The first book in the Percy Jackson series is a success and is really interesting. It starts off with a normal kid named Percy who finds out that he isn’t who he thought he was. His life changes when he finds out that his field trip supervisor is really an evil monster trying to kill him. Then in a stunning turn of events Percy learns that everything isn’t how he thought and his dad is closer than he may think. This book is great for everyone who likes adventure or who has liked the Harry Potter or Pendragon series. You will always want to keep reading.
At school, everyone in my grade had to read one Newbery book. I picked Roller Skates. Roller Skates is about a girl, Lucinda, who has to go to an “orphanage”. That’s what Lucinda calls it, “I’m a temporary orphan!” Her mother takes the whole family to Europe, but has to leave Lucinda behind. Ms. Nettie owned the house along with Ms. Peters. Lucinda’s mother shouldn’t have been worried because little did she know; Lucinda can make friends of all kinds!
Have you heard of Stalin deporting innocent people from Lithuania, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, etc. to the frozen land of Siberia? If not, Between Shades of Gray will expose the horrors of the life of a small Lithuanian family, in Kaunas, consisting of four people: Papa, Mother, Lina (15), and Jonas(9). It all begins with one night when NKVD soldiers barge into their small tidy home to be taken on a sickening trip in cattle cars to Siberia.(1941) They experience many hardships and some saddening deaths occur. There is no privacy, but there are strong emotions. The author, Ruta Sepetys, is a daughter of a refugee who suffered these cruel days. This is now my favorite book because now I know what happened to some of my relatives; they were Lithuanians. This is not a book about jokes; this is TRUE.
