Extraordinary by Miram Spitzer Franklin

23130145This book will make you laugh and cry at the adventures in this book. In this book a young girl has an illness and her best friend does everything she can to help her,since she can’t speak or walk, she is doing everything she can to help her including counting down until her surgery day. This book reminds me of ”Thirteen Reasons Why”,because one friend cares for the other friend so much that they fight for that friend until the end. The thing that makes this book unique is that the girls friend does everything for her and goes out of her way until the day of her surgery. At first it was a little sad, but then started to be understanding and excited. I would give this book a 4.5 out of five stars.You should read this book if you like books with fantastic best friends and who love each other no matter the challenges they go throw.

Something like Hope by Shawn Goodman

something-like-hopeRecommended by Ashyrha D.

When life knocks you down you have to get right back up. Sometimes when your young you do dumb things but after a while you grow from it. Shavonne wants to change but never thought it was this hard. Something like Hope reminds me of real life situations that you are given but something you have to do alone. Some of the scenes will surprise you, you wouldn’t expect it to come out that way. It starts a little slow in my opinion but soon you’ll learn her struggle. I would give this book a 4.5 out of 5 stars. You should read this book if you like Realistic drama/real life situations come to life in a book.

Have you ever wondered what I’d be like to see yourself in and as someone else? Confused? So was Sasha Lawson, awakening in a parallel universe held hostage by her dates analog. Sasha Lawson has always had an extraordinary imagination that started when her grandfather would tell her stories of princesses in parallel universes that looked just like her. She also had an ordinary life, that is until Grant came, and then so did Thomas. But Thomas and Grant are one in the same. Thomas came from a parallel universe to take her back with him so she could pretend to be the princess of that world while the army there tried to free her from her captors who had taken to cause riot in their world. She must pretend to be the princess, her analog, or doppelganger, to keep their nations at peace. This book reminds me of A Wrinkle In Time. They are closely like each other because the both are kind of futuristic and fantasy based. These books closely compare to each other. What makes this book unique is it talks about parallel universes and a opposite but the same world of Earth. I didn’t know that the chapters that are italicized are really Sasha seeing through her analogs eyes. I would rate this book a 5 out of 5 stars rating. It’s awesome

Everyone is special in some kind of way, some more than others especially if you can control one of the four elements. Its about a boy named Gabriel and how he can control fire and having a hard time hiding it from the world. When his three brothers basically bath in their element. He starts to get accused of arson for something he didn’t do. Having a hard time in math class makes him make new friends, Books that are in the same genre Elemental by Antony John. Whats makes this book unique is that it puts the characters in high school problems and real life situations. The police are there, people are there so they have to watch themselves. Enjoy the book. My rating for this book is a 5/5 because it always had my attention.

How would you feel if you had to spend a week at your arch enemies’s school North Hampton Hills International Academy for international exchange student week. Nikki Maxwell just found out the she was going to be spending a week at North Hampton Hills International Academy. For the rich, famous,and royals.Also were Nikki’s arch enemy Mackenzie Hollister just transferred to after she post a video of her self freaking out because a bug was in her hair. Then tells her parent’s that Nikki posted the video of her. Now lets see who well be popular at North Hampton Hills International Academy. My comparison to this book is Diary of a Wimpy kid because they are both facing the challenge of middle school and making friends and making enemies.And trying to get there crush’s to notice them. What makes this book stand out to me is that all teenagers have problems but Nikki Maxwell as the problem of a regular teenager times hundred. With her enemy Mackenzie, her littler sister Briana,her crazy best friends Chloe and Zoey, and her crush Brandon. When reading dork diaries you could never be bored with all the drama and craziness of this book is like looking in the mind of a teenage girl. i would rate this book a 5 out of 5
