Naruto by Kishimoto

screen480x480“I’ll never give up, that’s my ninja way….I’ll never die until I become a hokage.” Naruto was born to Kushina Uzimaki and Minato Namizaki. Naruto’s father is the 4th hokage legendarily and the fastest ninja alive. His mother had the nine tails and passed it on to Naruto. Naruto reminds of dragonball because of how they would fight for the people they love and ones that cannot fight themselves. They also want to reach their goals like when Naruto wanted Sasuke to come to the village and be good, and Goku wanted Vegeta to be good. This book stands out because sometimes people would act like Naruto because the way he acts. Naruto would sacrifice his life for his friends, and it encourage other people help other s who are getting bullied. It would be helpful to my reader because it would encourage them to do anything they want. They would never give up, and always willing to help anybody who’s hurt. I would give this a 5 out of 5 and I think people all over the world should read this.

Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss

green eggs and hamRecommended by Daija W.

Green Eggs and Ham is a very good book to read. Everyone knows about this book. If you don’t like green eggs and ham or if you do I think you would love this type of book. This book is about a talking cat that absolutely hates green eggs and ham. You would also like this book if you like poems, and that’s what this book is full of (poems). This book remindes me of The Cat in the Hat because in both books they rhyme, have poems, and the same author. The thing that makes this book unique is how it has a talking animal and how he hates green eggs and ham. My advice to readers is if you’re a kid you would love this book. More advice is if you don’t want to read a funny, fiction kid book, don’t pick this book to read.

 

Drama High : Holidaze by L.Divine

HolidazeRecommended by Mya B.

Drama High: Holidaze is a good book. It’s about a lot of teens, their drama and their relationships. If you’re looking for a book like this, then this is the book for you. My book is about a teen who is struggling and having problems with her sleeping issues. Drama High: Holidaze reminds me of the book, Speak, and how the girl got raped in Speak and is scared to tell people she got raped. In Holidaze the girl has sleeping problems and doesn’t want to tell friends or teachers. What makes this book unique or stand out is that it is based on teens, it’s funny and talks more about drama and relationships. My advice about the book is I thought it was going to be boring from the beginninng but I kept reading and it became a good book so I read the whole book. I would give this book 5 stars.  You should read this book if you like drama and relationships with funny characters.

A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole

duncesRecommended by Mr. Muth

“I mingle with my peers or no one, and since I have no peers, I mingle with no one.”
― John Kennedy TooleA Confederacy of Dunces

In the novel A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole, we follow the life of Ignatius J. Reilly, a large and flatulent man living in New Orleans.  Ignatius is a modern day Don Quixote because of his eccentric, humorous and often delusional lifestyle.  A Confederacy of Dunces reminds me of Humboldt’s Gift by Saul Bellow because both main characters are self-righteous and creative about their personal philosophies on life, however ridiculous those might be.  In both novels, it is truly the main character that makes the story.  This novel is unique because the author that wrote it was turned down by countless publishers before Toole eventually took his own life.  Eventually his mother had the book published, and it won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1981.  This is one of the only novels that I actually laughed out loud while reading on more than one occasion.  The reader is immediately hooked to the characters and story making it nearly impossible to put the book down.  Although some of the subjects tackled in A Confederacy of Dunces are a bit strong, the story can be viewed as thought provoking and hilarious at the same time.  I would give this book a 5 out of 5 stars.  You should read this book if you have a good sense of humor and appreciate an easy read every now and then.

The Last Straw (Diary of a Wimpy Kid Book 3)

Recommended by Shamarr H.

If you have ever been annoyed by your family you can relate to this book. Greg goes through family and school problems and tries to be popular at school. He’s annoyed by his family because they’re trying to make him be someone he’s not. Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: The Last Straw reminds me of Winn Dixie because Opal and Greg both are uncool kids.This book is unique because the stuff in this book shows what a middle school kid goes through. Although I really like this book, I thought the book was not really good on detailing stuff sometimes, like when they say he’s annoyed by his family they really didn’t explain why.I would give this book a 4 out of 5 stars.You should read this book if you like funny and goofy books.
