To Kill a Mockingbird is a fictional book. The book takes place in a rural area and mainly takes place in the south of the United States. The time period of the book is 1932 to 1935. The main characters of the story are Jean Louise Finch nicknamed “Scout”, her father Atticus Finch and her brother Jeremy Atticus Finch, nicknamed “Jem” the son of Atticus. Some other characters are Calpurnia who is the Finch’s housekeeper, Miss Maudie who is the Finch's neighbor, and children's best friend among the adults of Maycomb, and Boo Radley who is a neighbor who lives by the Finch’s and never comes out. An interesting part of the book was when Jem, Scout, and Dill go to the Boo Radley’s house and try to run up and touch it but they are afraid of getting caught by the Radley family because they think the Radleys are crazy and will hurt them. They think this because the Radley’s never come out of their house and in the past supposedly Boo Radley stabbed his father. I think that anyone who is interested in Fiction and suspense books would be interested in reading this, and how life was in the south many years ago.
I like to read all sorts of books with diffirent genres. But most of the books i have been reading this month have been realistic fiction. Check out my list:
Belly Up by Stuart Gibbs: I cried reading this book because the Hippo died. This book is realistic fiction.
Scat by Carl Hiaasen: This book was a really good book. It was about a teacher who gets seperated from her class.
Sheep by Valerie Hobbs: If anyone who likes dogs should read this book because it is a good but sad story about this border collie named Jack.
Paint the Wind is a realistic fiction book.
The setting takes place in the county side and also in a big mansion that
used to belong to her parents before they passed away.
One part of the book that I found interesting was how Maya’s parents
died. Maya and her family was
scuba diving and a shark came and damaged their body very badly, only Maya was
able to be saved but unfortunately not her parents.
The main character’s name is Maya.
She is a very friendly, quiet, and humble person.
Another main character is Maya’s grandmother.
Maya’s grandmother is a not very nice person, but Maya has to live with
her anyway, Maya isn’t at her house she is always at her Aunt Vi’s helping with
the horses. Aunt Vi’s real name is
Violet but she hates being called that so people call her Aunt Vi.
She is a very welcoming, nice, and giving person (when she isn’t being
called Vi). I think people should
read this book if they like riding or being around horses.
Confetti Girl is a realistic fiction book.
This book takes place in present day and its set in a neighborhood like
Sauganash. The main character is
named Apolonia “Lina”Flores. She
is very athletic and loves socks.
Another main character is Vanessa.
Vanessa is Lina’s best friend.
Lina feels like Vanessa has
everything Lina wants, Vanessa is pretty, smart, and athletic.
Lina has a very interesting sense of fashion, she likes to wear knee high
socks will everything she wears.
She is very tall and isn’t the sharpest knife in the kitchen.
In my opinion, one of the most interesting parts of the book was when
Vanessa made the soccer team and Lina didn’t because they talked so much about
doing soccer together. When
Vanessa started doing soccer she started making new friends and started hanging
out with them more and Lina became jealous and this causes a fight between
them. I think that anyone
would be interested in reading this book, especially people who like soccer
because it talks about soccer a lot.
