Good morning people! Today, I get to go to the library during school for a book club. I’m pretty excited for it, and can’t wait to talk to other people about the book “New Kid” Yesterday, I finished a book called “Beautiful Blue World” by Suzanne LaFleur (same other for “Counting to Perfect”) and I really enjoyed it. This morning, I got the sequel “Threads of Blue” from the library, and am excited to find out what happens to the main character, Mathilde. Last week, I had an orchestra performance, and I think we did pretty well. We have a great teacher, and most of us are very good at out instruments. Currently, I play the violin, but I might want to learn viola. Should I? Please tell me in the comments!

How To

How To Read A Book

A Simple Tutorial If You Know How To Read This

Step 1: Get a Book

In order to read a book, you need to find a book first. You could find one in your house, borrow from a friend, or get one from your closest library.

Step 2: Find Time To Read

Reading a book takes time, so clear out your schedule a bit.

Step 3: Sit Down With Your Book.

Find a nice quiet room with a comfy seat with enough light to read, and relax.

Step 4: Look At The Book

Hold the book so the title is facing you. Don’t get confused which side to look at, the title usually is in big, fancy letters with someone’s name below it.

Step 5. Read The Title

Now that you’ve found the title, read it like you’re reading this How To post. You can either read the title aloud, or in your head. What matters is you read it.

Step 6. Open The Book

It’s sort of hard to explain how to open a book, so I hope you already know how to do that. Here is a picture to explain

Step 7. Get To The First Page

The first page usually has a “Chapter One” at the top of the page. Similar to the title, read the book like you are reading this post. After you’ve read the first page, turn it to the next, and the next, and so on until the book is finished.


Book Review #2

Okay, so nobody answered my question if I should keep doing book reviews, so I’m going to keep doing them until someone asks me to stop.

The book is called “New Kid” and it is by Jerry Craft. This is a very quick read and I finished it in one afternoon. Here’s the summary from amazon:

“Seventh grader Jordan Banks loves nothing more than drawing cartoons about his life. But instead of sending him to the art school of his dreams, his parents enroll him in a prestigious private school known for its academics, where Jordan is one of the few kids of color in his entire grade.

As he makes the daily trip from his Washington Heights apartment to the upscale Riverdale Academy Day School, Jordan soon finds himself torn between two worlds—and not really fitting into either one. Can Jordan learn to navigate his new school culture while keeping his neighborhood friends and staying true to himself?”

This book isn’t my favorite, but it has received an award, so I still recommend this book.



Book Review

Hello, and good morning! Today, I decided to do a book review on a book I’ve recently finished, and fell in love with! The book is called “Counting to Perfect” and it is by Suzanne LaFleur. This book is perfect if you’re looking for a quick read. The summary on amazon says, “Cassie, competitive swimmer and rising seventh grader, plans to spend her summer at the pool with her friends. That way she won’t be stuck at home with her sister and her sister’s baby.

Julia used to be the perfect big sister: she played great games and took good care of Cassie. Now life at home revolves around Julia and her daughter, Addie. No one pays much attention to Cassie–not to her swimming, and not to what’s gone wrong with her friends.

When Julia confides in Cassie that she’ll be leaving with Addie–without telling their parents–Cassie jumps in the car, too. As the days of lumberjack breakfasts and hotel pools start to add up, Cassie has to wonder: Could the sister who seems to be the source of all her problems also be the friend she’s missed the most?”

I strongly recommend this book, and hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

Question: Should I do more Book Reviews?
