- Gregor and the Code of Claw by Suzanne Collins
I like it because it's well written and Collins wasn't afraid to include detail. My favorite character is Gregor. This book/series would probably be liked by Hunger Games fans.
Review by Colson, grade 6
The Absolute Value of Mike is a great book! I enjoyed reading it a lot! My favorite character is Past because he's so complex but yet so simple! I think anyone could read this book and enjoy it! There's something everyone can relate to in this book!
Review by Nell
Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen is a great book. In this book the author takes you back and forth between Jacob, who joined a circus around the 1930s after his parents died and he was unable to finish Veternairian school, and an elderly man who is living in present day in a nursing home. My favorite character was Jacob who is outgoing and is not afraid to stand up to people, even if they are the head of the circus. My least favorite character is August, who is the head trainer in the circus and abuses his wife Marlena and the elephant, Rosie. Overall I would recomend this book to anyone who likes romance and a good ending to a great book.
