I cried, I pumped my fist in triumph! When You Were Mine is as heartbreaking as it is inspiring, with enough sizzling romance and compelling drama to make Shakespeare jealous.  When You Were Mine

I would rate this book 4 stars. It was an easy book for me, and I speed through it in less then a day.

I can't wait to read the rest of the series! This book was full of action and comedy, and was just a good read.

I would recommend this book to children. Pre-teens, teens, and adults would find it immature and an easy read.  Request this book!

The story was well-paced throughout the book and it had a great climax and resolution. The experience that the character went through was harsh and hard to relate for some people.  I Survived the Bombing of Pearl Harbor

Raina wants to be a normal 6th grader. But after Girl Scouts one night she trips and falls, injuring her front teeth severely. She has a long and frustrating journey with surgery, headgear, braces and a retainer with fake teeth! On her trip from middle school through high school you'll discover her artistic voice, true friendship and more! I recommend this for anyone who's looking for a short read and ages 12+!  Place a hold!

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
