Book Cover Divergent
Veronica Roth

I would really recommend Divergent, especially if you are interested in doing some reading over spring break. Divergent is one of my favorite books. THE FACTS: Who: A few of the main characters are Beatrice (or Trice), Four, Christina, Will, Eric, Peter, and Al. What: This part is a little confusing. There are five factions (erudite, abnegation, amity, candor, and dauntless). When you come of age, you take a test and that will decide what faction you are in. (Erudite is smarts, Abnegation is self-sacrifice, Amity is friendship, Candor is honesty, and Dauntless is bravery.) When: This book is set in the future. Where: This book is set in Chicago! Why: Apparently, it is to keep the city safe. PLOT: Beatrice (or Trice) is Divergent. That means that she doesn’t fit into one faction. She could be killed because of it. So she chooses Dauntless and pretends that it is what she scored on the test in order to stay alive. REVIEW: I would rate this book 4 stars. It had a great plot, but the writing was a little slow. CAUTION: This book has some romance, just FYI. It has a LOT of adventure, so if you want an exciting read, this is for you. I think this book could be from ages 10 and up.

Magic book I want a dog

My favorite part was when May took a piece of salami and dogs started following her all around town. It was my favorite part because ten dogs were following her for one slice of salami.

Magic book The idea machine
Myra Sanderman

I read many stories from a magazine but my favorite one was The idea machine. It was my favorite one because Alex gave away all of his ideas and had no more ideas of carnival games. Then, he got an idea. His booth said... Need an idea? Ask me! Win a prize if I can not come up with an answer to your question. To Alex's surprise there was a long line of folks.

My favorite part was when Heidi got a horse named Fred. It was my favorite part because Fred is a very weird name for a horse.
