  2. The first book i’m reading is Sisters by Raina Telgemeier. I have read Sisters before a whole bunch of times its a cool book you can say. The book Sisters is about these two sisters that are always fighting. Their names are Raina and Amara they fight a lot, that’s why their parents go out of town to try and get Raina and Amara to stop fighting.

  4. I Recommend The Book ” If I Stay ”
    If I Stay is a young adult novel by Gayle Forman published in 2009. The story follows 17-year-old Mia Hall as she deals with the aftermath of a catastrophic car accident involving her family. Mia is the only member of her family to survive, and she finds herself in a coma. Through this coma, however, Mia has an out-of-body experience. Through this, she is able to watch the actions around her, as friends and family gather at the hospital where she is being treated. We follow Mia’s stories and the unfolding of her life through a series of flashbacks. Mia finds herself stuck between two worlds; the world of the living, and the world of those who have moved on. Mia realizes that she must use her past and her relationships to make a decision for her future. Her options are to stay with her grandparents and the love of her life, Adam, or to move on and avoid the pain of living without her mother, father, and little brother.

      • I haven’t watched the movie because I wanted to read the book first. So far the book is going well! I can’t wait to finish it!

      • I Think it would’ve been better if you read the book first because often when you watch the movie first you expect what you saw in the movie, but whatever . The Book If I stay is a really good book definitely would recommend if you like books where it unravels the story eventually

        Like

      • I hope you like the book even though you watched the movie first , because most of the time when I do that I really expect what I watched in the book . But if you like books where the story unravels over time this would be a great book for you

    • I also read if I stay. In my opinion, the book was quite interesting yet in a good way. It was awfully sad but the way the author explained each situation with explicit details was amazing and so informative.It left you with such insight yet it was still unpredictable.I highly recommend this book.

    • I really enjoyed “if i stay”. Although the book was very sad it was very interesting in quite the good way. I particularly enjoyed how the author included explicit details with every situation. It left you with a satisfying amount of insight yet with such a story it was still slightly unpredictable. I highly recommend this book.

  8. The second book im reading is smile by raina Telgemeier. What i know about this book is that the author of this book is the same author of sisters. Although this book is not about the two sisters it’s about how raina falls and knocks out her teeth. So she has a lot of problems with her teeth but thats not the only problem her friends are pretty mean to her. So basically she is just trying to survive.

  21. I read Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. In this book a woman named Amy Elliott meets this man named Nick Dunne. They become married after a couple years of them first meeting. Unfortunately Amy encountered some painful experiences that were caused by her husband. She later found out he was abusive. Nick hit her any time his anger flared up. Which was quite often. Amy kept a diary to explain her day in and day out experiences with her husband. She started planning her ‘disappearance” act. On their 5th year anniversary she went missing. Little did anyone know she was the cause of her disappearance. Amy faked her kidnapping. She was very intelligent, so intelligent to where she tricked everyone that she was kidnapped. Including the police,her husband to a certain point,her town,family,etc. In the end Amy tricks her husband into staying in a relationship with her. I would say the strongest point in this book is when Amy goes missing,and you later found out she faked it. It was mind blowing,because it was the wildest turn out to that situation possible. The weakest point in the book was when Nick Dunne would react to any situation. He was nearly emotionless,although thats partially his character. Over all this book was amazing. The unexpcted turnouts were quite fascinating. I highly recommend this.

  22. Witch & Wizard Book 1

    James Patterson

    Witch & Wizard is about a dystopian world where if you are born with strange powers you are labeled as ‘Dangerous’ and must be contained from society in a very dangerous prison where to survive you have to be fast and follow rules. The story follows siblings named Whit and Whisty Allgood as they are put into containment with others like them. They soon escape and plan to break everyone else out with non captured different people. I have only gotten my hands on the first book so I don’t know what happens after the end of book 1 but I hope to find it when school starts. I like this book because it has fantasy and magic I have only seen on tv and comes i a series so I always have a book to read.
