I think this is a fantastic book. It shows that if you work hard you can do almost anything. And while you read you learn interesting vocabulary words that you might not use in your everyday life.

Drama is a great book for you if you loved Smile! It was really helpful to me because I really want to be an actress when I grow up. The whole book is basically how people make all the scenes look as real as possible.

If a reviewer where to “instruct” a reader on if they should or should not read Instructions for a Broken Heart, by Kim Culbertson, the most important feature of the book that would “make or break it” for the reader would be if they could relate to the main character.

Out of My Mind is a excellent book for older kids because it shows that you can't judge a book by its cover. This book is from the perspective of a girl named Melody. She can't talk but is really cool and smart. No one knows this except for Melody.

Turtle in Paradise

Average: 4 (1 vote)

Turtle in Paradise is a great experience for young and older readers. It gets a little fantasy based close to the end, but the realistic and somewhat shocking end clears that up. Turtle, a young girl in the 1930s, is sent to Florida to live with her aunt temporarily.
