Hole in My Life | Jack Gantos

The prisoner in the photograph is me. The ID number is mine. The photo was taken in 1972 at the medium-security Federal Correctional Institution in Ashland, Kentucky. I was twenty-one years old and had been locked up for a year already -the bleakest year of my life-and I had more time ahead of me

Hole in My Life | Jack Gantos

I would recommend this book to middle school students because of the heavy content it contains. It talks about how a child had to navigate the world on his own.

Full Book- This book was a autobiography. It tells the story of how a young man without supervision ended up in in prison. This story is very authentic because it is an autobiography. The author has a lot of information into his own life and he writes it in detail.

Full Book- This book was interesting read, though it felt very long and drawn out. The biography is written about his early childhood, which he tends to be a prankster. The author looks at Arnold in a fair and positive way for most of the book.

Full Book- This book was a great read. It deals with the grief of a friend at such a young age. Jess didn't believe it at first, but soon recognizes it was real. Many kids might have to deal with some sort of grief in their lives and this book would be a great way of explaining that to them.

I believe this book would be a better pick for 6th graders. It is a longer read, and has heavier content for them to understand.

Full Book- This book was a great read. The summary of the book is that the dad who is interested in sports tries to get his son interested in sports as well. Garvey has the talent of singing. Garvey is often bullied through school and singing allows him to escape from this. I believe the author also does a great job of not stereotyping the main character.

The Madman of Piney Woods | Christopher Paul Curtis

When I left her office, I felt like she'd gut-punched me, brushed me off, slapped me back and forth, gave me a cool compress to put on my cheeks, cold-cocked me with a stiff uppercut to the jaw, picked me up, brushed me off again, then kicked me in the seat of my pants as she handed me a piece of cake and showed me the door.

I think this book would be a great read for 4th and 5th graders because of the adventures in this book. I believe the kids this age will be interested in the adventure in this book.

Full Book- This book was an interesting read. Two children one black and one white have come together because of their interest of a mysterious man in the woods. This story has elements of the story that act real, like the way the kids connect to each other. They connect because of their interest. The color of their skin does not separate them.

Bruno was sure that he had never seen a skinnier or sadder boy in his life but decided that he had better talk to him.

This book was a great read. I would recommend this book to 5th and 6th graders who know a little bit about the context of what happened in WW2.

Full Book- This was a heavy book to read. It is about a boy named Bruno who moved near a concentration camp. There he becomes friends with a boy inside the camp and eventually decides to join him. This book tells a gripping story with many realistic parts about the history of Auschwitz.

While most students were oblivious, these few stormed the streets of Aalborg on their bicycles to try to even the score.

I would recommend this book for 6th to 7th graders. I think this is a longer read and the information is heavy and might be hard to for the younger age group.

Full Book- This book was great and interesting read. It followed the life of a boy name Knud during WW2. He led a resistance group that vandalized German equipment and cut telephone wires. This book was historically accurate and told the story in full detail.

This book was a very unique read. History is told from a parrots perspective. It shows history where parrots have been around. From the landing of christopher columbus to the protection of parrots. I think the books purpose was to show how human involvement change the life of a parrot.

This poetry book is very descriptive about nature. It wants to make you guess about what type of object it is describing. It also contains different types of poems from repetitive to haiku.
