The Looking Glass Wars
Author
Frank Bedder
Review
This is a spin off of Alice in Wonderland and frankly it's not a good one. It was a boring book. Alice is thrown through the looking glass to save her life. She spends her time trying to forget Wonderland. Dodge her best friend in Wonderland has grown up to become a soldier. He is just as flat and boring as Alice and the love between her and Dodge is soooooooooo fake.
The only likable character is The Mad Hatter.   Check it out!

Lost boy lost girl
Author
John Bul Dau
Review
this story was very good but very sad. in this story john goes through a lot of things that I don't think I would ever survive. in this story john and other boys had to drink there own pee. I personally thought that that was disgusting. in this story john went days and days without eating anything. I thought that they were all going to die. when I saw that they survived I was astonished. they went more days without eating than I ever had. the worst part is a lot of them died and the rest of the group had to leave them. even if I tried I don't think I could do that. in the end of the story john was able to marry Martha a girl that went through the same thing that john went through. I don't think that I could ever live knowing the things that I went through.

How They Choaked
Author
Georgia Bragg
Review
Queen Isabella of Spain? George Armstrong Custer? Vincent Van Gogh? All of these people are known in history for good or evil. And then they died. But how? Not all of these famous people were well known or liked when they lived. And when they died it was gruesome and messy.
I thought it was interesting to see how people actually lived. Vincent Van Gogh was three steps away from the insane asylum, and General Custer needed to get knocked off his high horse.
WARNING: This book is not for the squeamish.   Check it out!
