Alexandria d'Africa (2010)
3.92 of 5 Votes: 3
This book was nothing out of the ordinary. Your typical spoiled teen, always rebelling and finally gets a punishment. I thought a few elements were interesting, such as Alexandria's unexpected friendship with Ruth, but otherwise, this book fell flat for me. Alexandria's character isn't strong at ...

This. Book. Is. Amazing. I loved it sooooo much!!! I had to read it for school, because we had these book clubs where the teacher picked our books (I was in the Alexandria of Africa group, obviously). After we finished the book, we had to use the school's ipads to make a movie trailer for it with...

I would not consider myself having read this book because I stopped half of the way. I really liked some of the concept that the author was bringing forward. However, the main characters were not interesting and lifeless. They had all of the emotions but somehow it seemed as though they were not ...

Loved this book and its concept. It's part of a series, but can easily stand alone as its own story. DJ is an admirable character who has a lot of inspiring qualities. His grandfather's final request takes him on a journey that teaches him many valuable lessons about himself and life. I am ho...

The Bully Boys (2015)
3.82 of 5 Votes: 1
I would rate this historical fiction a 5/5 stars. I would do this because the book uses a lot of adjectives which really helped me visualize the terrific story. Mr. Walters included a lot of drama and cliffhangers in this book which made it impossible to put down. He made the characters do very c...

Ashton asked. “Why not?” Kia replied. “Sometimes we play until it gets dark.” “In my neighborhood they sometimes play until it gets light,” Ashton said. “What does that mean?” I asked. “It means that they play ball all night long. If I leave my bedroom window open, I can hear the sound of the bou...

Isaac yelled. The group of men, some standing and the rest on their knees, parted slightly to allow Isaac, the foreman at Sheepville, through. “Dice? You’re playing dice?” he asked incredulously. I scooped the dice off the floor, leaving the coins and a couple of bills sitting in front of the pla...

my mother said as she started to clear away the supper dishes. “I just assumed that you two would try out for any basketball team, anywhere, any-time,” she continued. “It’s not that simple,” I said as I started to put plates into the dishwasher. “It’s the school team,” Kia added. “And that’s a fo...

Our mother was gone. I looked over at Jack. He stood there, motionless, no expression on his face, staring out the window. “Jack?” He didn’t answer. He didn’t even turn in my direction or acknowledge that I’d spoken. “Jack,” I said louder. “What do we do?” He turned to face me. “We eat.” “What?” ...

There was a one-minute difference between the two, but both indicated that we were a tiny bit early. It was two minutes before eight, the time we were supposed to meet Coach Barkley and the rest of the team. All the time we’d been driving around picking up the other guys I could tell that my fath...

Mickey gushed. “It’s okay,” I said, trying to sound cool and casual. “Just okay?” he said as he gestured to the cars all around us in the parking lot. “For you this must be like dying and going to heaven.” “I guess it is a little bit better than okay,” I admitted. All around us, filling every spo...

Kia had run onto the street to rescue it. There wasn’t much to rescue. Purple rubber roadkill. “I can’t believe he did that,” I said. We stood there, by the rec center but out of sight of the basketball court. “The guy is a big, mean jerk. I hate bullies, just hate them,” Kia said. “I’m sorry.” “...

Mrs. Johnson began. “Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water.

I was trying to get a count of how many people there were in the house. There had to be close to a hundred kids. Thank goodness nobody else was going to get inside. Mike and Mo were working the door like a couple of bouncers, letting people out but not letting anybody else in. There were, of cour...

It is equally clear that there has been no war fought in which children were not those who suffered the most. Unable to flee, unable to defend themselves, unable to even understand, they have been the ones who have felt the effects of war the most. I know this because I was one of those children....

We sat around the little fire, sort of huddled on a tiny island of light in a sea of darkness. What else were we going to do? As long as I didn’t stare into the fire, I was amazed by just how far I could see beyond the circle of light. Not that there was much to see, but my eyes were adjusting. I...

The Finns had already finished and left, which didn’t really matter. It wasn’t like we could communicate with them. “You’re not eating your porridge,” Doris said. “Calling it porridge is stretching it.” “I must admit I’ve never eaten anything quite like this before,” Doris said. “I’ve never seen ...

Mr. Roberts yelled. We all stopped and held on to the balls, leaving the gym in silence. “I’m not going to say that was the worst practice in the history of basketball.” He paused. “Because I haven’t seen every practice in the history of basketball…but that was not very good. Although we are gett...

There were dishes, a couple of paintings, and winter clothing.

There had to be six or seven hundred pounds...

As they’d eaten, people had become more animated and talkative and some had wanted to stay and talk to Mac. The very last few stragglers had been the most reluctant to leave.
