I know that none of you actually thought that I would continue posting these, but here it is PART 5!
School books. I am not a fan of these. Whatever. Lets put my awful reviews up.
Once Upon a Road Trip by Angela N. Blount
Angeli doesn't fit in. So after her senior year, she embarks on a 2 month long road trip throughout America and Canada. She stays with her friends that she has met on the internet, and has some crazy experiences. And finds love.
Review: This book was pretty good for being nonfiction. Angie was a pretty annoying main character because she was overly awkward, seemed to force her religion onto people, had a massive inferiority complex, and was annoying when it came to relationships. I enjoyed how this story was true, and had element of a fictional young adult novel; including, a love triangle, and a strong message of: It gets better. The story was enjoyable, and Angie was just crazy enough never to give up on the trip. I liked reading this book, and it was a wonderful choice of nonfiction literature.
Swindle by Gordan Korman
Someone steals a baseball card. Someone else gets mad.
Review: I remember reading this book for school and absolutely detesting it, but if I was to at any time reread it, I probably wouldn't hate it as much.
The Other Wes Moore by Wes Moore
Two people with the same name grew up in similar environments, but turned out completely different.
Review: I read this back in the summer for my ninth grade lit class, and I didn't like it. The characters were all very boring and flat. I know that this is nonfiction, so he couldn't really lie about the changes that happened, but the problem is that they were not very good characters. I feel that this book was meant to be a nature/nurture book, but it didn't come off that way. It started out in Baltimore which is a pretty big city, and the characters were named Wesley Moore. Now, Moore is a very common last name, and Wesley is a bit different but in the end it is very often used. To say that it was a huge coincidence that two people in the same city have the same name, but turned out differently is just pointless. I never really liked any particular part of this book, and that is why it deserved only two stars.
So school books are terrible. These reviews are just as terrible. Its fun.
