can read on Epic! The author is Lincoln Pierce.
I am reading Volleyball Victory. It is about a girl named Andrea and she plays volleyball. Then her friend Rose met a new girl that lives on her street and introduces her to Andrea while they are going swimming. When they try out for volleyball they find out they are going to have a new coach. The girls are anxious to meet him or her. The girl on Rose's street, Zoe, didn't have control over the ball. That was a connection to my life because when I started playing volleyball I couldn't control the ball.
I read a book called Carla's Sandwich. I really liked this book because it is mainly about how a girl makes rare sandwiches and people criticize her because they think her sandwiches taste bad but they haven't even tried them. One day they decide to try them and they find out that they are really good. I think a lesson the book is trying to tell is that if you don't know you shouldn't criticize. I also think it is trying to say is that you should always be unique and that you don't get affected by the opinions of others.
Pay It Foward by Catherine Ryan Hyde
I recommend this book. It shows that one person can make a HUGE difference in the world. It was the first day of school and Trevor entered his first class. Mr. St. Clark was Trevor's science teacher. The thing is his face is different. One half is regular and the other is different. Trevor asked what happened to his face and Mr. St. Clark replied by saying he was in the army and got shot. If you want to know how Trevor changed the world you will need to read the book.

The major problem or conflict of Among The Hidden is the family or population law. The law states that there only two children are allowed in each family. Later on in the book you meet Jen Talbot.

I'm reading Hatchet by Gary Paulsen. It all started whe13-year-old Brian's parents divorced. Brian was going to see his dad after they divorced. His mom bought Brian a hatchet. Brian was on a 2-passenger plane. While they were getting ready to lift off, the pilot started to get sick. Brian was smelling nasty odors. Brian looked back at the pilot and he saw that the pilot was having a heart attack. Brian panicked. He tried getting help by using the pilot's headphones. Only one person reached him but he was no help. All he told Brian to do was fly the plane, but Brian didnt know how, but he ended up flying in the air! A couple minutes later, he ran out of gas. The plane was just falling and falling and falling. Brian saw some lakes, so he crashed into one. He was so thirsty he drank some water then he threw up. He was hungry, too. All that was going through his mind were thoughts of a juicy hamburger and then he asked himself, "when are they going to find him?"
I read The Getaway by Jeff Kinney. It's about this boy whose family wants to go on a vacation to an island. They plan to relax from Christmas but chaos starts before they even get to this paradise. By the time they do get there, the chaos is out of control. It's a good book. Go read it.
I liked a book I found on Storyline Online. It was called The Garbage Barge and it was written by Jonah Winter. This book is about how a bunch of garbage was in a boat. Nobody wanted the garbage. I think the book has a really good message: people just make trash and then they don't care about it. In fact, we make so much that we don't even have control of it.
Today I will tell you about the book Christmas in Camelot by Mary Pope. So far, I have read pages 3-21. The book is good. In the beginning, the kids get an invitation to go to Camelot. They explore the castle. They feed them at the table. That's what I've read so far.
My favorite book this week was the Pittsburgh Steelers. Did you know that this team has played the most super bowls in the NFL? They have won 6 Super Bowls!!!! They also have great players. For instance, one of these was Ben Rothlesburger. He led the Steelers to a Super Bowl, and they won.
I am reading a book called Kylie Jean: Hoop Queen. I like this book because it is about this girl who did not know anything about basketball. Her dad signed her up so she could learn how to play basketball, The basketball team is called Honey Bees. That why I like this story.
