The Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien

lord of the ringsRecommended by Darrion G.

Fighting for the right thing is a great thing to do. The main conflict of the story is all about the ring of power. Everybody wants this one particular ring. There is one kid who is brave enough to protect it on a journey to destroy it. The Harry Potter books remind me of this because they also show the courage of a young man who has to constantly save the school from dark wizards. To me it shows courage and determination and that is sort of someone like me. Actually read and take in what the book is showing you about courage and bravery. This book deserves a 5 star rating.

Do you like reading about kids going through hard times? In this book a kid named Gerald lives with his aunt who dies. So now he has to move in with his mom who he hasn’t seen in forever. The only good thing he gets out of living with his mom is that he meets his little sister. This book reminds of a movie called “Mister and Pete,” because it also had kids going through hard times. This book is unique because it only takes a strong kid to go through so much and make it. I think you should read this book because its can teach you things about life.
