Summary
I reLly really liked this book. It was very interesting and very cool. It was sad but also interesting so it was really good overall. I think the author did a great job with
this book. I feel like Andy dint have to commute suicide but whatever since it was his choice. The book began with Andy and his friends, Robbie, Tyrone, and BJ going home after a basketball game. They were drinking and Andy was going to drop his friends off at their house and head to his girlfriend Keisha's house. On the was there, they got into a car accident. Andy, Tyrone, and BJ got out of the car when it toppled over but Robbie was trapped. Andy, Tyrone, and BJ did everything they could to try to save Robbie but Robbie was trapped and the car exploded, killing Robbie. Guilt filled Andy and he was very depressed for the rest of his life. He was very needy but Keisha was always around to help him. He expressed his feeling only in front of her and no one else knew much about how he felt. After the accident, he also dropped in his school work a lot which really got most of his teachers concerned. He replaced Robbie as Captain in the basketball team but he always felt like he wasn't good enough. Andy was getting extra help from his psychologist for this depression issue but Andy wasn't really very open about his feeling. He ended his psycologist session and soon, Andy and Keisha broke up because it wasn't working. Andy was really sad even though he tried not to be. He got even more depressed and couldn't go on any longer. He called his psycologist and Coach for help but they were both unaviable. Andy was depressed and with his dad's rifle, he shot himself and committed suicide. He didn't ask for any help from his family friends or teachers and he was dead on April 3rd. Everyone was mad and it was really sad. The book ended with letters from his freinds and Monty expressing how they felt. Overall, the book was really good but also very sad. THE END

Summary
I loved this book. It sort of reminds me of Wonder. This book is about a 10, almost 11 year old girl who has cerebral palsy. She is the smartest person in her whole school, but no one knows it, because she can't talk, walk, write, or DO anything. One day, she discovers something that will help her talk. It changes her life, and now she can be heard.

Summary
I liked this book. Mickey Coe and Amanda Underwood are in charge of their vacationing neighbor's cat, Bella. All they have to do is make sure she has enough to eat and does not destroy the house. Seems simple enough. But Bella escapes from the house and is hit by a truck. Mickey feels awful. Amanda has an idea to replace the cat with a look-alike from the local pet store, Cat Heaven. They find a cat that looks exactly like Bella, but the clerk will not sell it to them. So they decide to steal it. Big mistake! These cats are more what they seem to be. The cat act weird which makes the end of the story way more intense.
