Review
The story presented in this book was just like your typical survival story that you'd find in other books, though, it has a little twist because the main characters are children around the ages of 9 to 13. You'll enjoy it if you like survival situations!  Place a hold!

I Survived the Nazi Invasion, 1944
Author

Review
This book was another great addition to the I Survived series. It was was an easy book, but the story and message was clear. The concept of the book could be understood by kids of all ages because it was narrated by a young boy.  Place a hold!

Wow. This book was confusing. Maybe it was the "language" that the narrator spoke in, or the fact that everything was hard to picture. It was also really long, even if it was only 180 pages. (The text was really small and hard to read.) This book was a dry read (I'm a preteen), and if it was not the summer reading book for my school, I probably wouldn't have gotten it out from the library.

I would recommend this book to adults. It was boring for me, so I would think it would be boring for teenagers and children too.  The Outsiders

Review
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

This book was a great addition to the Diary of a Wimpy Kid Series. It was filled with humor and excitement like all of it's other companions. I look forward to read the next book in the series!!  Place a hold!
