Review
I would rate this book four stars. It was a little childish for me and my reading level.

The book Wonder was entrancing. It gave me a new perspective of how things are, and taught me important lessons, one being " don't judge people based on their looks."

I would recommend this book to kids, pre-teens, and teens. It is more for kids, but anyone can read it and enjoy it.   Request this book!

This book felt a bit slow-paced to me at the beginning portion of it, but as it progressed, I felt it becoming more interesting. It teaches you an important lesson about figuring out who you really are and becoming a better person.  Touching Spirit Bear

I personally enjoyed this book more than many others that I have read. The story is one that kids who are in middle school can kind of relate to. It was basically giving me the message that it doesn't matter how you look on the outside, what's on the inside really matters. Even though in most school environments kids do the opposite, it really made you feel that that motto could work in schools, with a bit of hope and courage. August Pullman, the main character, and his friends showed exactly that.  Wonder

The story presented in this book was very well-written, but I felt that the personality of the main character was very hard to relate to. Overall, the problem and the process that the main character went through to fix it was enjoyable.  The Report Card

The Fault in Our Stars
Author

Review
I would rate this book 5 stars. I loved it so much, and have reread it over 5 times!

OMG! This book was amazing! It might be the best book that I have read, EVER! The Fault in Our Stars was tragic, funny, and meaningful. Sometimes I was close to tears and other times I was laughing out loud. I am so glad that my friends recommended it to me.

It is also a movie, so if you read the book, see the movie AFTER!!

I would recommend this book to pre-teens and teens, and mostly girls. It is more of a feminine book because there is a lot of emotion in it and no action.   Request this book!
