Books I've Read in quarter one of 2012-2013
Most of my books that I have read over the quarter are non-fiction. I have really been into non-fiction books lately. Check out my list:
Ruined by Paula Morris: This book is about a new girl in town who hangs out with a ghost.
Trapped by Michael Northrop: I liked this book because it was about how a group of kids get locked up in a school because of a crazy blizzard.
Hoot by Carl Hiaasen: I liked reading this book because it was nice how kids try to save the Owls.
Where The Mountain Meets The Moon by Grace Lin: This book is pretty good, it's about this girl who goes on an adventure to find her family's fortune.
One Crazy Summer by Rita Williams-Garcia: I love this book because it was about three girls who meet their mother in the summer who had left them.
Book Project 1
This book is called, The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate and the genre of this book is historical fiction. This book takes place in the summer of 1899 in Calpurnia's sleepy Texas town. The main characters in this story are Callie, her grandfather, mother, Lamar, Sul Ross, and Tom. Callie is a girl who loves to spend time with her grandfather and likes to discover new things. The thing is, in reality Callie is expected to cook, clean, and sew. The most interesting and exciting part of the book is when she and her grandfather are about to find out an amazing discovery in the river where she mostly spends time with her grandfather. People that are interested in old century times and like The Origin of Species, this book would be great to read becuase this book is about the year in 1899 and it talks about how people communicated without phones and what the old century had to do if they owned a farm which Callie lived in. It also talks about the Orgin of Species and what creatures might be living in the river where Callie and her grandfather hang out.
