The Boy in the Striped Pajamas  by John Boyne

"This book was about the holocaust from the perspective of a young boy."

Sparrow

 




Sparrow by Sarah Moon

4 Stars

"This book is about a girl who attempted to kill herself by jumping off her school's roof. When someone asks her why she did this, she denies that it happened. When they ask her why she was on the roof in the first place she doesn't answer. Read this book to find page turning events, memorable characters, and much more."

Animal Farm

 



Animal Farm by George Orwell

4 Stars

"This book was an interesting read because it replicated and demonstrated Soviet Russia's pre-communism system by using satire to show it on a farm with animals. The animals have human like personalities and greed for power."

The City of Ember

 



The City of Ember by Jeanne DuPrau

5 Stars

"The City of Ember is a very good book with a unique plot. It is about a city of people that are in trouble. They are running out of supplies and the power keeps going off. There's no sun so if the power goes out the city is pitch black. The characters in the story go on an exciting adventure to save the city. The end of the book has a really nice plot twist
